The barge which today caused mayhem on the North Sea has been brought back under control, vessel owners Eide Marine said. BP and ConocoPhillips were forced to shut down production and evacuate platforms in the central North Sea after the barge broke away from its moorings in stormy weather, posing a threat to the installations.
