Welcome to the fourth issue of our UK Pulse, the newsletter designed to bring you stories and achievements from our UK operations.
It has been another season of success in our UK business as we kicked off the year with two significant contracts awards from Talisman Sinopec Energy UK (TSEUK) and Chevron North Sea Limited. The TSEUK award is our first win in 2014 and testament to the relationship we have developed with this key customer over the last ten years. Our Chevron win is also a major coup, and the second award we have received from Chevron North Sea Limited in the past six months.
As 2013 drew to a close, our UK team restructured and we welcomed Sulzer Wood aboard. In this issue, we catch up with Murray Wilson to find out why this new partnership makes sense.
Our community support has reached a new high as we hit a £50,000 milestone for our UCAN appeal, thanks to so many of you going the extra mile. Read about the 65 runners who will complete the Baker Hughes 10k, the 35 cyclists who are limbering up for the Ride the North challenge and the 100 elite, who will complete the Tough Mudder event. Funds have also been bolstered by initiatives such as Pennies for Promises and our North Sea Health initiative.
Thirteen might be unlucky for some, but when it comes to awards, it's actually our lucky number. We've been short-listed for 13 awards and ranked as winner in a further two. Jane Richardson, Hugh Pelham, Andrew Dalgarno, the Kilimanjaro team and our Vine trust volunteers have done us proud in the living our value awards. Industry-wide we have five finalists in the Oil and Gas safety awards and three finalists in the cHeRries HR awards. Our Pulse production team won outstanding communications in the Hedgehog awards and Robin Watson came out on top at the Institute of Directors award when he was acknowledged as one of Scotland's top company directors.
In this issue, you can also read about the achievements of our UK convergence team, unravel 'who am I', in our new regular feature and learn about our safety cocoon, which aims to ensure that everyone, everywhere, every day - safe home.

Welcome to the second issue of our UK Pulse, the newsletter designed to bring you stories and achievements from our UK operations.
This year in the UK we have chalked up a string of successes and created a buzz throughout the industry. Not only have we scooped seven multi-million dollar contract extensions, we've also made an exciting acquisition and welcomed 1,800 new people to our team, increasing our headcount to over 10,000. We've smashed our Maggie's appeal target, doubling our pledge and donating over £200,000 for this vital charity.
It's fair to say we've never been far from the headlines, and made WGPSN the one to watch. We've led the way with the Piper 25 tribute, welcoming STV offshore and delivering the first ever live news feed from our Hummingbird vessel's helideck. It wasn't easy, but thanks to the hard work of teams onshore and offshore, we made this new way of delivering the news possible.
Once again, our people are being recognised throughout the industry and as the Pulse went to press, Brian Chalmers was short-listed in the prestigious Northern Star award in the highly sought after category of Rising Star of the year...
And that's just a snippet of what we're bringing you this issue. In Issue 2 of the Pulse, we chronicle a season of success.
