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 58°27′35″N 0°15′04″E).
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.
