Statoil reports that on Tuesday 22 November at 17:30 the drilling rig Scarabeo 5 reported a fire in one engine room. Around 20:30 the fire was reported put out.

There were 106 persons on board when the incident occurred; all of them are accounted for and none are missing. One person will be sent ashore for a medical check.

33 persons have been transported from the rig by helicopter. 14 of these were flown to a nearby installation and 19 to shore in Kristiansund.

73 persons remained on board and there are no plans currently to move more people from the rig. Work is under way to achieve normalisation.

Scarabeo 5 is currently located at the Njord-field in the Norwegian Sea. No drilling operations were underway when the incident occurred. The rig is equipped with two engine rooms and a total of eight engines.

The standby vessels Ocean Response and Troms Sirius assisted the drilling rig. Three helicopters were in operation in connection with the incident.

There are no other installations currently at the Njord field.

Statoil’s second and third-line response organization has been mobilized to assist with the incident.
