Stocks including fresh water are said to be running out on a North Sea platform hit by strike action.

Oil major Shell said stocks are “running low” as a result of a supply vessel being unable to offload due to the bad weather over the weekend.

However, workers have attributed the low stocks on the Gannet platform to the current industrial action.

Some have claimed laundry services have been shut since the weekend and they have been told to re-use towels and take shorter showers and re-wear clothes due to depleted water levels. read more

Oil major Shell has completed improvement notices from the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) after an incident led to the loss of containment of more than 800kg of gasoline.

The North Sea operator was hit with a notice which said it had “failed to demonstrate” that it had established a “safe operating pressure” for the loading of gasoline to ships.

The notice at the time added: “Despite evidence of repeated swivel joint seal failures on loading arms at Breafoot Bay and in particular the failure of the middle seal of the triple swivel joint on loading arm 3 during single pump loading on 21st April 2016, which led to the loss of containment of 825kg of gasoline.” read more
