One of the hottest platforms out there. The one and only drilling production platforms offshore South Africa.

Quite a nice little video about the FA Platform, made by The Times reporter. Worth a look.

Seems like a nice and cool working and holiday while you work at the same time. How many workers are there estimation per shift?

I worked on the FA for 15 years - it was like a five star hotel then - can still remember Gideon, Gary Purcocks, Jannie Nel, Randy Makka (A good bunch to work, and my best off-shore years was spent there )

Hello Mel,
Yes it was good days, the work was hard but the fishing was good. The Technicians were top class. I miss that good old days.
