CNRL issues HSE notice for Ninian gas leak


Following an incident on the 5th February on the Ninain Southern platform, Canadian Natural Resources International (CNRI) have been handed a Health and Safety Executive (HSE) notice.

The HSE notice was issued for failing to warn staff during an emergency oil and gas leak when an uncontrolled release took place from an oil well.

HSE said CNRI’s measures to warn staff of the emergency were “ineffective” as no general platform alarm was activated and no address was made to workers.

The firm has been given until June 21 to make safety improvements to comply with the notice.

CNRI said no one was hurt during the incident and that safety is a core value for the company.

A spokeswoman for CNRI said: “CNR International (UK) Limited confirms that on 20th March 2019 an Improvement Notice was served by the Health and Safety Executive in relation to an incident during drilling activities onboard Ninian Southern, which resulted in no injuries to personnel.

Safety is a core value to CNR International. The company will comply with the notice in the prescribed timeframe.

The Ninian Southern is located 380kilometers from Aberdeen in the Northern North Sea.
