well stimulation vessel Skandi Fjord in Esbjerg the
other day - snapped by Udo Herkenrath. There are now
more of these ships about, and it can be a bit of a
dream job for the crews. Frac jobs (Well
stimulation) only take place occasionally so
mostly they lie about in port waiting for the work.
Then the actual job only takes two or three days and
they are then sent back into their base port. Surely
this must be better than trogging across the Pacific
for three weeks with a day at an offshore loading
berth at the end. The downside is the two or three
days in close proximity to an offshore installation.
