Norwegian police have released the names of eight of the workers involved in a North Sea helicopter crash.

There were 13 people on board a flight from Statoil’s Gullfaks B platform when it crashed closed to Flesland Airport near Bergen.

British oil worker Iain Stuart, 41, was named as one of the victims of Friday’s crash yesterday.

Earlier this morning, Statoil also confirmed its employee Ole Magnar Kvamme, had died in the incident.

Karsten Moholt said their employee, 51-year-old Kjetil Wathne, had also died.

The company’s chief executive Linn Cecilie Moholt paid tribute to him and said he wanted to thank his employee’s work for the company over the years.

CHC Helicopter have confirmed their employee, Italian national Michele Vimercati, 44, had been one of two crew members on the flight.

Behnam Ahmadi, 54, and Otto Michal Vasstveit, also 54, had both also worked for Halliburton.

Odd Geir Turoy, 54, and Arild Fossedal, 43, had both worked for Aker Solutions.

A moments silence will be held later today across Statoil in remembrance of those who died.

More than 10,000 signatures have been received for a petition calling for Super Puma EC225s to be withdrawn.

Statoil said production has resumed from the Gullfaks B platform. It had been shut down in the aftermath of the crash as colleagues of those killed were given time to grieve.
