Gas leaks at North Sea FPSO

UK operator Dana Petroleum has detected a gas leak at its offshore unit in the North Sea.

In a email sent to Offshore Energy Today on Friday, Dana said production was partially shut in on the Triton FPSO following identification of a gas leak on subsea gas lift infrastructure.

According to BBC, the leak was identified on Thursday evening. The Dana spokesperson said the leak was isolated and made safe.

“The FPSO is continuing to operate with reduced production with its normal crew of 60 on board. All regulatory authorities have been informed. Work is continuing to effect a long-term repair,” the spokesperson ended.

The Triton FPSO is located in block 21/30 approximately 120 miles east of Aberdeen, and produces oil and gas from the Bittern, Clapham, Pict, Saxon, Guillemot West and North West fields.
