The operatives were able to see that oil was leaking from a cap in 285 metres of water. All production from the subsea installations on Draugen was shut down until the source of the spill had been identified. Routine notifications were provided to the Norwegian Pollution Control Authority (SFT) and the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD).
