New Delhi, June 28, 2022: A helicopter carrying seven passengers and two pilots made an emergency landing in Arabian Sea near ONGC rig Sagar Kiran in Mumbai High.

Five people have been rescued so far.



Rescue operations are under way, the Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Limited (ONGC) said in a tweet.


The helicopter, which had six ONGC personnel onboard, and one belonging to a contractor working for the company, was forced to land using the floaters that are attached to such coppers that carry personnel and material from shore to offshore installations.

The circumstances that led to the emergency landing were not immediately clear. Other details too were awaited.

ONGC has several rigs and installations in the Arabia Sea that are used to produce oil and gas from reservoirs lying below the seabed.
