SHELL is ahead of schedule on repairing the Mars tension leg platform, damaged by hurricanes last year and expects it back online next month, writes Martyn Wingrove.

Shell Exploration ' Production has notified pipeline operators that it will restart one of the Gulf of Mexico's largest platforms in mid-May and that full production will be reached by end June. The deepwater production unit represents 5% of the region's oil and gas output and its topsides were severely damaged by Hurricane Katrina.

'The Mars platform recovery and deepwater pipeline repairs were among the most technically complex operations in the world for us,' Shell's head of exploration and production in North America Marvin Odum said. He expects construction activities on Mars TLP will be over by the end of next week and production will commence after a re-commissioning programme.
