I worked for James Scot for many years. Did the hookup and then worked on Murch maintenance from late 1990 until mid 1996 for Scots and then for a new company at platform instigation when Scots lost the contract for a further 2 years. Mistake!! Should have left with Scots as the job was never the same. Best rig to work on in the North Sea when Conoco had it. One day we went for dinner working for Conoco at 12.00 and returned to work at 13.00 working for Oryx!! That was in 1996, cant remember the exact day.
