A team from the PSA will travel out to the rig, which is working on the Njord field in the Norwegian Sea, on 24 November. It will also assist the police inquiry into the same incident.
Scarabeo 5 is operated by Saipem Norwegian Branch. The operator on Njord is Statoil.
The goals of the PSA investigation include clarifying the course of events and identifying the direct and underlying causes in order to contribute to lessons learnt and experience transfer.
This investigation will result in a report to be published on the PSA website at ptil.no.
