Baku, December 9, AZERTAC
“Despite the bad weather condition, the search for the missing oil workers continues since the morning,” told the Chief Engineer of SOCAR’s Azneft Production Association Balamirza Agaragimov said at the press conference on December 9.
He said that helicopters were also involved in search operations.
According to him, the State Oil Company of Azerbaijan (SOCAR) has stopped production at the emergency platform No.10 of the Azerbaijani Guneshli oil field in the Caspian Sea in order to prevent the further spread of fire.
“There are a lot of flyovers and platforms in this water area,” said Agaragimov. “If we get any information from them regarding the oil workers’ whereabouts, ships will be sent there.”
