STAVANGER, Norway -- Production from the Siri area fields in the Danish North Sea in June averaged 13,875 boe/d, says partner Noreco.

Output was impacted by a planned maintenance halt of four days. Following replacement of a component in a centrifugal compressor on the Siri platform, flare gas levels and lift gas availability have improved. A final upgrade of the compressor is due later this year.

The SCB-1 well on the Siri field remains shut in pending repair of a subsea safety valve.
