TikTok videos offshore
Earlier this year a TikTok video showing an offshore worker lighting a flare on a North Sea installation also attracted hundreds of thousands of views.
The video posted on June 6 by user Benjamin Lunde showed a crew member fire a flare over the stack to start the gas-burning process.
Comments suggest the video may have been filmed at the processing facilities on Equinor’s Sleipner A installation.
