Hi, My partner has just started work on an oil rig in South Africa, I just wondered if anyone else knows how easy it is to communicate when on the riggs, we are from the UK? I havent even had an email yet since he left dry land but it has only been 2 days! Thanks :) x

Hi Michelle,



He wasnt really sure but said he would ring every day it all happened very quickly to be honest he got the job one week, did his survival the next and then went straight away. There was so much to sort out before he left we didnt really look into it properly, surely there must be good internet access? I dont know much about working offshore abroad, I know the North sea communication methods are fairly good. Thanks for replying

I would say it's not that easy. Didn't you check out the communication types before he left?



He could also be busy trying to get used to the new job.
