Royal Dutch Shell (RDSa.L) said on Monday it has stopped its Draugen field in the Norwegian Sea for maintenance on April 30 and plans to restart it on May 13.

The maintenance stop is due to end May 13, a Shell Norge spokeswoman said. The stop is going very well, everything as planned.

According to the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate, Draugen's estimated production for 2008 amounted to 62,000 barrels of oil per day, with small amounts of gas and natural gas liquids. (Reporting by Oslo newsroom)
