Since 1982, 115 collisions have been reported on the Norwegian Continental Shelf, with varying degree of severity. In the period 2001–2010 there have been 26 reported collisions. None of the collisions has caused loss of lives or personnel injuries. The economic consequences however have been significant, especially one collision in 2009. This paper will give statistical summaries of the events, and compare the development of events with previous periods. The focus will be on the six most severe cases, describing each case, the damage and emphasise the most common causes of these events.
