Gas detection was reported on Statfjord C at 03.30 Sunday morning. The alarm was triggered by an oil leak. The site of the leak has been identified and the leak has been stopped.

The crew of 270 people mustered at the lifeboats, but they could quickly return to their living quarters. No personnel were injured.

It has been confirmed that a limited amount of oil has leaked into the sea. We are currently working on mapping the extent of the leak. The platform has been shut down.

The weather in the area is harsh, and includes high waves. There are emergency response resources in the area to observe, and Statoil is considering inspection from the air.
