MB Century Supporting Family and Staff

MB Century is focusing on supporting family members and colleagues of MB Century employee Nicholas Teague following his death, over the weekend, on the onshore drilling rig the company is contracted to operate, MB Century Chief Executive Marcel Manders said today.

“We are a tight-knit company and we are working with Nick’s family to ensure they get all the support they could need in such a difficult time. The family has informed us that Nick passed away due to natural causes.”

“We are also ensuring all our staff members continue to have access to support systems such as counseling.”

“We continue to work with the authorities while they conduct their investigations. In the meantime, our priority is ensuring that we can support Nick’s family throughout this time,” Mr Manders said.
