WEATHER WINDOW ACTIVITY SLOWS OFF NORTHWEST EUROPE
Field development off Northwest Europe during the summer weather window saw a gear change downward from the brisk pace of 1993's window. Last year was marked by severe storms, yet operators completed one of the most productive drilling and development seasons since the North Sea opened to the oil industry. Weather around the North Sea has been relatively calm this year. So has the pace of work in one of the slackest weather windows in years.
