A fire is being managed at Statoil’s Eisenbarth well pad in Monroe County, Ohio. The incident was reported at 9 am (EST) to the company’s alarm center. Emergency responders were immediately notified about the situation.

Statoil’s incident command team has been mobilised and is responding.

The fire involved equipment on the location. It is limited to surface equipment. None of the wells have been or are on fire. All personnel on the location are safe and accounted for.

Statoil’s emergency response management is handling all situations based on a worst-case scenario and adjusting the measures to the actual development of the situation. As an additional safety precaution residents close to the well pad have been asked to temporarily evacuate. We are coordinating closely with local first responders.

Investigations as to the cause of the incident are underway but our first priority is to take care of the people involved in the situation, then the environment and our surroundings, and finally to protect the technical integrity of the well and associated equipment.
