Well two of our engineers passed their safety training today after a long course. They are now licenced to go on oil rigs and make the 2 hour helicopter flight out to the oil rigs. Know how to use a life vest, survival suit, life boat, jump 200 feet from a rig into the water, etc.
SCADA (System Control And Data Aquisiton) systems are great – you can see what the make up of your oil is and how it is flowing the second it pops out. But someone has to go and set it all up. I’m just glad that it is not me… then again with a broken ankle I am not much good anyhow.
