Helicopter Accident in Norway

It was with great sorrow that we yesterday learned that a colleague from our base in Bergen, Norway, was onboard the helicopter that crashed shortly before landing in Bergen. Our thoughts go to the employee’s family and colleagues.

Upon receiving this information we immediately mobilized our emergency response team and established contact with the employee’s family. Our focus has been, and will continue to be, on providing care and support for the employee’s family and our colleagues in Norway.

We are appreciative of the immediate emergency rescue efforts initiated by the local authorities at the crash site, even if such were in vain. We are also thankful to Statoil for the dedicated, well-coordinated and professional crisis response team that was established very shortly after the crash, and which have been working 24/7 since then to provide care and support to the families of the victims.

We express our sincerest condolences to the families, friends and colleagues of those who lost their lives in in this tragic accident.
