Where in the World is Thanet?
Thanet is in South East England (map)
and used to be a real island. In Roman times, the mile wide Wansum Channel
separated Thanet from the mainland. Although still technically an island,
Thanet is now bordered by the River Stour to the south and the River Wansum to
the west. The River Wansum is all that remains of the Wansum Channel and today
is little more than a large drainage channel.

My Seismic LifeFor nearly 14 years I
worked on Seismic survey ships world wide. Most of the time it was just an office
that moves more than most, but we also had our share of running from Hurricanes
and Cyclones. My final assignment was the Geco Diamond in Mexico, although
I still get to visit the boats occasionally

In September 2004 I took an office job at WesternGeco's Research and training
centre just outside Oslo, Norway.
The Companies Concerned
If you're really interested (I wouldn't advise it), this is the company
website (slb). The bit I worked for was sold and then turned into ShearWater.
