"Offshore life connects you closely with your colleagues. This creates cohesion and good friendship. I often think of my colleagues as the other "family". At the same time, the offshore life means missing my friends and family sometimes."

"Offshore life has characterized by working in rotation, with 14 days long sessions followed by 4 weeks off. Very good working environment, becomes like your second family when you are on board. One works very intensely, everybody has that same respect for safety, process reliability and are proud of their workplace. You have everything you need on board, Doctor, Kiosk, Internet, Gym, Cinema, Hobby clubs and everything else you could wish for".

"Good working environment, a lot of varied work, and interesting work operations. It is a workplace with a strong focus on safety and the working environment.

Martin is 20 years old, comes from Nedre Vats, Norway and has worked 1.5 years offshore as an apprentice mechanic.
"For me, offshore life is a culture, when you are at work you always thinking about safety and how to do the job you have in the best way possible. Then it is also something that you contribute to the welfare state of Norway so that we can preserve and have the benefits we have today. As well as being social and I can't wait to go to work every time. You are at work for 2 weeks but with good colleagues who become like a Family where you have a lot of good humor among us the two weeks go incredibly fast."
