A load of pipe for the road

Well the client pays too much for this boat to have us sit the last couple days before crew change. I woke up to use leaving the tank cleaners this morning and by the time I was out of the shower we had tied up at Baroid on the bayou. We took on the usual two tanks of barite and then shifted around the corner into the slip to load a couple thousand barrels of mud. After that more shuffling around and farther into the Halliburton slip to the base to put on the pipe racks, and then finally over to C-Port 2 slip 1 to load a whole mess of casing. A load of pipe for the road if you will.
I can’t complain, the weather is beautiful and it should be a quick easy trip out to the rig, and another couple DP days towards my certificate.

I got a good shot of the Celia Candies today as she turned into Halliburton slip. As I type this she is departing slip 5 a little ways over. There is an engineer on there from my home town, its funny how small of a world this industry is.
