The HSE said the operator could not demonstrate the adequacy of fire and gas detection systems aboard the Lomond, (pictured) 145 miles east of Aberdeen.
A Shell spokesman said: “We confirm that we have been issued with two HSE improvement notices in relation to maintenance and testing procedures and the fire and gas detection system within a small number of process modules at our Lomond installation,
“We are currently working to address the requirements of these improvement notices.”
The platform is currently shut down for planned maintenance.
Recently, Shell was also issued with a prohibition notice by the HSE over a gas leak on its Brent Charlie platform.
The installation, 115 miles north-east of Shetland, was shut down following the leak in May, and more than 30 workers were taken off.
