Thick fog hits North Sea traffic
All helicopter flights from Stavanger Airport Sola to North Sea offshore installations are delayed because of thick fog on Tuesday morning.
In the early morning hours just one departure, the HKS150 07:30 to Sleipner A, left the airport. This was delayed by over 30 minutes.
At 13.30pm, there were still delays and only one more flight had managed to leave the Heliport. This flight was heading to the Jotun field.
“Traffic to Ekofisk is delayed until further notice due to fog, but all personnel are asked to report for flights as normal,” ConocoPhillips writes.
Officials take action against undeclared work in the service industry. They require time-sheets and threaten fines.
The pioneer divers now start their struggle to increase the 67,000 kroner amount the state has guaranteed. Labour Minister Robert Eriksson cannot promise the amount will be raised.
