PSA to Investigate Oil Spill at Draugen Field

The PSA will investigate an oil spill in connection with loading from Draugen to Navion Scandia on Thursday, January 10.

Preliminary estimates indicate that the discharge amounted to slightly less than 10 cubic meters.

Draugen is located on Haltenbanken in the Norwegian Sea, and is operated by Shell.

The Petroleum Safety Authority Norway established its emergency center after being notified of the discharge Thursday morning.

The PSA's task in an emergency situation is to supervise how the operator handles the incident.
