Hello~quick question

Unread postby P A U L » Fri 21 Mar 2014, 18:36:03

hi fellas,

just had a quick question. most of my work takes place in the gulf of mexico and so i have a RigPass and HUET to go offshore. i may be going offshore in the north sea and i was wondering if HUET/RigPass is accepted on the boats out there. i've heard that BOSIET is all i need, but wanted confirmation from people that actually work in the north sea.

thanks!

Paul - I don't believe you'll need HUET working in the N Sea since you have zero chance of surviving a chopper crash out there. LOL. Just a bit of dark humor from one hand to another folks. I don't know the answer but good luck amigo and watch out for those Scottish women. Heard they are tougher than our S La cher's.

If you don't get an answer here drop an email to Ralph Steen with Stag in the UK. I worked thru them when I did my offshore Africa hitches. He's at ralph.steen@stag-geological.com. Tell him BJ in Houston says hi.

If that doesn't work you can try cruisers forum dot com. There are a few oil rig guys there and an international crowd.

Good luck.

Paul - Are you working contract thru someone? Geo or eng? I was very pleased the way Stag handled my contracts in Africa. Good luck and watch out for those tail rotors, amigo.

got a response from Steen. confirmed BOSIET is required in the UK. thanks rockman!

i am a contractor, but neither geo or eng really. just visual inspections, and all my work takes place on boats. only been on a rig once to be basket carried to a boat :p that was fun.


thanks for the input also newfie!

Paul - Working boats in the N Sea...you're a tough one for sure. Or about to get real tough. LOL. A calm day in the NS can be worse than a rough day in the GOM...so I've heard.
