Statoil resumes production at Statfjord A platform after leak

Statoil ASA resumed production from its Statfjord A platform in the North Sea on Dec. 29 after an oil and gas leak was reported on Dec. 28.

Statoil depressurized and shut down Statfjord A (OGJ Online, Nov. 15, 2013) and found the site of the leak.

About half of the 168 personnel on board were moved to nearby installations and later returned to Statfjord A after the leakage had been stopped. Statoil said there were no injuries during the incident.
