A Eurocopter EC225, operated by CHC for Statoil from the Deepsea Bergen drilling rig to Kristiansund, made a controlled emergency landing at another Norwegian sea platform, Åsgard B, on January 12. The pilots had been alerted to a pressure loss in the left hydraulic system. The helicopter remained in motion after landing due to the lack of wheel braking power but was stabilized. The 19 passengers evacuated through the emergency exit.
