    A big mix of all nationalities.

    Why do you ask?

      They look like a good company to join after my cadetship. This is because I like the idea of sailing on LNG tankers but I dont want to be the only english officer onboard. That's why I asked

        Nowt wrong with being the only one on board so I wouldn't worry about it.

        You want to work with LNG huh? Why's that? (this is just curiosity, nothing else)

          From what I have heard the pay on LNG tankers is quite high and I am interested in the steam turbines that appear to power the majority of those types of vessels.
          What is life gererally like onboard one of these ships. What I should have said was that I dont want to be the only officer who speaks conversational english.

            You'll find the Officer's and Crew on LNG ships will speak a much higher level of English as these are complicated vessels that require them to have a higher level of education, also SIRE requires it. I currently deal with four LNG ships and the crew on board all speak excellent English.

            Life on-board will be similar to that of any other tanker, only the requirements for these vessels are different. Go into your college and look for a book called SIGGTO. That has all the requirements for LNG's in them.

            I wouldn't just get myself stuck to just LNG's though. The pay is considerably higher, but the majority run Steam Ships and you don't want to get stuck with just a Steam Ticket, try and get a combined one.

              Bp Ships will be British, Irish and Polish Officers. The Pay on the LNG ships are no more than any other BP ship in the fleet.

                Maybe not, but pay on LNG ships overall tends to be higher....

                  I have to admit, as a Brit, its always nice to have a fellow Brit onboard to share the humour and be able to talk to about things. Four of us where I work now (2 deck and 2 engine) which makes a pleasant working environment.
                  Nothing wrong with other nationalities, but I do understand where the OP is coming from.
