As previously reported, Shell had removed 135 non-essential workers to nearby Brent Alpha and Bravo platforms after the Brent Charlie had lost power. Coast Guard assisted with helicopter transfers.

Power went down just before 5 pm last Tuesday and was restored on Friday, with 48 crew remaining aboard to find and fix the problem.

In a statement on Monday, a Shell spokesperson said: “The process to return all personnel to Brent Charlie was completed yesterday (Sunday).”

The Brent Charlie platform is located approximately 185km (115 miles) North East of Lerwick.
