Offshore worker dies in North Sea

An offshore worker died at 11 o’clock on January 24 after falling into the North Sea while working on Total’s Culzean gas field. His body was found later the same day, and his family was then informed. The victim’s identity has not been made public.

”The rescue team was contacted around 11 o’clock and the Maritime and Coastguard Agency immediately started the search for him. An examination is currently taking place to confirm the victims identity”. A spokesperson from the Scottish police has told Scottish media.

The Culzean gas field was discovered by Maersk Oil in 2008 and is an HPHT gas condensate field in the East Central Graben area of the central part of the North Sea. It is located 260 kilometers from Aberdeen. With its resources, which are said to be equivalent to 250-300 million barrels of oil, the Culzean gas field is the largest British gas field found in a quarter of a century.

Production is expected to begin in 2019 and will continue for at least 13 years. It will cover five percent of the total British demand for gas. Total took over the gas field after purchasing it from Maersk Oil in 2018.
