An investigation is underway after a gas leak on a North Sea platform.
Production was temporarily shut down on the Beryl Alpha platform around 200 miles from Aberdeen after the incident earlier this month.
Operator Apache said the leak was suspected to have come from a flow transmitter on one of its wells.
The transmitter has since been sent back onshore for inspection following the leak, which saw production shutdown overnight.
A spokesman for Apache said: “Production from Beryl Alpha restarted the following day (14 July), the company investigation is still ongoing and the leak was suspected to have come from a flow transmitter on well A39.”
The incident comes after Petrofac was issued with an improvement notice earlier this month following a gas leak on the Kittiwake platform.
The HSE (Health and Safety Executive) said it continued to be updated by Apache’s own investigation team.
A spokesman said: “HSE is aware of the incident and is in contact with the dutyholder, Apache.”
In 2012, Apache Corporation acquired all the assets of Mobil North Sea including the Beryl field.
It now has a 50% interest and is the operator.
Hess Limited holds 22.22%, Enterprise Oil Limited has 22.78% and the remaining 5% share is held by OMV (UK) Limited.
