PARIS (Dow Jones)–Drilling relief wells near the Elgin oil rig in the North Sea to stop a natural gas leak may take more than six months, French oil major Total SA (TOT), which owns the rig, said Friday.

“The time taken to drill wells in Elgin surpassed six months so it is right to expect a similar timeframe (for the relief wells operation),” Eric Casse, Total’s Drilling & Well Operations Manager for Europe, the Americas and Central Asia said in a video posted by Total on its website.

Another monster from the deep.

A cloud of gas was reported to be surrounding the platform, which is located 150 miles (240km) off Aberdeen.

Workers from a second platform and drilling rig have been removed.

Shell has moved 120 non-essential staff from the Shearwater platform and Hans Deul drilling rig, about four miles from the Elgin, because of the drifting gas.
