As some of you may recall I posted just before Christmas that I was moving platforms after being in the first field for 21 years.

Well, I arrived on my new platform on Wednesday, although we were a couple of hours late due to weather. Since arriving the weather has been steadily getting worse and we have had no flying on thursday or friday and looking very unlikely for today and flights currently on hold.

The wind has just been a constant 65 Knots (74mph), gusting to 75 Knots (86 MPH) and the sea state is a mean 7metres with peak waves hitting 15m. The forecast is the same through to Monday at the earliest. I hope this isn't a sign for the future, but have a feeling that regular delays maybe on the horizon!

On the place itself, I can't get over the size of the accommodation module, compared to the last 5 platforms I have worked on, this place puts them to shame! Just need to try and get outside to have a proper look around the process, but the thought of battling the winds to try and look at stuff is just a waste of time.

I do like my new office, although, no window in this one Frown | :( but that is compensated by having a well stocked fridge with pop and chocolate and the stairs are a killer so that helps to work it off again!

Here is a couple photo's off the net of the place:
