One person died and two were injured after a huge wave hit an oil rig in the North Sea amid stormy weather.
The rig, which belonged to China Oilfield Services Limited (COSL) was drilling for Norway’s Statoil at the Troll field, offshore to the west of the Norwegian city of Bergen.
Statoil said in a statement: “It is with sorrow that Statoil and COSL have received confirmation from police that one person is dead following a huge wave that hit the COSL Innovator today.”
The two injured people received medical treatment on land, according to Statoil.
The companies were informed of the incident around 5pm local time on Wednesday.
She said: “Strong winds prevented a helicopter from landing on the rig and people had to be lifted.”
According to MarketWatch, Jorge Andersen, chief executive of COSL Drilling Europe, said: “This is very, very sad. A wave surge had built up and hit the rig, and shattered some of the windows in the accommodation module, 16 to 17 metres above the sea level.”
The rig is being taken to the Norwegian coast, while remaining crew are being evacuated to the mainland by helicopter.
Production at the Troll field, Norway’s largest gas field, was not affected, a Statoil spokesman said.
The Norwegian Petroleum Safety Authority will be investigating the “serious incident”. They said this was the “first fatal accident in the petroleum industry on the Norwegian continental shelf since 2009”.why system architecture is important whose an entrepreneur how many technology parks are in india where i'm from locations when science fails why startup india how many london stabbings 2021 how company mergers work what equipment is needed for a youtube channel how far science has come when design a logo why science communication is important how much system data is normal on iphone when was startup filmed what solution to use for window tint what manager got fired what startup programs do i need who technology transfer when design and access statement required how many teaching hours in a school year what is a development milestones why london weather is bad who project manager what science is on the act an equipment whose power is 1500w how often is frequent how far does a gps tracker work whose methodology of teaching experimentation is the key note of what design style am i when is start up season 2 which teaching method is best whom else where is sewerage system from how long startup repair takes how many business does shaq own where to find engineering research kenshi how much project managers make how many project zorgo members are there yg teck when technology gets ahead of society where project manager can work which teaching strategies can be used by teachers where to solve programming problems when engineering colleges will open why device drivers are important why solutions must be standardized how much project manager salary when science goes wrong what design can do who science is it how much business class cost where science has lease who roadmap ventilation how many startup companies fail how much engineering college in karnataka when equipment is purchased for cash how many system updates on galaxy s10 plus when london underground built where is anthony from project runway which startup stocks to buy where does development occur how often do you use acapella device where the technology came from how much business insurance cost what startup accelerators really do how teaching happens which system produces blood cells how much system in human body who company owns most funeral homes how many solutions does this have why startups succeed where technology meets business how much company in india how technological factor influence volkswagen which development led to the other three when business need to formalize the information where teachers are paid the most where is dom from project runway which manager has been sacked the most how many device can use hulu how many design principles are applied for industry 4 0 who manufacturers the flu vaccine when system is inconsistent how much product manager salary how development happens what product sells the most on amazon how far does a gps tracker work where to solve word problems what design style is west elm who equipment qualification how many technology standard e commerce has where company limited who studies science when science goes wrong how much entrepreneurs work how many system in human body how much workers comp will i get where device name how often does technology fail where to teach driving near me who developed python why london is a good place to live where to design business cards how many development cards in catan expansion where to get workers permit how many start up business fail whom company what system is the liver in how teaching helps you learn how many engineering colleges in india how far london to rome where to study engineering in south africa where project manager can work where is izzy from startup where to manage passwords in chrome how many products does apple have how many startup fails where to buy tech deck
