Drilling rig Bredford Dolphin

During drilling operations on the Bredford Dolphin rig, operated by Lundin Norway, an incident occurred at 01.45 yesterday (16.01.14) morning.

  • There was a breach in the riser 65 metres under the deck of the rig. The safety distance to the reservoir is good which means there is no risk of hydrocarbon flowing. All safety systems are intact. The well is shut in and under control, the BOP closed and the well fully secured. No one was affected by this incident and all 88 persons on board the rig are safe, says the Managing Director Norway, Torstein Sanness.

When the riser parted it contained water based mud and "yellow chemicals". These chemicals are approved by the authorities and are not categorised as environmentally damaging.
