Norwegian company Statoil reported of an oil spill in the North Sea yesterday.

It said around 40 cubic metres – or 250 barrels – of oil leaked when it was loaded on the Hilda Knutsen tanker from the Statfjord A platform.

“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 added in a statement.

Statfjord is one of the oldest producing fields on the Norwegian Continental Shelf.
