An offshore worker has been hospitalised after sustaining a “crushing injury” at a North Sea oilfield.

The worker was hurt during a pipelaying operation on Monday evening on the North Sea Atlantic vessel, which is stationed at the Edvard Grieg field off Norway, operated by Lundin Energy.

Lundin said it is working with TechnipFMC, who was overseeing the work, to investigate the cause.

The individual was flown to hospital in Bergen for treatment following the incident, which took place while installaing flexible pipe on the seabed for a satellite development for Edvard Greig.

North Sea Atlantic is owned by North Sea Shipping.

Lundin Energy Norway managing director Kristin Faerovik said: “We take this incident seriously.

“Obviously, no such accident should ever occur, and an investigation will be performed in close collaboration with TechnipFMC to examine how this could happen.

“Now that the injured person is under expert medical treatment, our top priority is that the next of kin are taken good care of”.

Edvard Grieg lies around 110miles west of Stavanger in the North Sea.
