[QUOTE=ombugge;184377]It must be so you can understand those non-English speaking low-educated Norwegians that operate those inferior designed and equipped boats, cheaply built by slave labour in Eastern Europe and fitted out by cheap imported labourers in Ulsteinvik.
You can wonder why those greedy, money grabbing Oilco bosses would entrust their multi-billion $$$ GOM project to such boats and people, when they could get state-of-the-art American built and equipped boats, manned by top qualified American Mariners by paying a bit more. Don’t they know that quality and safety cost?
Ooops, now I managed to insult everybody, incl. the Norwegians working in the GOM.

Shouldn’t the Norwegians have to speak English to work in the GoM. Seems like a safety issue if they can’t.
I have been involved in many Billion Dollar Projects, somebody must trust me.
