The ministry of emergency situations of Azerbaijan continues measures to eliminate the consequences of the accident at the deepwater platform No. 10 of the country’s offshore Guneshli oil field, the ministry’s website said Jan. 3.
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.
Two Azerbaijani firefighting vessels still battle the fire, while the search for the missing oil workers continue, according to the ministry of emergency situations of Azerbaijan.
