Andrew Wylie was appointed as the first chaplain to the UK offshore oil industry in 1985. He tells how he found his feet amongst the diverse people employed at all levels of work on the North Sea platforms. His time with the industry covered a period of major offshore tragedies. The core of this memoir shows how Andrew Wylie developed his mission in the offshore oil industry. It is coupled with a wry and very human observation of that industry. Just Being There will appeal to all those who work, or have worked, in the industry. This book will also enlighten those of us who are all too unaware of the nature of the people and the operations that make possible our comfortable onshore lives.
