Siri Area Fields Back In Production

Thursday the 28th of January, the oil tanker Siri Knutsen was connected via pipelines to three of the Siri area’s four oil fields, offshore Denmark. Thus, E&P is again able to produce from the Siri area, and yesterday Nini East delivered the first oil drops.

The fields in the Siri area have not been in operation since July 2013. This is due to a crack found in a new area of the sponson – the tank nose – on the Siri platform’s oil tank. However, thanks to the hard work of many employees, the fields Cecilie, Nini and Nini East are now little by little back in operation. The only difference being that the oil will not, as is otherwise the case, be sent to the oil tank below the Siri platform, but directly to a tanker.

“We have been working determined to get Siri’s satellite fields back in production in order to create value, while repairing the Siri platform at the same time. On the platform we still have a huge work in front of us before we can produce from the Siri field itself,” says Flemming Horn Nielsen, country responsible for DONG Energy’s Danish oil and gas business.
