Thanks guys!

Intercepter: they don't have security on drilling or production facility's in the gulf of Mexico to my knowledge. We have to show our worthless TWIC's at the gate of most of the docks in Fourchon, but that's about it.

I took a couple today while I was on top of the wheelhouse taking down our bravo flag, post fueling. This is starting looking north swinging west until I am looking south from the back corner of the haliburton slip here in fourchon.








The slip is packed today, thank god they have started work on the northern expansion slip C.

I got a few of the heavy lift crane in Port Arthur on my phone. I'll post them up when I get to the dock later. Don't get mad but mine is bigger and Grey Wolf's is way bigger than both of ours combined.

Edit- there we go, a dual pontoon floating crane with 10,000 ton capacity.

Tug, that friggen thing looks like a spaceship at night in the field. Passed it one night and changed course to get a closer look. That would be a pretty awesome DPO job in my opinion. Versabar has some cool stuff, I actually did a post about them on my blog at one point.

I saw them doing a pick of the safety fairway heading in to Sabine a few months ago. It's an impressive piece of equipment. I saw the Dolores Chouest yesterday off of the Outer Banks.

Very cool pictures fellas, though a word of caution. Watch your backdrop and be careful where you are shooting.

I'm crew on the boat, and have their silly TWIC as well as other government issued docs. The only visit I would be worried about is if I took pictures of environmental laws being broken, and it wouldn't be the fed's kicking in my door. The lack of actual security in the field is kind of funny, small boats come and fish around the floating rigs/platforms as well as the bottom mounted ones all of the time, and there isn't an armed security asset for miles. Trinidad and Brasil as well from what I hear is quite different.

That being said I don't take pictures of bridges ever.......heard plenty of small boat horror stories with that one.

I'm from Louisiana as well and grew up seeing all of that equipment. Most of my family's in the oil industry so I tend to take for granted the scale of some of this stuff. The big rigs are definitely impressive.
