The incident occurred on Platform B and production has been shut-in from that platform. Prior to the incident, production from the platform had been around 17,000 barrels per day of oil.
"The Atwood Beacon was undergoing pre-load testing while positioned next to Belida. The rig suddenly listed 20 degrees to starboard. About 107 people were evacuated by lifeboat to another platform safely. No injures were reported," the BP Migas Officical said.
"Work to put platform-B back into production is underway. We expect production to resume as soon as possible, because this incident will affect national production."
