S92 helicopter pressure refuelling incident

Oil and Gas UK (OGUK) has circulated a report of a near-miss incident involving refuelling of helicopters. The incident occurred when the fuel supply to the aircraft was interrupted and introduced fuel/air mix delivery to the aircraft, which caused the tank vent valves to close and build-up of pressure causing the sponson to rupture.
