Azerbaijan: Seismic vessel crashes into offshore platform

Five offshore workers have reportedly been injured after a seismic vessel crashed into an offshore platform in the Caspian Sea.

ABC.AZ, citing Socar, Azerbaijan’s national oil company, said the incident happened on Wednesday afternoon with a vessel named Arya 141 involved.

According to the company, the vessel owned by Caspian Shipping Company was conducting seismic survey in the Narimanov area when it lost control and crashed into offshore platform #34.

Five of seven crew members were injured and 1 person was hospitalized. Socar is investigating the case.

Offshore Energy Today has reached out to Caspian Shipping Company, seeking more info on the accident and on the vessel itself, as we’ve been unable to find any info on “Arya 141.”
