BP Forties , Kiwi, Sealion,Bedford Dolphin.

Hi
I was working for Brown & Root ( Eumech) in 77 -79 in the Forties field during the early days of hook up. We used to shuttle from the Kiwi to on whatever platform we were designated. I also remember there was a converted Tanker or Bulker called the Sealion that we used as an accomodation vessel and also a floater accomodation vessel called either the Belford Dolphin or Bedford Dolphin.
Can anyone enlighten me if the Sealion replaced the Kiwi and then the Dolphin replaced the Sealion, can’t remember so far back so clearly now.Anyone know what happened to the Kiwi and Sealion after the Forties.

The Kiwi was replaced by the Iolair which I was on and this became the ESV in the Forties and had accommodation for all contractors working in the field. The Kiwi went off to Magnus if my memory is correct.

I was Bosun on the Forties Kiwi 1976-78, remember all the vessels mentioned, was the Sealion a Crane Barge. I believe the Kiwi was sold to the Greeks after the Magnus field.

Mathieson - The Sea Lion was a crane barge, it also had a full pipelay system but it had never been used.
