Earlier this month the published delay factor was expressed as two months before supplies were resumed. Now we learn one section ( Harriot ) will not be back on stream until December. Is this due to the observed damage to the pressure vessels on one end now more serious than first thought rendering these vessels suspect for reuse. Without major fabrication repairs to the effected heat zone ends / heads of the vessels.
