The Sture terminal and the Kollsnes plant resumed operations Thursday afternoon after being shut down in connection with the collision between the frigate KNM Helge Ingstad and the tanker Sola TS at the Sture terminal early Thursday morning.

The collision occurred in a western Norway fjord as the KNM Helge Ingstad was returning from North Atlantic Treaty Organisation exercises, with 137 people aboard. Eight injured crew members were taken off as well as the other 129 on board.

The tanker, which was carrying a crew of 23, was returned to port for an inspection.

The ship was returning to the Haakonsvern Naval Base near Bergen after the military exercises, officials said.

The tanker had set sail from Equinor's Sture oil terminal with a cargo of North Sea crude. The Norwegian Accident Investigation Board, the Defense Accident Investigation Board and the Maltese Marine Safety Investigation Unit are all investing the incident.

Heavy shipping traffic is the norm at Sture, where a quarter of all oil produced in oil-rich Norway is processed.

Districts with Large Foreign-Born Populations Sent Far-Left Democrats to Congress
We'd been hearing for months about the record number of women running for office, and last night, voters turned out for them. Women are also more likely to identify as Democrats or lean Democratic, according to a 2018 Pew Research Center survey.

Pictures show the 5,290 ton, 440 foot frigate lying low in the water as it sinks beneath the waves.

"It took on a lot of water and there is a real danger that it sinks where it is", an official for the Sola rescue center told Agence France-Presse.

An image of the ship tipped to one side was posted with the comment.

Helge Ingstad took on water and all 137 personnel were evacuated, according to the statement, which added that eight suffered minor injuries.

There are no reports as to when the damaged navy vessel, which is part of NATO's Atlantic fleet, will be salvaged. "There is no control over the leak and the stern is heavily in the sea".

Norway's Accident Investigation Board has launched an investigation into the collision, which also involved a tugboat.
