Taking a Break in Norway
Participants in an intense, five-day Rig Manager, Asset training course in Stavanger, topped off their time in Norway with an intense hike to the top of the Preikestolen Cliff (also known as Pulpit Rock) on September 13. The group reported beautiful autumn weather and spectacular views. “Any visitor to Stavanger should take the opportunity to visit this fantastic piece of nature and explore the magnificent views afforded to them throughout the climb,” said Dave Saunders, Rig Manager, Asset, for the GSF High Island VII.

In Style in Indonesia


Co-workers in Jakarta

Co-workers in Balikpapan and Jakarta, Indonesia, donned traditional batik (fabric dyed with Indonesian patterns) following UNESCO (United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization) designating batik as a “Masterpiece of Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity” on Oct. 2, 2009. Proclaimed masterpieces are chosen by a panel of experts in one of two categories: forms of popular and traditional cultural expressions; or cultural spaces, i.e., places where cultural and popular activities are concentrated and regularly take place (markets squares, festivals, etc.). Batik joins a list of nearly 100 other proclaimed masterpieces, like Argentina’s tango dance and China’s chinese calligraphy.
