So i know there is some on this forum who will as with me be possibly slightly uncomfortably aware of todays date and some who are blissfully unaware.
However 25 years ago today 167 men lost their lives in one of the biggest tragedies the oil industry has ever seen. At approximately 9.55pm on 06/07/1988 a sequence of events began which lead to an explosion and oil and gas fires that lead to the destruction of the Piper Alpha platform and the tragic loss of 167 lifes.
I for one will be quietly reflecting on it this evening and raising a glass to those who lost their life on that tragic evening.
Any of the rest of you have any plans?
