Oil and Gas Industry Annual Service of Remembrance 4th Nov
The UK Oil and Gas Industry held its annual service of remembrance in the Kirk of St Nicholas, Union St, Aberdeen on Saturday, 4th November at 1100. This service allowed the industry to gather to remember those who had died during the previous 12 months and also through the years. A candle was lit for each of those who died in the last year and a minute’s silence was observed allowing family, friends and colleagues to remember. This year an additinal two names were added to Book to commemorate two men who had died on the Brent Delta a number of years ago. Records detailing the names of those who died offshore prior to 2013 do not exist. The fact that these names were missing from the Book of Remebrance came to light earlier this year when Shell invited families to visit the de-commissioned Delta. If you knew someone who died offshore before 2013 please make contact and we will check whether their name is recorded in the book.
