Siri still offline, says Noreco

Noreco has said an end could be in sight to some of its production problems across UK, Norwegian and Danish North Sea sector assets. 

The firm’s Huntington and Oselvar fields were both shut-in during parts of August.

At the E.ON E&P-operated UK North Sea Huntington field, issues are mainly related to the BP-operated Central Area Transmission System (CATS) pipeline system, used for export of Huntington gas. 

Huntington will continue to produce at reduced capacity until the issues are solved. BP expects that the CATS capacity restrictions will be lifted shortly, said Noreco.

Production from the DONG E&P-operated Norwegian North Sea Oselvar field remains unstable due to technical issues relating to the commissioning of a new gas turbine, installed at the BP operated Ula platform in August. These issues are expected solved shortly, said Noreco.

Production from the Danish North Sea Maersk Oil-operated Lulita field restarted on September 9. The field had been closed since April. 

There is still no firm date for when the Siri platform, also in the Dutch sector, will be able to receive oil and gas from the Nini, Nini East and Cecilie fields. It was shut-in after a crack was found in a bulkhead inside a riser support structure connected to a storage tank at the platform.
