Default Thunder Horse Critters

The ROV crew here on Thunder Horse recently share some pics and video with us. I must say, these guys have the coolest job on the platform. It looks like they are playing a video game with joy sticks driving those ROVs. Figured I'd share here since I know some of you guys fish this area.
