NORWAY -- A fire onboard the oil rig Scarabeo 5, which is drilling in the North Sea, has caused workers to evacuate the rig.

- The situation on Scarabeo 5 has not been clarified, but it is under control. It is no longer visible flames or smoke on board, said Morten Eek, spokesman for Statoil's development, production and exploration activities on the Norwegian continental shelf.

- We are now working with a final clarification towards normalization on the rig, said Eek.

Altogether 33 of a crew of 106 were evacuated when the fire occurred in the port engine room onboard the rig. 19 were flown to Kristiansund, while 14 were flown to nearby installations.

- At 18.45 there were 73 people left on board, and no more are planned moved from the rig. The people on board are no longer in lifeboats and can go back to their cabins, said Eek.

Scarabeo 5 is operated by Saipem Norwegian Branch. The drilling rig notified about the fire at 17:30.

- We will continue working to secure the place. It is still very hot at the site, says Eek, who can not yet say anything about the cause of the fire.

Three standby vessels are at the rig to assist Tuesday night, including cooling of the very hot area. Six firefighters have also been inside the room where the fire occurred.
