Lundin Cuts Output From Edvard Grieg Field

Posted by December 12, 2017

Production at the Edvard Grieg field off Norway had to be temporarily reduced following the Forties pipeline shutdown, the field's operator, Lundin Petroleum, said on Tuesday.

"Following the Forties pipeline shutdown, Lundin Petroleum has had to temporarily reduce production from Edvard Grieg due to a lack of capability at the St Fergus terminal to process our produced gas," it said in an emailed statement to Reuters.

"We are initiating a process at Edvard Grieg to inject the gas which will allow us to resume full production within a few days," it added.

Edvard Grieg exports gas via the SAGE pipeline to St Fergus terminal in Britain and processes gas from the nearby Ivar Aasen field operated by Aker BP.

The closure of Britain's biggest oil pipeline from its North Sea fields, has also disrupted gas flows through the network, which carries a third of Britain's gas produced offshore.
