Inspectors investigate Woodside fire

The petroleum safety watchdog has sent two inspectors to investigate a fire at a Woodside Petroleum-operated facility in the Vincent oil field off the state's northwest coast.

The National Offshore Petroleum Safety Authority (NOPSA) said it received a report of a fire at the Maersk Nguijima-Yin offshore petroleum facility, which occurred at midday yesterday.

"NOPSA was informed that when the fire occurred the process was shut down, facility personnel mustered and the Operator's Emergency Response Procedure was implemented," the safety watchdog said in a statement.

"There were no reported casualties.

"The NOPSA inspectors will establish the facts of the incident and review the operation of the safety systems for the facility."
