Caption: Brent Charlie production platform in the northern North Sea.
Description: Brent Charlie production platform in the northern North Sea. The Brent oil field is located in block 211/30 in the northern North Sea. This is one of the production platforms, together with additional semi-submersible drilling rig. In the background is a survey vessel, or possibly a diving vessel. Large reserves of oil and gas were discovered in the northern North Sea. Platforms were installed in the fields to extract the hydrocarbons from the subsurface and pump them via pipelines to the shore.
