Baku, Azerbaijan, Dec.29

By Maksim Tsurkov – Trend:

Search for the oil workers who went missing as a result of the accident at Azerbaijan’s Guneshli offshore field continues, Deputy Minister of Emergency Situations Etibar Mirzayev told reporters Dec.29.

Four helicopters, as well as the ships of the State Border Service have been involved in the search, according to the deputy minister.

He noted that despite the adverse weather conditions, the search for the missing hasn’t been suspended.

“We continue the search along the coast as well,” said Mirzayev.

A fire broke out on the offshore platform Dec. 4, as a strong storm damaged an underwater high-pressure gas pipeline. As many as 33 people were rescued in an ensuing large-scale operation. The bodies of eight killed were retrieved, while 22 oil workers are still listed as missing.
