THE BOURBON DOLPHIN
Together with everyone
else connected with the offshore industry, we extend our condolences to the
families of those who were lost when the Bourbon Dolphin capsized, and to
the survivors who lost their shipmates.
It has taken many of us
who are connected only distantly with the event, some days to get over the
shock, and we understand that an enquiry is about to take place, probably
initiated by a Norwegian Government Marine Department.
We expect that in time we
may be able to report on the enquiry which we hope will result in a
reduction in the risk of this event occurring ever again.
Regular visitors to this
site will know that in this column we try to take a slightly light-hearted
view of events in the industry, which would seem to us to be inappropriate
at this time, so as a mark of respect we will finish with a picture of the
Bourbon Dolphin in happier times.
