BP Harding 9/23b
The Harding field itself is located 200 miles north-east of Aberdeen in the BP-operated block 9/23b, in 110m of water. Discovered in February 1987 in acreage licensed to Britoil in the ninth licensing round, the oil lies in Eocene deposits at a depth of approximately 1,850m beneath the seabed.
The gravity base tank that is beneath the surface was built at Hunterston
