Shell isolates Curlew FPSO from gas line

Shell has today said the divers have managed to isolate the Curlew FPSO from the Fulmar gas line, following a gas leak detected near the FPSO on Monday night, in the central North Sea, 220 kilometers east of Aberdeen, Scotland.

The gas reportedly leaked from subsea infrastructure which is connected to the Fulmar Gas Line exporting gas to the St Fergus terminal, several hundred meters from the FPSO.

The company’s spokesperson has said that the work was carried out by deep sea divers with the ROVs who managed to isolate the floating production storage and offloading unit by closing two valves on the interconnecting pipeline.

“This was completed last night and, as a result, gas export via the Fulmar pipeline to the St. Fergus gas plant restarted early this morning,” the spokesperson said.
