Gas export from the field was down from normal levels due to a restriction on the oil export route for Elgin Franklin, according to the announcement.
Available capacity fell to 6 million cu m/d, down 4 million cu m/d from normal levels of 10 million cu m/d.
Total said the outage was expected to last until 4 pm Thursday, although the company added that: "The duration and impact of the field unavailability is uncertain at the moment," and updates are expected.
