The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model. If any users of the site would be interested in the possibility of taking this incredible archive or pictures and comments over including paying for hosting, please get in touch
Oil Rig Photos
Hook up was just finishing when I was there. See the size of this giant by comparing with the supply boat underneath. The "Jarlan wall" support the cellar deck along with the central column. Oil is stored in the cells which were originally flooded to sink it into position. My original accomodation was in the TLQ just above the gas compression module. They are on the top right over the flares.
