Statoil postpones production restart at Njord field

By Dominic Chopping

STAVANGER -- Statoil said it has decided to postpone resuming production at the Njord field in the Norwegian Sea as reinforcements are needed to the platform structure before production can resume.

Extensive analysis and inspection work carried out during the shutdown this summer has revealed the need for reinforcements to a number of beams in the platform structure before production can be resumed.

It is anticipated that the work may need to continue towards the summer of 2014.

Production at Njord was stopped on July 27 and the platform was then emptied of oil and gas. At the time the plan was to resume production in mid September.
