Travel offshore information

  • Information concerning the coronavirus situation for those traveling offshore

    If the national authorities operate with stricter guidelines than Repsol Norge, then these guidelines will also apply to Repsol Norge's suppliers and operations. All suppliers are asked to follow the current national and / or local guidelines. For Norway, follow the advice from Folkehelseinstituttet (National Institute of Public Health) and Regjeringen (The government).

If any of the following information apply to you, do not travel offshore:

  1. If you have symptoms of respiratory illness (such as fever, runny nose, sore throat, coughing or shortness of breath), or other symptoms (such as fever, abdominal pain, diarrhoea, reduced sense of taste and smell, muscle pain or generally feeling of illness ), even if the symptoms are mild you should not travel offshore until you are fully recovered and symptom-free for 24 hours.
  2. If you have been diagnosed or suspect that you have Covid-19, you cannot travel offshore until you are fully recovered and been symptom-free for at least seven days.
  3. If you have been in contact with Covid-19 sick patients (confirmed / probable or suspected). Even if you are completely symptom-free, you cannot travel offshore until after 10 days has passed after such contact.
  4. If you have been outside of Norway during the past 10 days, you must contact your employer as soon as possible to clarify any exceptions to quarantine regulations.

If any of these conditions apply to you, you must contact your nearest manager before travelling to the heliport. In addition, contact Repsol Norge company health service on +47 489 90 769 or post@mediteam.no before traveling to heliport. The phone line is open on weekdays between 09:00 – 15:00 and if needed the service will be available also in evenings and weekends. Repsol Norge company health service will be able to give advice both before departure and during the quarantine period, if necessary.

Repsol Norge occupational health service will contact all travellers by phone five to seven days before scheduled departure. 

Perform hand hygiene frequently and practice good respiratory hygiene. Covering coughs and sneezes and keeping hands clean helps prevent the spread of Covid-19.

Departure to Gyda

Repsol Norge expects that personnel going offshore to Gyda to be updated on current travel advices and how they generally should respond to departure offshore.

Travelers from Norway and "yellow countries" to Gyda must complete Covid-19 testing. The actual testing takes place at Clarion Air hotel at Sola, address: Utsolaarmen 16, 4055 Sola.

It is your own responsibility to book a timeslot for Covid-19 testing here:

Please note: The latest possible time to complete the test is three hours before leaving the heliport. If there is no availability the same day, the appointment must be booked earlier / the day before.

Employees entry quarantine

Employees traveling from "red" countries in the Schengen / EEA area (including UK) to work in Norway may have their quarantine periods shortened if they can present two negative Covid-19 PCR tests taken after arrival in Norway (the second test cannot be taken earlier than 48 hours after the first, and no earlier than the fifth day after arrival). This applies to both Repsol personnel and contractors. The tests are performed by health personnel from our company health service with support from Mediteam. Contact Mediteam on +47 489 90 769 or post@mediteam.no to arrange a time for testing. The tests are carried out in Mediteam's premises at the address: Sjøveien 34, 4315 Sandnes.

After completing the first test, personnel must enter quarantine upon arrival at Repsol Norges´s departure hotel.
