I did a few trips on the ZP, I actually enjoyed being there, I have been on worse in the UK.

Worked on here for 2 years, 1997-99 one of the best jobs I was on, took a year to install the pipe work & steel work only to be told that it wasn't to be used, took the next year too take it all back out.

I worked on board for 3 1/2 years as Scaffolding Supervisor, enjoyed every day, great bunch of Lads from India, Nepal, pakistan, bangeldash, all good Scaffs.

I worked there for only 18 days during an emergency shut down. $500.00/day, no taxes, and all expences paid, loved every bit of it. All good people, good cooks, and good food...

Since 2001 until 2008 - (s)crappy steel but billiant people with lovely family attitude.
From perspective of few other jobs - despite much better terms of employment now, I still appreciate The Old Lady for the real team-spirit onboard.

Worked on here Dec 2001-2004, transferred after doing 1 year on shiny new Jade platform, what a contrast. Biggest shitheap I ever worked on but some of the best people. It was a few years of my life I'll never forget and TOMASZ ZOLKOS, I remember you Tom, I hope life is treating you well!

Still working here since 2006, and still enjoying every day with my second family on board, hey TOMAS we miss you.

I miss the old lady. Although we sure did blast and paint a lot and she looked pretty good when I left in Apr 2011. I remember both Juan and Tomasz

It is my second home, I really enjoy working here with this lovely family.

I have one small question. Is it a separate flare boom left to ZP? And how is it moored? –źdvance thanks

Added by Alex Ter on 04 September 2015.
Yes 2 flares 1 onboard sticking out & the other is maybe 100 meters away. It sits on the seabed on its own structure

Sailed on the ship for four years when it was the the Mobil Swift, then rejoined at the shipyard in Galveston to sail it out to the Bahamas as the Mobil rep.

Worked on board from 99 until 01 replacing cargo pumps and pipe work.Was really sorry to have left and sent to another contract. Would go back tomorrow.

I remember well! Myself and 3 other WASP divers along with 14 others from Oceaneering were there to hook up the flow lines and control umbilicals to get 'first oil'. 1996 I believe.
