Report: Fire Alarm Triggered at Statoil's Heimdal Platform

A fire alarm has been triggered at the Statoil Heimdal platform in the North Sea, according to Norwegian daily newspaper Stavanger Aftenblad.

The alarm went off early Friday morning, according to the paper, when more than 60 workers were on-board. Production was shut down as a result of the alarm, Stavanger Aftenblad said.

Statoil was not immediately available for comment.

The Heimdal Gas Center, on Production License (PL) 036, is a hub for the processing and distribution of gas. Gas from Heimdal is processed together with gas from the Huldra and Vale fields. In addition, Heimdal receives gas from the Oseberg Field Center through the Oseberg Gas Transport system (OGT). 

The total maximum rate of processed gas on Heimdal is comparable to between 15 to 20 percent of Norway’s total gas export.
