Work­ers hurt in rig fire

7 Days in Dubai - - GLOBAL NEWS -

Fire broke out on an off­shore rig run by the sub­sidiary of a Qatar-based drilling com­pany, in­jur­ing six work­ers. It was the se­cond dis­rup­tion within a year aboard one of the firm’s plat­forms. Gulf In­ter­na­tional Ser­vices, partly owned by state-run Qatar Pe­tro­leum, an­nounced the fire at its GDI-3 rig in a state­ment pub­lished on the Qatar Stock Ex­change yes­ter­day. It said the work­ers were treated in hos­pi­tal. In July 2015, off­shore rig Ru­mailah suf­fered what the com­pany de­scribed as a “punch-through in­ci­dent” while in the Al Sha­heen oil field off Qatar’s north-east­ern coast. No one was in­jured.
