Just a pic of where I am at the moment. Course you wouldn't be able to see us now.....we are still in fog and have been since Sunday morning.


Platform Hermosa:


This is Harvest(another one I work at):


You can see Vandenberg AFB in the background. They shoot satellites into space form those pads.

I also do Hidalgo, but couldn't find a good pic

The last is Irene:


On land I take care of Lompoc Oil and Gas Plant(lots of deer, quail and lions in the surrounding oil field)


and lastly, Gaviota gas plant.


There are no good pics of Gaviota, but it is the most beautiful plant I have ever been to. It is also the most protested plant in tUSA.

Good pics!  Do they fly you in on a copter or do you go in on a boat?

We fly on Sikorsky S-76's



Every now and then we fly in Bell 407's(it has to be clear weather for that)

Dad use4d to want me to work on an oil rig when I was younger.  It would have been a great job and I was used to the confined quarters and working around pipes and dangerous equipment already.  But I had been away from home for so long and wanted to stay home.  Plus the day I got off that jet when I came home, I vowed never to fly again.  Smile

It ain't the life I would want for my son. Missed his first steps, his first words....many milestones. It ain't for everyone.
