From what I saw when I was there last fall and talking with guys there and guys from the forum, I'd say 1 to 1.5 year of working non stop with no break. That is provided you do not piss it all on booze, drugs and strippers in your off time. Perhaps Scotian, Irishman and the other guys already there can also chip in on that topic which is of high importance to most people.

Ill get around to answering this soon. Once you are set up and if you are working pretty consistent you can save over 60k a year pretty handy.

I think if I went flat out working and saving next year I could put away 100k. Would be pretty taxing mentally though.

I got some good info about working offshore as an mwd recently too so might post that up also.
