Fifth Statoil Algeria employee confirmed deceased

Norway’s Statoil verifies, Thursday, all five of its personnel involved in the In Aménas gas facility lost their lives in the terrorist attack two weeks ago.



“It is with deep sorrow that we have received the news today that Victor Sneberg, our country manager in Algeria, is among those who lost their lives in the terror attack at In Amenas,” says chief executive Helge Lund in a statement.

56-year-old Mr Sneberg, from the town of Sandnes, western Norway, was reported still missing earlier today. 

News of his death comes one day after the four coffins containing Tore Bech, 58, 55-year-old Hans Martinus Bjone, Alf Vik, 43, and 35-year-old Thomas Snekkevik were returned to Norway by plane.

“Five friends and colleagues who were going about their work for Statoil will never return to their loved ones. They represented the very best of our company. Our thoughts and deepest compassion go first and foremost to the families, friends and colleagues who have lost those dear to them. Everyone in Statoil shares their grief. In the time ahead those most affected will need our support,” declares Statoil CEO Helge Lund.

Norway’s Petroleum and Energy Ola Borten Moe is to represent the government at a mourning ceremony for the deceased in Bergen’s Håkonshallen on Monday 4th February at 12:00 Central European Time.

Personnel at all of Statoil’s facilities will also observe a minute’s silence on that day and at that time.

Statoil’s flags will continue to fly at half-mast up to and including the Monday. 

The company is in addition to hold a memorial service at its office in the Algerian capital Algiers.
