Oil giant Royal Dutch Shell has said it is working to stop a leak at one of its North Sea oil platforms.
The company would not say how much oil may have been spilt from the Gannet Alpha platform
The company confirmed the leak was continuing but said it was being significantly reduced
Oil giant Shell says a leak in a North Sea pipeline is under control. A leak in a flow line leading to the Gannet Alpha oil platform, 180 km (113 miles) east of Aberdeen, was found on Wednesday. The company said the size of sea surface affected was estimated to be some 31 km (19 miles) by 4.3 km (2.5 miles) at its widest point - it is unclear how much oil has escaped.
Big oil rigs and refineries from Royal Dutch Shell and other oil companies will soon be hit by serious terrorist attacks, in the middle east, Africa and other parts of the world as well.
