OIL giant Shell confirmed yesterday that non-essential personnel had been taken off two North Sea platforms on Sunday.

About 100 workers were shifted from the North Cormorant installation after one of the two boilers broke down. Meanwhile, a similar number of people were moved from the Cormorant Alpha unit after one of the three power generators failed.

A spokeswoman for Shell said it was hoped that the two platforms would be fully manned again by today. Fog has been hampering efforts to fly workers back on board.

One Shell employee who contacted the Press and Journal said that the incidents could be associated with a lack of maintenance, but this has been denied by the company. and its sister non-profit websites,,,,,, and are owned by John Donovan. There is also a Wikipedia feature.
