As part of our commitment to providing a firsthand experience of the offshore world—we will be launching a series dedicated to depicting the offshore landscape as seen through the view of offshore personnel at sea.
This particular series titled Offshore: The Coming Storm illustrates the dramatic changes that occur when a storm comes to life on the horizon, and the invisible line that is draws. A line that separates the landscape in two: the calm and favorable, from the volatile and unfavorable. And as all offshore personnel know, this is a line with high unpredictability and volatility, which in the process creates spectacular images. But one does not need to be a seasoned offshore worker to experience this, one must only scroll down to get an intimate view of the above mentioned.
