Maersk Oil’s vessel, stationed about 280km northeast of Aberdeen in the North Sea, has undergone a major dry dock overhaul, while infield subsea infrastructure was removed and replaced. A 4D seismic survey and near-field drilling was also done over the area.

The project was necessary after the vessel was damaged in a storm on 4 February 2011. Maersk Oil says that once all the associated fields are fully operational, production will ramp up to more than 20,000boe/d.
