Norway: One Person Goes Missing from Visund

A person has been reported missing after not showing up for work this morning at the Visund installation. The installation is in the North Sea and is operated by Statoil. A search of the installation started at once.

The search has now been extended to the sea. Helicopters and vessels are conducting the search.

The missing person is a contractor employee.

“We’re now doing all we can to find this person,” reports Hans Jakob Hegge, senior operations vice president on the Norwegian continental shelf.

“Our emergency response organisation is assising the Joint Resque Coordination Centres”.

More information will be supplied as and when it becomes available.

Visund is an oil and gas field in blocks 34/8 and 34/7, 22 kilometres north-east of the Gullfaks field in the Tampen area of the Norwegian North Sea.

On stream in the spring of 1999, this development embraces a floating production, drilling and quarters platform.

The subsea-completed wells on the field are tied back to the floater with flexible risers. Oil is piped to Gullfaks for storage and export. The Visund field began producing gas and exporting it to continental Europe on 7 October 2005.

Visund North is a separate subsea development about 10 kilometres from the platform.
