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

Flaring on Statfjord A.
Statfjord is the largest oil field in the North Sea. It has three platforms, all concrete based with oil storage in the legs. Each platform is connected to a loading bay to allow offloading of oil to a shuttle tanker.
