    During the course of tests in line with industry standards on 2nd May 2020 in the international Port of Rostock, the offshore heavy lift crane HLC 295000 was severely damaged following an accident.
    Crane hook "parted" at 2,600 ton, was rated for 5,000 ton.

    Elite Drilling E-08 Rig

    Here’s a pic from work tonight. I survived 2 weeks quarantine in remote rubber farm resort just South of Udon and now sitting here on top of a nearby mountain/national park.

    It has taking us 12 days to rig up for this job and safe to say everyone has lost a bit of weight. It’s been bloody hot up here and it was a relief to come into night shift on Monday.
    Lang may yer lum reek...

    A few pics from this job:

    First task was to build and then erect our flare stack. This beauty stands 140ft tall, 20ft more than standard, which was demanded by the local villagers and agreed by us. They came and checked.

    Goes without saying, but this is where we flare the nitrogen and gas during our drilling operations. There is a main line to the flare and 2 relief lines in case of over-pressurisation and a lifted PRV will divert pressure to flare. There is also a propane line to keep a pilot flame lit at all times if required. Also an electronic igniter and an emergency fire bucket that can be pulled up in case of failure.

    Once vertical by crane lift we fix tension on 6 cables at 3 points to anchor blocks to keep it upright. Then go up in the man basket and unhook the crane slings.
