PSA investigates hydrocarbon leak at Gjøa

The PSA has launched an investigation into a hydrocarbon leak on the Gjøa field on 21 June 2017.


The incident happened during normal operations. According to the operator Engie E&P Norge AS, the leak occurred in a condensate pump. It is unclear how large the leak was.

The condensate did not ignite and no-one was harmed by the incident.

The PSA has decided to investigate this incident.

Our investigation will focus in particular on discovering the underlying causes, both technical and operational, that may have contributed to the incident.

The investigation will result in a report that will be published on ptil.no.
