Worked for Aker on the legs and deck in Stavanger when we was home from Ekofisk on our 14 days off. We did good money that time. This time is gone, but a lot of memories is still there. It was in 1977.

Worked in the Brent Field mid 80, s through to mid 90, s I remember that view from the Helideck. Looks like a lot of the guys from that time live in other parts of the world.
