Montrose Alpha platform down-manned due to blocked drain

Repsol Sinopec Resources UK confirmed today that the Montrose Alpha platform will be partially down-manned due to a blocked drain.

RSRUK said the blockage had resulted in a “reduction in facilities available to crew”.

A spokeswoman for RSRUK said: “To ensure crew welfare is maintained, we have made the decision to instigate a partial down-manning until the issue is resolved.”
