Baku, October 4, AZERTAC

About 95 tons of oil have been leaked into the North Sea from a BP platform, the company has said, according to The Guardian.

The leak is about two and a half times smaller than the biggest North Sea spill in recent years, at Shell's Gannet platform off Aberdeen in 2011.

The spill from the Clair platform is being monitored from the air by plane which, combined with modelling, shows the oil moving away from land in a northerly direction.

"The most recent surveillance flight already indicates significant dispersal of the oil at the surface," the company said in a statement.

The platform, 46 miles (75km) west of Shetland, was shut down following the spill on Sunday at about 10am. The leak was caused by a technical issue with a system designed to separate the mixed production fluids of water, oil and gas, the company said following an investigation.
