Not MGB leak but Hydraulic leak.

See below

A North Sea helicopter travelling from Sola airport near Stavanger out to the Ekofisk accommodation installation in the Norwegian sector had to make an emergency landing on the Tor platform after a technical problem.

 

Offshore247.com's sister site Offshore.no reported that the helicopter, a Sikorsky S92a aircraft operated by Norske Helikopter – now renamed Bristows Norway AS, was involved in the incident yesterday.

 

“There was a minor leak in a hydraulic system and the pilot chose to land on the nearest platform,” a Bristows Norway source told Offshore.no. She said technicians had been sent out to the Tor platform and the problem was expected to be resolved last night.

 

Norske Helikopter was renamed Bristows Norway AS from 1 April, after Bristows increased its stake in Norske Helikopter from 49% to 100%.
