Photos from Heidrun

It has been a couple of weeks since my visit to the Heidrun oil platform, but I realized that I have yet to show you the photos that were taken of us as we did the tour of the platform. As I mentioned in my previous post we were not allowed to take photos in the outside areas, but there was a photographer following each tour group around, and Statoil were nice enough to send us the photos on a DVD shortly after our trip. I am so happy I got the chance to go on this visit to Heidrun, and we were treated with such enormous amounts of hospitality every step of the way. It was truly a once in a lifetime experience.

This is the orange safety-suit that we had to wear while flying the helicopter. I look like a Teletubbie, no? I like my expression – very oil rig Barbie.

I’m pretty sure you can’t tell, but I’m the one in the black scarf.

So there you go, that concludes my small series of posts about my visit to Heidrun. If you missed the previous ones you can find the post containing my own photos here.

All photos in this post are courtesy of Statoil.

P.S: Thank you so much for the well wishes in my previous post. I’m not back on my feet quite yet, but I’m getting there. It has been a ridiculous week health-wise, and I’m sure I’ll write about it as soon as I’m back to my old self again.

    Teletubby-Barbie-Maja! I love it :D

  3. Interesting photos…though they certainly aren’t as picturesque as yours :) In fact, there’s a distinct touristy vibe in this one ^_^ Love the last two photos though.

    Btw, I’m curious… why was it necessary to wear a safety-suit just for the helicopter ride?

      Hee hee, I take that as a compliment drifter queen my dear! The big orange suits were just for the helicopter ride, and were really high-tech. GPS-trackers, lights, beepy things, flashing things – they made you feel very very safe :)

    That is actually pretty cool. How did you end up doing something like that?

    I’m new to this blog. I like :)

      My dad works at that oil platform, and three times a year they have a lottery where family members can win an all expenses paid trip to visit. I was one of the lucky winners this time around :)
