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
The old personnel basket in use Stavanger Norway whilst the Sedco 700 was undergoing inspection and repair. Gives you some idea of the size of the rig in this scale. I understand the hull of the 700 is still in use with new upper deck works, believe it is in the Far East.
