Oil exploration   Statoil will close wells on a case-by-case basis

Statoil ASA said on Thursday it is evacuating staff from the Eagle Ford shale region as Hurricane Harvey moves closer to the Texas coast.

The Norway-based oil producer is securing its two drilling rigs in the shale region.

The company will close wells on a case-by-case basis depending on flooding risk, though the company's goal would be to not close a well, said spokesman Erik Haaland.
