OSLO, Sept 5 (Reuters) - Equinor has discovered an oil spill at its storage terminal in the Bahamas in the aftermath of hurricane Dorian, the Norwegian energy company said in a statement on Thursday.
"Our initial aerial assessment of the South Riding Point facility has found that the terminal has sustained damage and oil has been observed on the ground outside of the onshore tanks," Equinor said.
"It is too early to indicate any volumes. At this point there are no observations of any oil spill at sea," it added.
All of Equinor's 54 employees on the island are confirmed safe and accounted for, the company said.
In preparing for the hurricane, Equinor shut down operations at the South Riding Point terminal on Aug. 31, and none of its staff were at the site during the storm.
"We have informed the local authorities of our initial assessment and remain in dialog with them," Equinor said.
"While weather conditions on the island have improved, road conditions and flooding continue to impact our ability to assess the situation and the scope of damages to the terminal and its surroundings." (Reporting by Terje Solsvik, editing by Deepa Babington and David Evans)
