Bad weather this winter has caused flight cancellations that could leave hundreds of workers left offshore over Christmas.

French oil giant TotalEnergies has confirmed that around 300 workers are due home from its platforms in the Danish sector, but bad weather has left workers unable to depart.

It’s understood crews on the Tyra development off Denmark, including some Scottish workers, are affected.

But the firm has pledged to “do our utmost to bring all stranded people back before Christmas”.

Three boats have also been sourced by the company “which can dock close to the platforms and establish a safe footbridge if the wave height is not too great.”

The first boat left Danish docks at the weekend with more voyages planned over the coming week.

TotalEnergies has said that it is in “close dialogue” with Offshore Helicopter Services Denmark as it intends to keep its staff up to date with any developments.

To counteract the cancelled helicopter flights, the firm has reported that it is in contact with another helicopter supplier so that we can increase the number of flights when the weather permits.

The French oil major has said that the blame for the cancelled helicopters lies with something called “triggered lighting”.

This meteorological phenomenon is caused by polar air passing over a warmer sea surface. So far this has led to the cancellation of “52 flights in November and December 2022.”

The firm says that compared to the same period in 2021 there were zero cancellations of helicopters as a result of this arctic winds fuelled issue.«
