Oil rig gas leak

North Cormorant oil platform

AN INVESTIGATION into Sunday’s gas leak on the North Cormorant oil rig 110 miles north east of Lerwick is underway.

The alarm was raised at 5.15am and the platform was shut down as a precaution, along with the neighbouring Eider and Tern platforms.

Operator TAQA Bratani said none of the 202 crew were injured, but as a precaution 92 non essential personnel had been transferred to nearby installations, 38 of whom were then flown to shore due to a lack of accommodation.

North Cormorant platform pipes oil to Sullom Voe oil terminal.
