DONG Energy Resumes Use of Siri Oil Storage Tank
DONG Energy has resumed production under normal conditions in the Siri area after having used a temporary solution for more than six months.
The oil from DONG Energy’s oil fields in the North Sea: Siri, Nini, Nini East, Cecilie and Stine-1, is now sent directly to the oil tank below the Siri platform. This takes place after completion of extensive repair work lasting several years.
Flemming Horn Nielsen, Country Responsible for DONG Energy’s Danish oil and gas activities, said: “It’s a milestone that we’ve resumed producing to the oil tank. The Siri repair work has been a huge project for the organisation. We were faced with a complex offshore project where we had to optimise the design and construction solutions on a regular basis. Throughout the period, our employees have delivered a fantastic job.”
The Danish Energy Agency’s final approval of the repair solution is still pending.
