By Maksim Tsurkov - Trend:
Fire has been extinguished at another gas well at the platform #10 of the Gunashli field in the Caspian Sea, said the Azerbaijani Emergency Situations Ministry Jan. 15.
The fire broke out on the offshore platform Dec. 4, as a strong storm damaged an underwater high-pressure gas pipeline. As many as 33 people were rescued in an ensuing large-scale operation. The bodies of 11 killed were retrieved, while 19 oil workers are still listed as missing.
At present, the Ministry of Emergency Situations continues work to extinguish fire at other wells of the platform.
