I was on here in 2004 just before GSF got out of the platform market, and we all ended up with Odfjell Drilling. The drill crews from the Tartan got split up then and ended up all over the world in some cases. I remember 137 steps from smoking T-shack to pipe deck!!

The construction of this was my first offshore job...working for AOC. 1000 guys split over two shifts and two flotels. A great job. DB 102 came out for the module lifts..awsome bit of kit. It is when safety really started offshore. I now work in Renewables as an HSEQ Manager and will never forget those days carrying 250 x 40 kilo pipe clamps down 5 levels of stairs as a labourer. I obviously would not be able to allow that nowadays...let alone do it!
