One person is dead after a work accident on board the Maersk Resolute drilling rig in the Nini East field. DONG Energy is the operator of the field. The deceased worked for one of DONG Energy's sub-contractors. The relatives have been informed.

The accident occurred at around 10 pm Sunday night. The details of the accident have yet to be determined. The situation is under control and no one else has been injured.
