Cost cutting on flights/travel is normal practice as we know. If they can get you out to a job well fatigued and straight on shift then job done. After all you do get well paid for the inconvenience...ha ha. No regard for the safety aspect either, aslong as you have hard hat, coveralls and speks on when you injure yourself or your collegue no worries.

I have watched homeward bound Rov guys get picked up and taken straight to the AP after shift, while other depts have gone to hotels. I remember a guy on a job with me years ago killed in a crash due to driving home fatigued....Strange how we are treated.
I wonder if it's because we are toothless in regards to bargaining power??? No it can't be!

Most crew changes are paid for by the oil companies, and this is written into the majority of contracts, so why do companies cream off this aswell and cut the rate for travel days.

It's all obvious guys!!!



Yes, Oceaneering call it 'mobilisation fee'... the client pays for the round.trip and accommodation; so what is the big deal after all with the booking / routing of flights Question

It's on the client and not on the agencies or 3rd party Exclamation

I believe the mob fee is a lump sum cost to the client so if the ROV company can get you home for less they pocket the difference.

It's not personal, it's just business. You decide who you want to do business with.
Veni, Vidi, Velcro! (I came, I saw, I stuck around!)

What about when the client specifically pays for business class seats due to the length of the flight but the office books economy and pockets the difference... Happened to me once and the orifice got found out by the client.. was a sight to behold.. Smile

So it is true then! Safety does play second fiddle to cost/profit as far as business ethics go.... How stupid of me to think otherwise.

Don't forget your PPE guys!

Oceaneering International, Inc. (NYSE:OII) today reported record first quarter earnings for the period ended March 31, 2009.

On revenue of $435 million, Oceaneering generated net income of $44.3 million, or $0.80 per share.

During the corresponding period in 2008, Oceaneering reported revenue of $436 million and net income of $41.3 million, or $0.73 per share as restated.


Year-over-year, quarterly earnings increased due to growth in Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROV) and Subsea Projects operating profits.


Sooooooo...........

Pay cut due to the economic downturn. Why?
