Bluewater Uisge Gorm

The 'Uisge Gorm' is the fourth Bluewater designed, built, owned and operated Floating Production, Storage and Offloading (FPSO).
The vessel entered operation 16 August 1995 at the Fife field for Amerada Hess.

In 1997 the Fergus field was tied in and in October 1998 first oil from a second tie-in, Flora, was produced. In October 2001 a third tie in was completed with the addition of the Angus field.

She is seen here offloading to a shuttle tanker.

As with all Bluewater vessels, she is named 'Blue Water' in another language, in this case Gaelic.

I spent one trip on here supporting an inspection team in 1996 .. all I remember was the long helecopter flight from Aberdeen.

I built a Sea Water Injection Cartridge for Uisge Gorm, few years ago now.

I was on one of the sister vessels - Haewene Brim a few years ago. I'll try find the pictures I have of that one and upload.
