I was onboard at the time of the bomb hoax. It was a very long day and we had more than 500 personnel onboard at the time, we spent more than 4 hours at the lifeboats while waiting to be evacuated. I think they managed to get 140 personnel off the rig before the evacuation was brought to a stop as the threat was decreased. The drill was a well exercised and organised evacuation just in case the real thing happened.

Hello every one onboard. I was working on that rig for three years & we stopped beginning September 2010. I'd like to be on board again.
