Taqa’s Harding platform in the North Sea is expected to restart production early next week.
Production was halted last week due to a glitch affecting power generation on the platform, around 200miles north-east of Aberdeen.
A burst water pipe in the accommodation block on Thursday made matters worse and prompted the company to down-man non-essential staff.
A spokeswoman for Taqa said yesterday that the power supply had been fixed, but that the company would not resume production until next week.
She said: “Main power generation on Harding has been restored, however we have taken the decision to commence some future activities that required the platform to be shutdown.
“We expect Harding to be in a position to restart production early next week on completion of these activities.”
