Successful completion of Brage maintenance

The most comprehensive maintenance in Brage’s history has been completed successfully. 

The planned four week maintenance shutdown allowed the modification teams to carry out major work that will allow the platform to keep producing at a high rate until the next shutdown in 2017. 

Teams of Wintershall staff and contractors worked in shifts around the clock carrying out significant work including changing the pipes on the export line and replacing the control system for the gas turbine. 

Wintershall took over the operatorship of the field from Statoil in October 2013 and was granted an extension to the lifetime of the facility until 2030.

“This is the most comprehensive shutdown in Brage’s history and the first with Wintershall as operator. The work we have carried out makes us confident of maintaining strong production figures until our next planned shutdown in 2017 and lays the groundwork for us to keep producing until 2030,” says Alv-Bjørn Solheim, Wintershall Norge Head of Production Operations. 

Wintershall’s planned production figures for 2014 are unaffected by the shutdown, which has been planned several years in advance. 

“A thorough service and maintenance programme such as that undertaken on the Brage installation is a good example of best practice. Wintershall has several teams, which constantly work on improvements and optimisation of maintanance processes on a global scale,” says Solheim.
