Statoil: Well Incident at Snorre. Workers Evacuated

Statoil has informed that on Saturday evening a situation arose in which drill fluid was lost as a new well was being drilled on Snorre A, in the Tampen area of the North Sea in Norway.

While it was possible to quickly reduce the loss of drill fluid to the reservoir, adverse weather conditions created some uncertainty as to when a vessel might get out to the platform with a new supply of drill fluid. As a purely preventive measure, 117 out of a total 254 platform personnel were transferred to Gullfaks A and Gullfaks C.Statoil Well Incident at Snorre

The well in question is being cemented and closed. Once this task has been completed, and new drill fluid has been received on board, the personnel will return to Snorre A.
