Oil and gas production is shut at the Oseberg field in the North Sea after mulitple power failures yesterday, and the situation is still unstable, Statoil (STO +0.3%) says. The company plans to airlift some workers from the area out of ~700 working on the facilities during a period of high activity. Oseberg gas output today was cut by ~21M cubic meters/day.

  • If this evolves in a way that the Elgin Field gas leak evolved for Total (TOT), then revenues could be severely impacted at Statoil (STO).

  • Shut in. Get it right.

     

    Electrical failures are a fact of life. They will be back on production by Monday.
