I think the Enterprise still gives former Engineers nightmares, even today.
I saw her in Khor Fakkan in July 2006, apparently about to proceed into Dubai Drydocks to be converted into an LPG FPSO.

When running between Ras Tanura & Vlissingen on P&O's gas carrier Garinda, around late 1970's early 1980's we were often in the same places as Gas Enterprise. Did many transhipments off Vlissingen into various other ships, a poor run though I do not think anyone managed to go ashore for the whole trip.
Best wishes
Nigel.
