She's Here!

The Saipem 10,000 drill ship is finally in Balikpapan. Anchored at Buoy #1 near the outer marker of Balikpapan's port authority's zone of control (and conveniently right outside the Geolog office) she arrived at 10am this morning.

I've taken a photo from the upstairs balcony at the office - the Saipem 10k is the bundle of grainy pixels in the centre. Don't let the photo fool you - it is a B-I-G vessel and she is much, much closer than she appears. Plus the weather is sunny and the skies are blue. Crappy iPhone camera.

Now it just remains to get the unit on board, the start-up crew out here and the rig-up underway. Hopefully by the end of the week we'll all be onboard and sweating kilos off our waistlines.
