Chilling   26 comments

When I get back from a Rig move, I normally say how well it went and how hard I worked 😉 but on this occasion I can’t do either, it was one of those, ‘quick get out there as soon as you can jobs’ which isn’t uncommon in this line of work. For some of us only a couple of hours notice and we were on our way, the three of us met up at Heathrow terminal five and after some breakfast we were on a plane to Bergen in Norway. An hour long taxi ride through tunnels and over a bridge we arrived at the Rig, once dressed in full PPE we climbed the 87 steps up the leg, luckily our bags were craned up, once we got our breath back and were assigned our cabins we went to mob our equipment to find out it was all ready to go, all we did was turn it on and do all our checks, what a result!

The time for the move to start came and went several times in the next week until we were told it wasn’t going to happen and we could all go home, a bit disappointed but if you are going to spend a week chilling on a Rig, you can’t beat Norway. I even managed to get a few photos out of the window of the taxi on the way back to the airport.

Have a great weekend.
