UPDATE 1-Oil tanker, frigate in accident off Norway, no sign of oil leak
There was no sign of any leak from the Sola TS oil tanker, rescue leader Ben Vikoeren at the Joint Rescue Coordination Centre for southern Norway told Reuters.
The tanker had earlier left Equinor's Sture oil shipment terminal with a cargo of North Sea crude.
The KNM Helge Ingstad frigate took on water and was at risk of sinking. Its crew of 137 had been evacuated, Vikoeren said.
The tanker vessel will return to port for inspection, he added.
The KNM Helge Ingstad had recently taken part in NATO's Trident Juncture military exercise, which centred on defence of Norway. (Reporting by Terje Solsvik Editing by Darren Schuettler and Raissa Kasolowsky)
