Dec. 6 (Bloomberg) -- Statoil ASA stopped production last month at its Heimdal natural-gas field after an inspection raised concern about the integrity of wells, Upstream reported.
The 400,000-cubic-meter-a-day gas field in the Norwegian North Sea stopped operating on Nov. 15, Upstream said yesterday, citing an incident report filed with Norway’s Petroleum Safety Authority.
Ola Anders Skauby, a spokesman for Statoil, said no leakages or changes in pressure have been observed at the wells, Upstream reported. Skauby said he couldn’t estimate how long the shutdown will last.
