Press Statement 2
25 November, 2007
Petrofac, as duty holder of the Thistle Alpha installation on behalf of Lundin Britain Limited (a wholly owned subsidiary of Lundin Petroleum AB), can confirm that following the incident this morning, 116 non essential personnel were down manned to the nearby Murchison and Dunlin platforms. Safety systems and the emergency response team worked as designed. The situation has now been resolved. A full investigation is being conducted into the incident. Production has been shut down.
Petrofac and Lundin would like to thank all involved in this incident, especially the Coastguard, Bristow helicopters, search and rescue aircraft and the neighbouring platforms for their support and assistance.
53 of the 116 non essential personnel who were down manned to the Murchison and Dunlin platforms have now returned to the Thistle Alpha platform. 63 will remain on the Murchison platform overnight. All personnel are safe and well.
There were originally 159 personnel on the Thistle Alpha platform and 43 personnel remained on the platform throughout. A fire was reported on the platform at 08.07 today in the turbine module and was confirmed extinguished at 10:45.
The Thistle Alpha installation is located approximately 523 km (325 miles) north-north east of Aberdeen and comprises a steel jacket supporting a 3 deck platform, accommodation and heli-deck.
