Statoil resolves oil, gas leak on Statfjord A

STAVANGER, Norway -- On Saturday 28 December, an oil and gas leak was reported on the Statfjord A platform in the North Sea. Statfjord A was depressurized and shut down. The leakage was stopped, and the site of the leak was found and isolated.

There were 168 personnel on board the installation. No-one was injured during the incident. The personnel were mustered and approximately half of them were moved to nearby installations since it was uncertain how long the incident would last.

The situation on the platform was quickly normalized, and all transferred personnel were returned to Statfjord A.

Production from Statfjord A resumed on December 29.
