ENGIE E&P Norge says a gas leak occurred last night at the Gjøa field complex in the North Sea, although the situation is under control.
The field is west of Florø on Norway’s west coast.
No injuries were reported, the leak has been stopped and normalization measures are in progress onboard the semisubmersible Gjøa platform. Production is currently shut down.
Forty nine people were on board when the incident occurred, of which 19 were demobilized by helicopter and taken to a support center in Florø.
The company’s emergency response organization is coordinating all support required and is in dialogue with the relevant authorities.
