A worker died on board one of the drillships operated by Brazil’s oil and gas producer Petrobras.

The accident occurred on Petrobras America’s drillship Petrobras 10000 in the Gulf of Mexico on December 2.

As informed, medical assistance was provided immediately to the man but he died.

No other details have been disclosed except that the man was an employee of the company Spencer Ogden.
