Statoil ASA reported an oil spill in the North Sea estimated at 40 cu m during loading from the Statfjord A platform to the Hilda Knutsen tanker.

Oil was observed near the OLS B loading buoy between Statfjord A and Statfjord B. The leak was from a flange in the loading hose, the company said.

Loading to the tanker has stopped, and supply to the pipe and loading system from Statfjord A has been closed. Production at Statfjord A “is operating normally,” the company said (OGJ Online, Dec. 30, 2013).
