Oil rigs plagued by safety lapses

Figures from the HSE show that Shell UK was challenged last year over lack of maintenance checks for pipes carrying hazardous hydrocarbons from the Brent Alpha platform. In 2003, a gas leak on the installation killed two men for which the oil giant was fined £900,000. It was served an improvement notice in 2007 for failing to inform the HSE of safety breaches.

Norway Oil Producers Say Rig Strike Can Be Averted (Update1)

The strike imperils output of 220,000 barrels of oil a day, or about 9 percent of Norway's total oil production.
