Respol Sinopec finds no evidence of North Sea leak, triggers production

After extensive investigations, Respol Sinopec had found no evidence of a North Sea oil leak.

The operator launched the probe after an oil sheen was spotted near its Montrose Alpha and Arbroath platforms in the UKCS North Sea on Saturday, March 12.

The firm shutdown production and de-pressurised the pipeline as investigations were carried out; however, it has found no indication that the sheen was a result of a production leak.
