RockRose said today that “a number” of workers on the Brae Alpha platform in the UK North Sea are in “self-isolation” amid concerns they have contracted Covid-19.
A source told Energy Voice that 11 people were in quarantine on Brae Alpha, 136 kilometres north-east of Aberdeen, in the central North Sea.
A spokesman for RockRose said: “As always, the safety and wellbeing of our staff is paramount and like all other operators in the North Sea, and in conjunction with the authorities and OGUK, we are taking all the necessary precautions to protect our staff.
“As such, for precautionary measures, a number are currently in self-isolation and we are monitoring the situation.”
BP and Shell have also been dealing with suspected cases on the UK continental shelf this week.
