StatoilHydro reportedly suspended helicopter flights to some of its main fields in the North Sea due to Russian Navy exercises in nearby international waters, Reuters reported.
According to the reports, the disruptions will not affect production levels at the fields, which include the Troll field.
According the report, a Russian aircraft carrier and two accompanying vessels were carrying out exercises near the heart of Norway's offshore oil and gas sector in the North Sea.
