A worker who died after falling from a rig last week has been identified by police in Norway.
The deceased was Freddy Olsen, a 43-year-old from Arendal, Norway, Aftenbladet reported.
Maersk Drilling said on Thursday there had been an accident involving two employees on its Interceptor rig around midday.
The company initially said one of the employees had fallen from the rig and had been taken to hospital for treatment.
It said the second crew member had been treated on board the rig for injuries and was being picked up by helicopter.
The incident took place at the Tambar field in the Norwegian North Sea, where the rig was doing a job for Aker BP.
Aker BP said on Friday that the worker who fell from the rig during maintenance work had passed away.
The second crew member’s condition is “not critical”.
