Oil tanker & Norwegian Navy frigate ‘collide’ off country’s coast 7 reported injured

All 137 crew members of the frigate HNoMS Helge Ingstad were evacuated.

The KNM Helge Ingstad frigate, which was returning from Nato's Trident Juncture exercises, was evacuated after the collision with the Sola TS tanker, Norway's army said.

The 134-meter (442-foot) long frigate, built in Spain in 2009, is part of a NATO fleet in the Atlantic.

The 62,000-tonne tanker, which was flying the Maltese flag, was only slightly damaged and none of the 23 people on board were injured, the rescue centre said.

A Royal Norwegian Navy frigate has collided with a Malta-registered oil tanker in a fjord in Norway as it was returning from North Atlantic Treaty Organisation exercise Trident Juncture.

It can take a significant amount of time for larger ships to sink, with some taking up to 15 hours to be fully submerged under water.

Several offshore rigs that were pumping their production into the Sture terminal, a major tanker port for crude oil, temporarily suspended the flow, Norwegian newspaper Dagens Naeringsliv reported. Both Norway's Accident Investigation Board and Malta's Marine Safety Investigation Unit will investigate the collision, as the tanker was registered in Malta.

It is now waiting to be towed to a nearby oil terminal.

"We are very glad that no lives got lost and that the injuries are not more serious than they are", he added.

Some 10,000 liters (2,642 gallons) of ship's fuel and helicopter fuel is reported to have leaked into the sea.

The frigate, which recently took part in a major North Atlantic Treaty Organisation military exercise, was aground and tilting on one side, live television pictures showed.

"According to our assessments, there's no reason to believe that anything, like an accident, could happen with the weapons" on board, he said.

Norway's largest oil and gas company Equinor, formerly known as Statoil, said it shut down non-emergency activities at the Sture terminal "as a precautionary measure".

The KNM Helge Ingstad has been listing dangerously since Thursday's collision in the Hjeltefjord near Bergen.
