Representatives of the oil industry have paid tribute to the 16 people who died in the Super Puma helicopter disaster 10 years ago.
Deirdre Michie, Oil and Gas UK’s chief executive, said the 10th anniversary was a “stark reminder” about safety operations in the North Sea.
She was due to attend the memorial service taking place at Johnston Gardens today.
She was expected to lay a wreath on behalf of the industry to mark a decade since the disaster on April 1 2009 off the coast of Peterhead.
Ms Michie said: “Our thoughts remain with the families, friends and colleagues who lost loved ones that day and we will never forget them.
“This anniversary serves as a stark reminder that we can never be complacent about safe operations.
“The safety of our people has to be at the heart of all that we do, day in and day out, 24/7.”
