Helicopter Crash Victim Confirmed as Tenaris employee

Local authorities in Angola have confirmed that one of the victims from Monday's helicopter crash was an employee of Tenaris, a supplier of tubes and related services to the oil and gas industry.

José Capita was a field service specialist who started working for Tenaris in 2010. The 38-year-old Angolan citizen is survived by his wife and three children.

The Bell 430 helicopter departed the Malongo Terminal in Angola’s Cabinda province but did not reach its destination at the Chevron operated Tombua-Landana offshore facility. “The helicopter crashed in bad weather en route to a Chevron platform,” Captain Armando Nzawisa of the Angolan Armed Forces told AFP, a Nigerian news outlet. The Angolan Armed Forces are conducting the rescue operation for the crash.
