Thanks, yes it was a promotion, although the same job as I was already doing, the scale of the role increased as I switched sites. I didn't expect it to be classed as a promotion, so was surprised when a letter dropped in from HR bearing gifts! Looking forward to this months payslip, let's just put it that way!
As for the role, just think of it as the captain of a ship, but for a fixed oil platform.
I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Oil rigs on fire off the shoulder of Al-Khalij. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Qatar Arch Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain.

Congrats Dave ! Captain of a ship that is not moving is much less dangerous, that must really be a piece of cake.
*Oil ? What oil ? ...Flammable ? In ... in huge quantities ? Like ... really huge ? Mmmhh ... where is that ship again ?*
