Man overboard at Scarabeo 8 rig. PSA starts investigation

The Petroleum Safety Authority (PSA) Norway has resolved to investigate an incident where a person fell overboard from Scarabeo 8 on the Goliat field in the Barents Sea on February 20, 2015. 

After being recovered by the Esvagt Aurora, the person involved was sent to Hammerfest Hospital with minor injuries. According to the PSA, the area around the accident site has now been cordoned off and activity suspended.

Among other objectives, the PSA investigation will seek to clarify the course of events and identify the direct and underlying causes of the incident.

Scarabeo 8 rig

Scarabeo 8 has been operating for ENI Norge from the beginning of 2012 and will operate up to at least 2017.

The rig is capable of operating under harsh environmental conditions and is constructed especially for this purpose. The rig is equipped with a dynamic positioning (DP) system, allowing drilling at extreme water depths.

It is a 6th generation rig, with a double derrick, designed to offer enhanced operating capacity and performance. This particular rig has a long, bright and busy future ahead in Norwegian waters.
