Expro Mourns Loss of Stuart Wood in North Sea Helicopter Incident
It is with the greatest regret that Expro announces that one of our employees, Stuart Wood, has been confirmed as having been on board the helicopter which crashed in the North Sea on Wednesday.
The helicopter was taking crew back to Aberdeen from the BP Miller platform and ditched approximately 14 miles off the North-East of Scotland coast.
Stuart, 27, was a cased-hole field engineer with Expro and had worked with the company since 2002 after joining as a trainee technician. Stuart had worked offshore since 2004.
Expro has been liaising with Stuart's family members and the relevant authorities since being notified of the incident, and we extend our deepest sympathies to Stuart's family, friends and colleagues at this sad time.
Alan Quirke, Expro's UK manager, said, "Stuart started with Expro when he was only 20 years old and worked his way through the ranks to become a talented, enthusiastic and popular member of our cased hole logging department.
"Stuart made an impression with all who met him and was eager to continue his career at Expro. He will be sadly missed by us all."
Expro Chief Executive Officer Graeme Coutts said, "Everyone at Expro is deeply saddened by this tragic event and the loss of Stuart, who was a well-liked member of our team who had a promising career ahead of him."
