Maersk’s Gryphon FPSO Back in Operation After Storm Damage
COPENHAGEN, May 29 (Reuters) – The oil unit of Danish oil and shipping group A.P. Moller-Maersk said one of its floating Gryphon oil production platforms was back in operation and would soon ramp up output.
The Floating Production Storage and Offloading Unit (FPSO) was damaged during a storm in February 2011 and had been under repairs since.
The group said in a statement once all the associated fields were fully operational over the coming months, production would ramp up in excess of 20,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day. (Reporting by Copenhagen Newsroom; editing by James Jukwey)
