The fire in the engine room of the crude oil tanker Dubai Harmony moored at Equinor’s Sture terminal in Øygarden municipality on the west coast of Norway near Bergen has now been extinguished.

At 1102 this morning, Equinor's alarm center received reports of a fire in the engine room on board Dubai Harmony, which was loading at the quay at the Sture terminal.

The fire has now been extinguished and the fire service is continuing to cool the area where the fire took place.

The 102 people who were at the Sture terminal were evacuated from the terminal when the incident occurred as a precaution, while only personnel with emergency tasks remained at the terminal.

The emergency organization in Equinor will maintain dialogue with the public rescue service and other relevant authorities.

Production at the Sture terminal, which receives oil from Oseberg, Grane, Edvard Grieg and Svalin, was not affected by the incident.

Dubai Navigation Corp, which owns Dubai Harmony,  is a privately owned company established to invest in Dry Bulk, Tanker and Container assets at historically low levels.
