Oil & Gas Journal: Investigation begins into cause of North Sea platform fire

Offshore staff
(UK, North Sea) – An investigation has been launched into the cause of a blaze that led to nearly 130 oil workers being airlifted from a North Sea platform. An electrical fire on Shell's Tern installation, 105 miles northeast of the Shetland Islands, caused the evacuation of 128 non-essential personnel last Thursday.
A team of investigators from the UK Health and Safety Executive are on the platform looking into the fire, and Shell has also launched its own internal investigation.
Shell said no one was hurt and all personnel have been accounted for.
