Baku, October 4 AZERTAC

BP has spilled hundreds of barrels of oil in the North Sea, in a leak from its Clair platform, according to Telegraph.

The energy giant said the leak was stopped within an hour of being spotted on Sunday morning and it had temporarily shut down the platform, 46 miles west of Shetland, while it investigated the precise cause.

The leak comes at an embarrassing time for BP as it coincides with the release of the film Deepwater Horizon, about its disastrous oil spill in 2010, which spewed more than 3m barrels into the Gulf of Mexico. The company has battled to improve its safety reputation. Last year Shell was fined £22,500 over the 2011 leak of 216 tonnes of oil from its Gannet Alpha platform in the North Sea.

A BEIS spokesman said: “Safety is the Government’s number one priority. We are working closely with BP and the Maritime and Coastguard Agency to resolve the incident on the Clair platform.”
