I am working with Cygnus Gas Field and we are presently offshore at North Sea, United Kingdom in the Cygnus project,. We do not have access to phone at the moment, its 30days off and 30days on, which is why I contacted you with internet messaging facility. Where is it located at the moment? Does it have any history I should be aware of? and MOT/TAX if you don't mind my asking... I don't mind adding an extra £200.00 for you just to take down the posting, I am already in talks with the courier that will handle the pick-up and delivery after payment. As regards of the payment, I will be paying through PayPal account, using PPal instant wire transfer service, I will need your PayPal email account details. If you do not have, you can set up a PayPal account proper at www.paypal.co.uk and I will make the payment through PayPal, this way, all I will need is your PayPal email address.. I will be needing the details below..
