Baku, December 17, AZERTAC
Fire in the oil wells on the platform 10 in the deepwater Gunashli off shore oil field has been completely extinguished, Azerbaijan State Oil Company (SOCAR) said.
By extinguishing burning oil wells the threat of oil spills into the sea has been eliminated. Fire was fully extinguished in two gas wells and work continues to extinguish it in other gas wells, SOCAR said.
Fire was caused after a storm damaged a gas line on the platform in the Gunashli section of the Azeri-Chirag-Gunashli off shore oil field.
