Offshore worker airlifted from North Sea platform

An offshore worker has been airlifted from an oil platform in the UK North Sea. 

According to Evening Express, a daily newspaper in Aberdeen, the crewman was working on Canadian Natural Resource’s (CNR) Tiffany platform located 155 miles north-east of Aberdeen. The evacuation followed after the medical emergency was raised at 9.25am. He was subsequently airlifted by a Bond helicopter and arrived at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary at 11.43am.

Tiffany began first oil in 1993. The Toni and Thelma fields are subsea tie-backs, with production via subsea manifolds to the Tiffany platform. Oil from the fields is exported from the Tiffany platform via a short link to the Brae – Forties oil pipelines and onward to shore at Cruden Bay in North East Scotland. Gas volumes are transported northwards via pipeline to the Brae field for fuel, re-injection and as immediate gas sales.

Offshore Energy Today reached out to CNR seeking further info. Should there be any additional information, the article will be updated accordingly.

Update:

CNR confirmed that one person was transferred by helicopter to shore due to a medical matter.
