Statoil reported that at 10:30 pm on Thursday night, a gas leak was reported at Kårstø processing plant. The emergency services and authorities have been notified about the situation and Statoil’s emergency response organisation has been established.

All personnel have been accounted for and brought to safety. A notice to neighbours has also been sent in accordance with protocol.

Statoil reported later that the pressure is starting to fall and work is continuing on depressurising the facility.

The gas leak occurred in the Statpipe-facility where the gas pipelines connect to the facility for processing.

There may be visible flames (controlled burn-off of gas) from the three process flares at the facility while this continues.

All personnel have been accounted for and there is now only a skeleton crew of 25 people who are at the facility to manage the incident.

The cause of the incident has not as yet been determined.
