UK platform operator, Centrica, has taken 16 of its staff off its Rough 47/3B platform in the North Sea after a Covid-19 case.

The company said the worker tested positive for coronavirus on August 6th and that an additional 15 workers were being flown ashore as a precaution.

Centrica said that all the workers tested negative using a lateral flow test prior to arriving at the platform.

Rough 47/3B has been off-line for scheduled maintenance since April and there was therefore no unplanned interruption to oil production.
