Garry, the year is right , but this is the BP Magnus which floated out in 1982, with the tank farm in the background. [Title changed: Editor]

The Magnus was the largest steel jacket ever built in terms of weight - as far as I know it still is.

The tank farm is Nigg Oil Terminal, started by BNOC for the Beatrce field (I worked there during commissioning). The crane visible in the foreground was the world's biggest mobile crane and built on-site for the project.
