Oil & Gas UK’s response to FAI conclusion:

Robert Paterson, Oil & Gas UK health, safety and employment issues director, said:

“Today’s Fatal Accident Inquiry (FAI) conclusion into the 2009 helicopter crash provides us with a powerful reminder of the paramount importance of following procedures, and the need for effective communication.

Since the publication of the Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) report in 2011, Bond and Eurocopter have worked constructively to put measures in place to improve communication, monitoring and maintenance.

The entire oil and gas community has been touched by this tragedy, and our thoughts remain with the families, relatives and colleagues of those directly affected.


Oil & Gas UK is the leading representative organisation for the UK offshore oil and gas industry. Its growing membership, which comprises oil and gas producers and contractor companies, now numbers more than 400.
