01/28/2009 - 10:56 Stuart - how are you mate and so so long no see? What are you up to nowadays? I moved to mobil Shipping in 1989 cos fed up with sailing on LNG ships so went as C/E on tankers but in 1994 mobil got involved with the qatargas 1 project and as I was the only LNG experienced idiot in the office I was "selected" to go to Japan, for nearly 4.5 years as it turned to be site manager at Mitsui to build 3 moss type 135K LNG carriers. After they were delivered, qatargas needed some LNG experience for the operational side so guess what - off to Qatar supposedly until the guarantee dockings were done. no surprise - did them then it was - "well can you hang on until we do the first special surveys?" no choice so did that then this QG2 project kicked off so I spend a lot of time travelling to Korea (DSME) to sort probelms out with the yard. Keep in touch mate.
