    Statfjord A Oil Rig Evacuated After Collision


    CHC helicopters evacuated 276 people from the Statfjord A oil rig in the North Sea after collision by the platform supply vessel (PSV) Sjøborg during loading operations

    * Statfjord was discovered by Mobil in 1974, and then Statoil, now Equinor, took over the operatorship in 1987. Statfjord A, one of the field’s three condeep concrete production platforms, came online in 1979 and is one one the oldest platforms still operating in the North Sea. It had been shut since the end of May for maintenance expected to last through July. It is scheduled to decommissioning in 2022

    Statfjord A Oil Rig Evacuated After Collision


    Equinor, June 08, 2019 - On Friday, 7 June at 0155 Norwegian time the supply vessel PSV Sjøborg collided into the Statfjord A platform in connection with loading operations.

    Statfjord A is currently in a scheduled production stop, and there was no production on the platform when the incident occurred.

    Equinor’s emergency response organisation has been gathered and is assisting in the situation.

    There were 276 people on board Statfjord A when the incident occurred. There are no injuries on board the platform.

    The total extent of damage on the platform is now being investigated. PSV Sjøborg is on its way to land on its own power. There are 12 people on board the vessel.

    Damage to the lifeboat station and the need to clarify the extent of the collision mean that personnel have been moved from Statfjord A to nearby installations.

    Two searches and rescue helicopters (SAR) and a helicopter from the rescue coordination centre have flown personnel from Statfjord A to Statfjord B and C, and Gullfaks A.

    The area standby vessel Stril Herkules is at the field and is assisting in the work to clarify the extent of the damage.

    On Friday, 7 June at 0155 Norwegian time the supply vessel PSV Sjøborg collided into the Statfjord A platform in connection with loading operations. Statfjord A is currently in a scheduled production stop, and there was no production on the platform when the incident occurred.
