Shell's Brent field resumes production

Shell has announced production has restarted in its Brent field after a seven month shutdown for safety reasons.

Brent Bravo, which lies 150 miles north east of Shetland, and Brent Alpha are again working.

It is expected Brent Delta will resume in the near future and Brent Charlie will restart early next year.

Production was halted on the platforms to replace heavy protective fenders from the waterline of Brent Bravo.
