Statoil said it has resumed production at its Gullfaks A platform after it was shutdown due to a gas leak.

The move comes after two other incidents involving the company’s operations on the Norwegian Continental Shelf.

On Saturday workers had to be evacuated from the Songa Endurance rig which was in use on the Troll field.

Meanwhile, Statoil was also forced to remove personnel from its Statfjord A platform.

It is not yet clear when production at Statfjord A will resume.
