Flight Aborted at Rig Offshore Newfoundland

A flight transporting offshore workers from the rig Henry Goodrich to St. John's was aborted Monday as it experienced "higher than normal vibration," according to Suncor officials who notified the Canada-Newfoundland and Labrador Offshore Petroleum Board (C-NLOPB).
The Sikorsky S-92 helicopter was only 150 meters off the ground before the flight was aborted and the chopper was "returned to the installation," C-NLOPB reported. Seventeen passengers and two pilots were on the flight. There were no reported injuries.
Two flight engineers were hoisted to the Henry Goodrich to assess the data from the aircraft. The chopper was cleared and returned to the Cougar Base at approximately 10:30 p.m. Monday.
The semisub Henry Goodrich is currently a drilling a well for Suncor located on the Grand Banks, approximately 350 kilometers east of St. John's.
