Supply Vessel Collides With Equinor North Sea Platform
A supply vessel collided with the Equinor-operated Statjord A platform in connection with loading operations. Statfjord A, one of the oldest platforms on the Norwegian continental shelf, was in a scheduled production stop, and Equinor said in a statement that there was no production on the platform when the incident occurred.
Statfjord A had 276 people on board when the incident occurred, all of whom have been evacuated by helicopter to nearby installations (Statfjord B, Statfjord C, and Gullfaks A). Equinor said there were no injuries on board the platform. The supply vessel (PSV Sjøborg) was on its way to land on its own power with 12 people on board.
Equinor said its emergency response organization has been gathered and is assisting in the situation. The total extent of the damage on the platform is now being investigated. The area standby vessel Stril Herkules is at the field and is assisting in the work to clarify the extent of the damage.
Located in 489-ft water depth in the Statfjord field, Statfjord A has produced more than 5 billion bbls of oil since its start-up in November 1979. Equinor announced in May that it would decommission the platform, with permanent plugging of wells beginning this year. Statfjord B and Statfjord C are scheduled to remain on stream until at least 2025.
