Somebody had an eye for good design nearly 50 years ago, no CAD/CAM around in those days producing today's floating box like vessels, the Plant behind in the first picture is "Aromatics One", in one of those periods I needed to be on home turf my Agent got me a job commissioning the steam plant for an American company called "Procon" whose own American Engineer had to be sent home after punching a Geordie Plumber and the rest of the Contractors walked off the Site! I was quickly drafted in. Good money working for the Americans.
The first Flare Stack bent in the middle when one of the two Cranes used for lifting it in position had a malfunction and nine months after the Plant was handed over there was an explosion and fire after a product pump leakage :o
A cold and remote place in Winter in those days a lot busier now.

I have been very fortunate when it comes to work opportunities and coming through a period in time when jobs were plentiful especially with a " Double Barrelled" background ( Steam and Diesel) which was not only of use at sea but also when working ashore thanks to an Agent for whom of course you had to pay a fee but he was well worth it when it came to the financial gain at the end of the day, there was only one job I turned down flat and that was recommissioning a Power Station in Egypt when at the time the Israelis were knocking hell out of Egypt, the money was out of this world but I didn't fancy working in a War Zone :o
Some of the jobs would be frowned upon in today's H&S world and they have left me suffering with Arthritis but I did manage to retire in my early 50's and my late Wife and I along with the children had some great times along the South Coast of France our favourite place, Cyprus coming a close second.
Feel sorry for the youngsters of today when it comes to the lack of job opportunities especially if they have not gained an "oligy"

N.E. and Keelman I am sure your backgrounds will be more interesting than mine ;) although working on the "Hornbeam Project" was certainly unusual to say the least, I am surprised that on this marine community site others appeared to not have had any involvement bearing in mind it is longer Secret and your/ their vast knowledge and photographic collections of shipping would have been invaluable.
The Gaul tragedy opened up the 'can' on what was going on.
