Marathon Oil firm fined over gas leak in North Sea




(MENAFN) An oil firm has been fined over 1 million pounds, in one of the biggest ever fines in a case of its type, sue to a North Sea gas leak.

The incident occurred on Marathon Oil's Brae Alpha platform, 155 miles north east of Aberdeen in 2015.

The company admitted Offshore Installations (Prevention of Fire and Explosion, and Emergency Response) and Health and Safety at Work Act breaches.

No injuries were reported, as most of the 100 personnel on the platform had been gathered in the accommodation block, ahead of their Boxing Day meal, so they were not near the leak.
