Namasti

global have work again there this year. word is they will be using Sonsub singapore so expect lower rates.

they are kicking off jan 2008.

Does anybody know why global aren't using there regular rov contactor?

if you go, go down to churchgate area. Some great electronics books for sale at dirt cheap prices.Heaps of other good technical books available too. All by indian authors but all very good. Try the 12 year old "old monk rum" while you are there as well and the kingfisher beer but keep away from the cages. That is scrapping the bottom of the barrel for a run ashore even for the hardest of offshore types.

it's all wrong about deli bellie too. It's only pommies who get that.
The locals use so many natural spices in the curries that it has an antibiotic effect . I've been there numerous times eaten all the food offshore and at indoor restaurants (not road side stalls, where dust and germs can settle on the food). Never had the trots once. Mind you the old monk rum probably had it's curative [buildings] too.

ok then good luck and get your asss up there hami hami

Have to agree LB,

When we left the barge, it took us 8 hours to get along side waiting for the agent to show up, when we did get in we sat on a coach by the jetty for 6 hours waiting for the agent to pay the necessary "fee's" to allow us to move to customs 150 yards away. Twisted Evil

Then all 22 of us on the coach had to open ALL bags in the customs hall while the robbing twats searched to see what they wanted. (Soap and shampoo mainly) After the payment of more Fee's by the agent when where on our way.

Time from leaving the barge to arriving in the hotel 15 hours Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation

Thats all I have to say about that Shocked

Be good

HI there,

Can anyone tell me which companies are working in lovely India.

Thanks


technip are sending the constructor and the skandi achiever down there to start next month. I'm sure you will find work on the constructor if you want it as nobody likes it there, unless your favourite word is 'yes' and you like having a social inadequate as your boss.

ok i have to agree getting in and out from the dock can be a hassle but if you have a good ageant he will have paid the proper bribes and you won't even have to get off the bus.

if your expecting the hassle it doesn't seem so bad, That's where the bottle of old monk and the mp3 player help.

but there is some good food and fun to be had on the run ashore. the thing i like about the place is this. No matter how seedy the places you end up in, you never feel like you are in any danger. That's because if there are 2 or 3 of you just having a good run ashore, you aren't in any danger. Probably the worst that can happen is to get your pocket picked if you are careless.

compared to angola, nigeria or sakhalin i'd pick mumbai anytime. Of couse it's not the best place around but it's what you make of it. If you still have a little sense of adventure you can create one of those runs ashore that become legends .

i forgot to mention the trip to chaw bazaar (thieves market). There is old machinery for sale there that can keep you amused all day. ( old, old british churchill lathes, milling machines, and all sorts of stuff )you can still pick up a brass sextant for your bar pretty cheap as well

else where you can buy good carpets that can become investments. they will ship them to your home. it's all legit and backed up by a govt dept.

some years back you could also buy an enfield motorbike brand new, exactly like they were in the 50.s. That was crated and shipped to your door with parts and a spare engine. very cheap

oh well i guess it's not for everybody, maybe i've just gone tropp

re: indian visas's

i heard that an Indian work visa can now only be issued by the indian embassy or consulate in your home country.

This is obviously going to create problems ( for the companies and workers both) for those who may reside in countries such as pourtugal, dubai, thailand, singapore etc (and are not nationals of those countries or holding employment passes for those counries)

Does anybody know if this is correct and if there is any way around it. i spose you could courier your passport back to your home country but this is fraut with danger if you are only on a tourist chop in the country you are living or holidaying in (like what happens if it gets held up and your tourist visa expires while its away?)

i spose this is why some guys have 2 passports but a second passport isn't cheap for most countries and i don't know if all countries allow this


any suggestions anyone ?????????????/

Hallin Marine are working down there for the next seven or eight months for Allseas on the same or similar parts of the same project as Fugro.

From what I can gather there are at least two of the Allseas lay barges down there at the moment along with the Highland Fortress and the Highland Rover each with two ROV systems which are crewed up with ten man teams for Hallin.


As for flight times I think it really depends on where you are crew changing. as to how long it takes to get there. I am basically travelling for about 24 hours to get down there but that is three flights.

Hallin are also always on the look out for experienced guys give them a call day rates are in line with most companies if not better and they are a decent enough crowd to work for.
