COLUMN | Correcting course: Aramco and jackups; Siem Offshore and Kristian Siem; Ferguson Marine; MMA Offshore; Maersk/Svitzer [Offshore Accounts]

Harold Macmillan was supposedly once asked what the most troubling problem of his time as British Prime Minister was. “Events, my dear boy, events,” was his reply.

COLUMN | Lowered expectations: Saudi Arabia’s oil production; Nigeria’s currency; SBM’s whistleblower; Falkland Islands’ FPSO [Offshore Accounts]

The novelist Jodi Picoult once said that, “there are two ways to be happy: improve your reality, or lower your expectations.” Changing the world for the better is hard, but there have been a lot of expectations lowered in the offshore industry this week.

Merry Christmas! On the twelfth day of Christmas my true love gave to me… twelve drummers drumming, eleven pipers piping, ten lords a-leaping and so on, all the way back to that partridge in a pear tree from day one of the old festive carol. But not here, as, for the fourth year in a […]
