Norwegian Energy Company ASA (Noreco) said production at the Huntington field has been further delayed.
Work had been due to resume this month but the company said there had been an incident during restart of the CATS riser platform.
A spokesman said it would be closed until at least Thursday.
The Huntington field has been closed since October due to export restrictions in the CATS pipeline system.
Last month, Premier Oil said production from the field had been due to resume.
The field has a long history of production problems since its start-up. It was previously shutdown in May while repair works were carried out on the floating production and storage unit which serves the project. It was then closed from July 31 until August 26.
The North Sea field is about 200km east of Aberdeen.
