Oil major Shell has cancelled all flights to its two fields in the Norwegian Sea.
The company has taken the decision after 13 people were killed on a flight returning from Statoil’s Gullfaks B platform on Friday.
The move will affect journeys to its Draugen and Knarr fields.
It’s understood the operator has said it is “too early” at this stage to determine how long the decision will stay in place.
A spokesman for the company said:“Shell has with sadness followed the reports of the tragic event outside Bergen in Norway. Our thoughts and condolences go out to the families and colleagues of the victims. We are confident that every measure will be taken to reveal the cause of the accident and to ensure the safety of the people of our industry.
