Offshore Structures

Offshore Structures

There are many different types of structures associated with the offshore oil and gas industry on the UK Continental Shelf. Oil platforms and drilling rigs are easily visible but below the surface there are many more structures which if not avoided may become serious hazards to fishing operations.

The image displayed to the right shows that although there is only one structure visible from the surface (an FPSO), there are several subsea structures present.

Please follow the links below for more information relating to specific structures:
