Could be the BP Miller which would make it the early '90s.

This is the Amoco Arbroath Jacket being loaded out.

I suggest that it is the Amoco Arbroath Jacke, so that would put it around 1992ish.

I worked at Nigg in 1989 and Jacket was leaving yard then, think it was hooked up and producing in 1990

It is the Amoco Arbroath jacket. I worked on it in 1989 when we had that real bad storm that blew the door off of shop 4. We were stuck at the top of the jacket on backshift.

I think it's the Elf Froy jacket and the year would be 1994. I remember the loadout grillage being a pain to build and the fact that the above water section of the jacket having a big 'North' painted in black with an arrow alongside in case they put the jacket the wrong way round (Southeast Hutton style).

Not Miller as that was an eight leg and skid out in 1990/91. (was there)

Could be Elf Froy but could be AMOCO Everest Lomond 1991/92.

I was the local police officer in that area 1974 till 1977. I was at floating out of one rig, BP2 ?? In about 1976. The BP 1 was about 1974. If you have a contact (direct email) I might have some other info that you might find of interest. Ian mcneis
