Rig and service base


Rig and service base, originally uploaded by ccgd.

Looking over to Invergordon, Cromarty Firth, from Balblair

Three rigs - and the Hutton TLP - now stacked in the Firth. With the oil price now at rock bottom, its not too fancifull to expect the Firth to fill up with semi-subs and jack-ups over the next wee while.

The mystery of why the Hutton Hull has been left in the Firth seems to have been solved. The Spanish yard at Cadiz, where she was to be converted to a drilling rig for the Gulf, has "financial difficulties".

Interesting times indeed.
