Flights have been temporarily suspended to one of the UK’s largest offshore gas fields after a suspected coronavirus case at an adjacent drilling rig.
Maersk Drilling has quarantined four workers on board its Maersk Highlander vessel, which is connected to the Total-operated Culzean field.
Babcock Offshore has suspended flights to the field for the time being.
Maersk Drilling said said a “third-party employee” on board has exhibited symptoms of COVID-19 and has been isolated, along with three others who have been in close contact with him.
All four are now being assessed from medical staff on the rig.
