By Reuters

Petroleumworld 12 29 2017

A BP spokesman said that its major ETAP oilfield system as well as the Bruce field in the North Sea were restarting following the resumption of flows through the UK's Forties pipeline.

The spokesman said that the Andrew platfrom remained shut due to planned maintenance.

The 450,000 barrel per day Forties pipeline was shut on Dec. 11 after a crack was found. After repairs, flows resumed at the start of this week.

Flows through the pipeline are expected to return to normal levels in early January.
