Glasgow Evening Times: THE partner of a man killed on a North Sea oil platform is suing for £800,000.

THE partner of a man killed on a North Sea oil platform is suing for £800,000.

 

Keith Moncrieff, 45, and Sean McCue, 22, died after being overcome with gas while working on Shell's Brent Bravo installation in September 2003.

 

Mr Moncrieff's partner, Jacqueline Ogilvie, of Dundee, has launched an action seeking damages from Shell, which owns the installation, and Wood Group, which employed Mr Moncrieff as a technician.

 

The case is being registered at the Court of Session in Edinburgh.

 

Ms Ogilvie, 49, had accused Shell of “negligent actings” that led to financial losses for her and her two daughters following the accident.

 

Mr Moncrieff and Mr McCue, of Kennoway, Fife, were suffocated by a huge release of hydrocarbon gas which leaked from a broken valve.

In 2005, Shell was fined £900,000 after admitting three health and safety breaches.
