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

A Royal Norwegian Navy frigate has collided with a Malta-registered oil tanker in a fjord in Norway as it was returning from North Atlantic Treaty Organisation exercise Trident Juncture.

The footage, which was posted on Twitter, shows the warship resting on its side in shallow water near the coastline where the vessel was beached to avoid sinking.

The KNM Helge Ingstad frigate collided with the tanker in a fjord in western Norway this morning and eight people were left injured.

The Norwegian Navy reports eight light injuries to the crew, and all 137 evacuated and safely ashore.

That's a resume with victories against Michigan State, Wisconsin and Penn State , and a seven-point road loss to Notre Dame. Iowa State was ranked for the first time this season, one of five teams to move into the ranking this week.

The 134-meter-long (440 foot) frigate was returning to its home port of Haakonsvern, southwest of Bergen, when the incident occurred. Two are being treated in hospital.

Rear Admiral Stensoenes said the cause of the accident was not clear and the Navy would wait for the findings of Norway's Accident Investigation Board.

The tanker, with 23 crew, suffered damage well above the waterline.

The Sture Oil Terminal processes about 500,000 barrels a day of North Sea oil, including oil from the Ivar Åssen, Grane and Edvard Grieg fields.

He declined to comment on what would happen to the weapons on board the ship. The fuel was expected to evaporate quickly. It had recently taken part in NATO's large-scale Trident Juncture military exercises, where it was engaged in submarine hunting maneuvers.

The company said "the sture terminal and Kollsnes plant resumed operations Thursday afternoon after being shut down in connection with the collision".

The warship is now in danger of sinking, while the tanker, named the Sola TS, is slightly damaged and did not spill oil.

The Accident Investigation Board added that because the tanker is Maltese-registered, the Marine Safety Investigation Unit (MSIU) of Malta will also participate in the investigation.
