Noreco: Siri Subsea Storage Tank On Line in Q4
Subsea 7 carried out work to stabilise and re-establish the integrity of the Siri platform following the discovery of cracks in the platform’s structure in 2009.

The technical installation work related to the permanent repair of the Siri platform has been completed and production from the Siri field has partly resumed.

Documentation and authority approvals remain before final commissioning, which will allow use of the subsea storage tank.

This repair work, combined with production from the Siri field, is expected to result in more stable production from the other fields in the Siri area as well.

The crude oil storage tank at the Siri platform is likely to be on line early in the fourth quarter. The temporary solution with production directly to shuttle tanker will then be terminated.

The Siri field consists of three reservoirs and it’s operated by Dong Energy.
