Petrobras investigates ‘rough’ helicopter landing on FPSO

Earlier this week, a helicopter had a rough landing and crashed into the heliport of the Petrobras-operated P-37 FPSO, offshore Brazil. 

Brazilian state-owned oil giant reported on Wednesday that a S76C model helicopter, owned by Omni Taxi Aereo, crashed laterally into the heliport. The aircraft had taken off from the São Tomé Farol heliport.

The aircraft was carrying two crew and eight passengers. In addition, six people were on the helipad at the time of the accident. Four people were injured and received medical assistance. They were sent for medical evaluation in Macaé.

The P-37 floating production storage and offloading unit, located in the Marlim field in the Campos Basin, continues to operate normally.

Petrobras has informed the competent authorities and will set up a commission to investigate the causes of the accident.

This is the third accident to happen recently on the same field, following a collision between a support vessel and a Petrobras-operated FPSO and an incident with a riser of a P-19 which was dropped and caused a leak of oil into the sea.
