A Nassau registered DSV mothership on Charter to a company registered in Singapore but with am office in the UK steams out of Aberdeen to the Ekofisk field (owned by an American company) about 200 miles from anywhere and on arrival switches to DP to remain on station 1nm away from the platforms. When it lowers a 6 metre RIB into the water to shuttle to the platform with PAX and gear, what ticket does the RIB's Driver/Skipper need ?
This isn't a hypothetical question as these were the circumstances of my first trip offshore
Also does the MCA have Authority in International water?
