An offshore worker has been put into quarantine on a North Sea platform operated by Chrysaor.
The firm said an individual suspected to have coronavirus has been placed into isolation on its Britannia installation, 130miles north-east of Aberdeen.
A spokesman said the person’s family has been informed and that the firm is liaising with Health Protection Scotland to ensure the safety of its workers on board.
He added: “The health and safety of everyone who plays a part in Chrysaor’s operations is our number one priority.”
Chrysaor, now the UK’s largest oil and gas producer, became operator of Britannia in October after completing a £2billion purchase of ConocoPhillips’ assets in the region.
Earlier today, Hurricane Energy confirmed a worker had contracted coronavirus at its Aoka Mizu FPSO in the West of Shetland.
