The disaster aboard Deepwater Horizon has touched the offshore community like no other event I have witnessed in my career in this industry. Some of us have worked aboard Deepwater Horizon and are deeply saddened at the news of missing friends and colleagues while our hearts are lifted by the large number of crew who survived. There are also some in our numbers who may not have known anyone aboard but share the common bond of earning our living offshore.
On Sunday April 25th at 11:00 AM CST we will sound our ships whistle in honor of the all the crew members of the Deepwater Horizon. We will also open our weekly general safety meetings at 1300 and 0100 with a moment of silence for the crew members who remain missing and are assumed to have perished.
Please forward this message to any colleagues you have working offshore on rigs, platforms and work boats inviting them to join us in this remembrance.
