Lacking much new content for the picture of the day I have decided to broaden the scope a bit, so here is the Elgin Platform, producing gas for Total far out in the North Sea, quite close to the Norwegian marine border. This platform was floated out and then jacked up on its three lattice legs, and is unique for the approach. Just visible behind the right hand side is the WHP, the wellhead platform, so the wells are separated from the production and accommodation areas.

I - your scribe - took the photo myself back in 2007, and it is posted here on 1st May 2017.
