WATCH Norwegian Frigate Beached After Colliding With Tanker

Oil tanker & Norwegian Navy frigate ‘collide’ off country’s coast 7 reported injured

A collision between the frigate Helge Ingstad and the tanker TS Sola off the Sture terminal near Bergen in western Norway has led to the closure of the Vestprosess pipeline and Kollsnes gas processing plant.

The frigate, built in Spain in 2009, has a helipad platform on its stern.

The Norwegian military is investigating the incident.

The frigate was returning from North Atlantic Treaty Organisation military exercises.

The Portuguese superstar immediately ran to the corner flag, lifted up his shirt and pointed at his impressive stomach muscles. Mourinho is unpopular among Juventus fans after managing bitter rival Inter Milan for three years.

He said the frigate had been pushed by towboats into shallow water where it could not sink fully. According to Norway media reports, frigate sustained heavy damages, water ingress, probably in danger of sinking, all 137 crew evacuated, 7 were slightly injured.

The defence expert believes the weapons-carrying vessel and heavily loaded oil tanker had "huge luck".

Norway's largest oil and gas company, Equinor, formerly known as Statoil, said its non-emergency activities at the Sture terminal where the collision occurred were shut down as a precaution for many hours but were gradually starting up again late Thursday afternoon. The oil tanker received only slight damage, while the frigate has been seriously damaged.

The Sture terminal has a capacity to store one million cubic meters of crude oil and 60,000 cubic meters of liquefied petroleum gas in rock chambers.

No leak from that vessel was reported. Launched in 2007, the warship is named after the famous Norwegian Arctic explorer. The next part - a command post exercise - will be held from November 14 to 24.

Germany is the second largest contributor to the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation exercise, coming in behind the United States. A total of 31 countries are participating in the exercises, including non-NATO members Finland and Sweden. The United States' nuclear-powered aircraft carrier USS Harry S. Truman will also be taking part.

The Norwegian Armed Forces are leading the recovery operation in close co-operation with the Norwegian Coastal Administration.
