Tanker rams Norwegian Navy frigate tearing hole in its side

“KNM Helge Ingstad” at port in Hammerfest a few years ago

According to the Norwegian Coastal Administration, a 10-cubic metre helicopter fuel tank on the frigate was ruptured.

As far as KNM Helge Ingstad is concerned, Lieutenant Colonel Finberg has indicated that he was returning to his base after taking part in Trident Juncture 2018, the most important North Atlantic Treaty Organisation exercises since 2002.

Johan Marius Ly of the Norwegian Coast Guard said the 442ft frigate, which had recently taken part in the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation drill Trident Juncture, was listing, adding: "We have been told that there is a leak from the frigate".

The Helge Instad is 442 feet long and was built by Spanish shipbuilder Navantia in 2009. All 137 people on board the warship had to be evacuated after the clash with the Sola TS tanker and it eventually ran aground.

An operation was underway Thursday to try to stop a Norwegian navy frigate from sinking after it collided with a Maltese oil tanker in a fjord in western Norway. Eight navy personnel are said to be injured, including two flown to regional hospital, Haukland, but the tanker Sola's 23 crew were all evacuated safely.

Stensoenes said the ship was "strongly listing" - or leaning to one side - and that it had been pushed by towboats into shallow water, where it can not fully sink.

Trump told reporters he has not discussed the post with Christie, who he said was "a friend of mine" and "a good man". In any of those instances, a House investigation against the president could ensue with or without Mueller's report.

The Sture oil terminal, which has about 6 million barrels of underground oil storage capacity, is the receiving terminal for Oseberg Blend (105,000 bpd impacted) and Grane Blend (260,000 bpd impacted).

Police and the national Accident Investigation Board were investigating the accident, which took place at 0326 GMT.

"We are in a security phase for the time being", he added.

He declined to comment on what would happen to the weapons on board the ship. The ship had recently participated in the Trident Juncture exercise, one of NATO's largest training events in recent years.

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 frigate lost power and control after the crash Sola, and the ship was pushed by tugboats into shallow water where it can't fully sink.
