Going Offshore II

Previously, I've explained about some preparation on going offshore. There are actually a lot more to do. After getting the Helicopter Under Water Escape Training" (HUET) certificate and passing the offshore medical check up, you have to make an offshore passport. To obtain an offshore passport, you need to register with an oil company (Examples: Petronas, Shell, Exxon-Mobile, BP etc.). However, it's not that simple to get them. You won't get an offshore passport for fun. You must either be working with the oil company or an oil and gas servicing company which have a job or project in an offshore platform, in order to get the offshore passport. Please bring along 2-3 photos depending on which oil company you're registering.

Without the offshore passport, you are not allowed to work at an offshore platform. Some oil company allow people to visit an offshore platform without an offshore passport for a one day visit only, depending on the importance.

Once you have the passport and a job at an oil platform (you must already know the date when you're supposed to travel to that particular platform), you need to book a seat on a helicopter from the platform's Radio Officer (RO). The RO will then book the flight for you and inform the schedule of the helicopter.

There are a lot more to be shared. To be continued on coming post.
