Ninian South restarts production following fire


Production on CNR International’s Ninian South platform has restarted following a fire last week.

A company spokeswoman said production had resumed yesterday (Sunday) four days after the platform was shutdown after a fire broke out close to its on-board turbines.

All 114 personnel on board were called to muster before being stood down. No-one was hurt.

CNR is investigating the incident.

The Ninian field is located about 249 miles north-east of Aberdeen.
