Investigation after alleged ‘near-miss’ on North Sea platform

An investigation is underway by Talisman Sinopec over an alleged dropped object on the Claymore platform in the North Sea. It is understood a cable snapped as a 22-tonne blowout preventer was being lifted late last week in what has been described as a "near-miss". Production was temporarily shut down as a temporary measure on the Claymore platform, which is 100 miles north east of Aberdeen, following the incident.
