change text size

Statoil announced Thursday lunchtime (UK time) that Victor Sneberg, the last of its missing employees after the terror attack on the In Amenas gas facility in southeastern Algeria January 16, has been confirmed as dead.

The news comes a day after the bodies of four other Statoil employees who were victims of the In Amenas attack were flown back to Norway.

On Thursday, Statoil Chief Executive Helge Lund said in a statement:

"It is with deep sorrow that we have received the news today that Victor Sneberg, our country manager in Algeria, is among those who lost their lives in the terror attack at In Amenas.

"Five friends and colleagues who were going about their work for Statoil will never return to their loved ones. They represented the very best of our company. Our thoughts and deepest compassion go first and foremost to the families, friends and colleagues who have lost those dear to them. Everyone in Statoil shares their grief. In the time ahead those most affected will need our support."

Statoil added that a ceremony to mourn its dead employees will be held Feb. 4 in Håkon's Hall in Bergen, Norway.
