The FINANCIAL — A mourning ceremony will be held on Monday 4 February in Håkonshallen in Bergen, Norway, for our missing and deceased colleagues after the terrorist attack at In Amenas.
The missing employee is Victor Sneberg, 56 years old, resident in Sandnes, Norway. The four who have been confirmed dead are Tore Bech, 58 years old, resident in Bergen, Norway, Hans M. Bjone, 55 years old, resident in Brandbu, Norway, Thomas Snekkevik, 35 years old, resident in Austrheim/Bergen, Norway, and Alf Vik, 43 years old, resident in Grimstad, Norway. The caskets of the deceased will shortly be brought home to Norway where a private casket reception will be held.
The mourning ceremony in Bergen on 4 February will commence at 12.00. As Statoil said, it is intended for the next of kin, those directly affected, representatives of management, support staffs and other Statoil employees involved. Representatives of the Norwegian authorities will also be in attendance.
A one-minute silence has been planned for Statoil locations at 12.00 Norwegian time on the same day or, if necessary, at another suitable time. All Statoil locations will continue flying the flag at half-mast until, and including, Monday 4 February. There will also be a memorial service at Statoil’s office in Algiers, Algeria, later during the week. Condolence books will also be placed in central Statoil locations.
