Rigs I Have Worked On #7 - Piper Bravo
The Piper Bravo is a North Sea oil production platform originally operated by Occidental Petroleum (Caledonia) Ltd. It was built to replace the Piper Alpha platform, which was destroyed by a fire and subsequent series of explosions in 1988. It is located approximately 120 metres from the wreck buoy marking the remains of its precursor (at ).
The field is now owned by Talisman Energy and has recently undergone an upgrade to accept gas from the Tweedsmuir North & South discoveries 52 km to the south.
