“Maersk Viking” Heading to GOM: Take a Virtual Tour of the Rig

“Maersk Viking” Heading to GOM: Take a Virtual Tour of the Rig – Oilpro.

Thanks to Mr Jeff Reed for posting this to Oilpro! That’s where I saw it posted. It’s a pretty neat video of the new drillship Maersk Viking.

I’ve been spending a lot of time (as mate/DPO) on very similar ships in the last couple of years. The drillships Pacific Santa Ana, DS-5 and DS-3 are all a lot like this one.

This one will be coming to the Gulf of Mexico soon. I keep trying to find a position on something working somewhere other than the GOM, but it seems all the work is here. I guess I’ll be stuck here til things change and there’s a boom somewhere else in the world.

You can take the virtual tour and get an idea of where I’ve been spending a lot of my time lately.
