His colleagues have paid tribute to a young man's enthusiasm and passion for his job."Our deepest sympathies go to James' mother Verona and the rest of his family, friends and colleagues. The oil industry has lost one of its brightest prospects and he will be sorely missed."

I’m very sad to hear of the loss of James, We had not kept in touch for a while but I used to play online games with him when I was younger and went to a couple of gaming events with him in England (WoF and BanLanRisng).

He was a truly nice person and never heard him say a bad word about anyone.

My deepest sympathies go out to his family and friends.

There must be many tens thousands of people around this country and the world who have seen this young man's hopeful, kind face and felt so desperately sorry for those who were close to him. I am nearing the end of my helicopter pilot training and hope, one day soon, to be entrusted with the care of people like James in the North Sea. I will remember one face always. Safe journey ahead, James.

As childhood friends I have the memories of us playing computer games for hours and eating your mum's fine cooking. I feel sad that we did not keep in touch over the last 14 years but I am happy to see you lived your life to the full and achieved great things. I cannot even begin to think how much you will be missed by your family and friends but I send out my deepest condolences to all of them in the hope that they can get through this difficult time.

I'm glad to have known you dear friend, may you forever rest in peace.

Moose - your passing is a tragic loss to a great many people. One of the nicest, most switched-on and friendly people you could hope to meet. I'll always remember you showing us the broken bits of the wingmirror on your car still trying to work after some halfwit had vandalised it when you were away. You weren't bitter or angry about it, like I would have been, you took it in your stride and just laughed (and made us laugh) and showed us how daft it looked with this bunch of wiring and leds waving about and flashing aimlessly where the mirror unit used to be. I'll always remember that with a smile. It's a privilege to have met you and impossible to take in that I won't have that pleasure again. My thoughts and all my sympathy are with your family and friends.

R.I.P James, you will be sorely missed.

It only seems like yesterday I was persuading his Mum to let him come to one of the early BLRs at Highfield.. I remember picking up a quiet, polite 15yr old lad from Boro train station who seemed nothing like his online persona.

Over the 10 years I've known Moose I've witnessed him change from the quiet school boy into the confident, happy go lucky young man that we'll all remember him as.

I miss you Moose, our gaming sessions together and the screams of Moooooooooooooose as you join the servers.

James,
I was on the Miller a few weeks ago and although I never knew you personally I remember you eating your dinner with us a few times and coming down the gym for some circuit training. You were a nice lad with a very friendly nature

I was shocked and devastated to hear about what happened to you an the rest of the lads in this terrible accident.

My thoughts are with you and your family at this sad time..

Words are failing me really .. James was always 'moosey' to me since I knew him as a young and shy lad of 15. He was a wonderful friend, a great gentle and generous young man and someone who I considered a surrogate son. I was proud in every possible way of having known him .. I miss him so much .. Thank you for letting us all share your life ..
