About

My name is Neil Rothnie.  I started offshore  in 1973 on the Sea Quest as a steward.  I worked offshore (in drilling) for most of my working life. I spent the last 35  years as a mud engineer, the last 20 or so offshore Norway.  I retired in 2016.  I am not convinced that those who stand to lose their lives when safety fails offshore have been allowed to learn the lessons of the blowout on the G4 well on Total’s Elgin platform.
