    A revolving door?? In NL?? Whoever heard of such thing!

    And the producers continue to regulate themselves.

    Agree with the insider. I have worked in several countries on several continents. The people at the CNLOPB got to much time on their hands and thus the level of oversight is absolutely ridiculous. They would never be able to manage this if the rig/installation count was doubled or tripled or more.

    That the door continuously "revolves" is a real problem, but not the most dangerous one. That the CNLOPB exists simply to give ex-politics a cushy job title, a nice office and a big paycheque while serving absolutely no useful purpose whatsoever is the problem. But until something catastrophic happens that illustrates the CNLOPB's complete lack of decisive, competent leadership and authority ----and it will ---- no one here will notice anything except the occasional new job announcements. Of course, soon after such an event, we'll hastily launch a commission of enquiry into the failings of the CNLOPB, and give out even more make-work jobs to retired bureaucratic operatives. It's all about public service, folks......

    The board, er bored, is viewed by industry as a joke; period.

    The door is constantly revolving to reward Tory brown-nosers and political bootlickers. It has nothing whatsoever to do with offshore safety, environmental protection or industry regulation.

    The sleepy offshore board panders to big oil and is a dumping ground for Tory hacks. It's accountable to nothing or no-one and it's sole purpose is to payback Tory supporters with plum appointments; a look at recent and past appointees prove this to be factual.
