Offshore operators meet after crash
A diver works on the wreckage of the Super Puma L2 helicopter which went down about two miles west of Sumburgh airport on Shetland
An emergency meeting of key offshore operators is being held to discuss contingency plans following a fatal helicopter crash in the North Sea.
Super Puma flights to and from UK offshore installations were suspended in the wake of Friday's crash in which four people were killed.
The helicopters account for about half of the available seats used to transfer platform workers to and from the UK offshore installations.
The meeting of operators and major contractors is expected to look into the use of alternative helicopters, how to make better use of available flights and the possibility of transferring workers by boat to ensure offshore production is not affected.
Hundreds of workers are flown to and from oil platforms every day and there are concerns that the grounding of the Super Puma will cause a backlog of workers waiting to go on and offshore.
Aircraft operators are involved in the talks.
Organised by industry body Oil and Gas UK, the meeting is being held in Aberdeen hours after the bodies of three of the oil workers were brought back to the city's harbour. It is understood the fourth body will arrive on Tuesday.
The Super Puma was carrying 16 passengers and two crew from the Borgsten Dolphin platform when it crashed into the sea off Shetland on Friday evening, killing three men and one woman. Rescuers recovered three bodies in the aftermath of the incident and the fourth was removed from the wreckage on Sunday.
The victims were named as Duncan Munro, 46, from Bishop Auckland, County Durham; George Allison, 57, from Winchester, Hampshire; Sarah Darnley, 45, from Elgin, Moray; and 59-year-old Gary McCrossan, from Inverness.
It is not yet known what caused the CHC-operated helicopter to crash into the sea as it approached Sumburgh airport on the southern tip of the main island. The wreckage is expected to be transported to shore later for examination by a team from the Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB).
