Pre-operational verification is now under way at the Prirazlomnaya platform in the Barents Sea, the Sevmash Production Association said in a statement, Interfax reported.

A commission of inspectors from Gazprom Neft Shelf, which holds the license to develop the Prirazlomnoye field, Gazprom Neft and others looked at project documentation and the main drilling support systems, plus other equipment. They approved 24 of 31 systems, and any flaws with the rest will be rectified soon, the statement said.
