BP (BP) and Hess (HES) Under Pressure with Fire on Platform
July 13, 2011 2:10 pm
It appears that a fire has broken out on a BP (BP) run platform in the North Sea which is partnered with Hess (HES). This comes after last week we saw that TransOcean (RIG) had a leak on one of its platforms (See Article Here). According to sources, the fire was extinguished within a half an hour and all on board were evacuated with no injuries as the events transpired.
They have shut down this platform until they can examine the damage.
