Total (France) Chief Dies in Moscow Air Crash...

The boss of oil giant Total was killed in Moscow last night after his private jet crashed into an airport snowplough driven by a man who was 'drunk'.

Christophe de Margerie died instantly at Vnukovo airport along with three crew on board the Falcon 50 in a sudden crash which appears to be an appalling indictment of Russian safety standards.

The Paris-bound jet burst into flames after clipping the snowplough with its front wheel, causing the jet to roll and strike the ground.

The 'intoxicated' driver of the vehicle survived the collision and searching questions were being asked today about why the plane was given the go-ahead to takeoff while it was still on the runway.

Russia's Life News published dramatic footage of the scene after the crash, showing the still-burning wreckage of the jet surrounded by emergency workers. Vnukovo Airport suspended all flights after the incident.

A criminal investigation has been opened by the Investigative Committee, Russia's equivalent of the FBI.

'It has currently been confirmed that the driver of the snowplough was under the influence of alcohol,' said spokesman Vladimir Markin.

'A decision may be made to suspend a number of the airport's personnel during criminal investigations.'

The driver could face up to seven years in a penal colony, Tatiana Morozova of Moscow Interregional Investigative Department of the Russian Transport Investigative Committee told the Rossiya 24 channel.

FPSO "Cidade de Ilhabela" departs for Sapinhoá field,offshore Brazil.

The QGOG/ SBM consortium, hired by Petrobras to build and operate the FPSO Cidade de Ilhabela, departed Guanabara Bay on Sept. 21 for the Sapinhoá field, in the Santos basin pre-salt cluster. The FPSO has a planned local content rate of 65%, with thirteen of its modules built in Brazil: three at EBSE-Nuclep in Itaguaí, and 10 at the Brasa shipyard in Niterói, where integration and final commissioning took place. Cidade de Ilhabela will be anchored 310 km off the coast of Rio de Janeiro, at a water depth of 2,140 m, connected to eight production wells and seven injector wells. The vessel will be capable of producing up to 150,000 bopd, compressing up to 6 MMcmgd and storing 1.6 MMbbl of oil. It will also be capable of injecting 180,000 bbl of water per day. The platform is expected to start production in the fourth quarter of this year. The Sapinhoá area, originally called Guará, is located in exploration block BM-S-9 in the Santos basin pre-salt cluster. Petrobras is the operator and 45% owner of the consortium that is developing the block, in partnership with BG E&P Brasil Ltda (30%) and Repsol Sinopec Brasil SA (25%).
