Big Work Provider

Petrosa Plant in Mossel Bay

Petrosa: One of the Largest Work Providers in Mossel Bay

If anyone is wondering why I have not posted recently, the answer is simple: Three weeks of solid work have taken every minute of my time. I haven’t had a line in the water since the beginning of the month. Jen is wondering if she’ll ever get to have a meal with me again…

Such is my working life; days, weeks sometimes even a month or two with no work whatsoever, followed by non-stop 7 day weeks. This time it was one of the spin-off industries that developed from Mosgas/Petrosa. When I first arrived in Mossel Bay, there was not much in the way of large industry. Much of the industrial activity revolved around commercial fishing and the port.

How things have changed. The natural gas industry developed in the mid to late 1970’s becoming one of the largest employers and contributors to the local economy. These days it seems most of the work I do is in some way related to this industry.

Time now to visit the rocks, throw a few baits before picking up the good-lady at 16hoo (And trying to convince her to spend the evening with a rod in her hands!)
