This is the Wellservicer, now a veteran of the North
Sea offshore maintenance operations. It was built as
long ago as 1989 in Sunderland. It is now operated
by Technip, but was previously the CSO Wellservicer,
and before that the Stena Wellservicer. It is
alongside in Invergordon, one of the Northernmost
ports on the UK mainland. The tanks in the
background used to hold fuel for the grand fleet. In
1962 I was an apprentice on a ship that took it all
away to Rotterdam.
Please note the
publication of my latest book "RigMoves" below.
It is about moving rigs - but not as we know them.
It has been well received so far. Click on the cover
for further details. There are now none left to give
away, but buy one! It only costs £5.75 or equivalent
post free to anywhere in the world.
