        thanks Ombugge,but when it stands on the seabed i would think that it will sink IN the seabed,specially when there is placed a heavy structure on top of the jack.



        the red are the legs that will stand on the seabed,there is a marker on those platforms with ''mudline'' (the bleu square,just saw it when i was mark the image)
        but those pipes are just above the seabed,but when the sink into the seabed,what will happen with them?
        best regards Thijs

          Cargo vessel AFRICAN SUN passed my home at Freifjord just now, on her way to Hydro Aluminium, Sunndalsøra.
          We see the 994 meters high Reinsfjell mountain in the background.






          Cecilia (if you read this) :
          Thanks for the PM. Vilde will return a few (but selected) words later...

            This jacket has no "Mud Mats" so it is bound to be going on a location with hard sandy bottom. (Look at the earlier "Jackets" you presented some months ago)

            Your "mud lines" are "J-tubes" and "risers" and will be connected to pipe lines on the seabed, carrying the "well fluid" from this "Well head Platform" to a "Production Platform" or "FPSO", positioned not too far away. There the Crude Oil, Water, Sand and Gas will be separated and the "salable products" will be sent to shore via pipe lines, or via "export tankers".

            More Oil Field terms to learn here.

              The Chinese are coming, everywhere.
              The Chinese Ice Breaker Xue Long is presently in the Arctic and appears to be heading for Bear Island:

              Maybe they have heard about the famous beaches for naked bathing there?

              The picture was take when leaving Akureyri 20. Aug. 2012

              Here is some info on the ship: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MV_Xue_Long

              China has a research station in Ny-Aalesund and in Antarctica. They will not be left behind when the ice melts.

                      Looks like a kelp trawler. Typical 14.99 metre length design to avoid a license to skipper it.

                        I don't think so. No kelp bin on deck. Name is RAMBO, but I don't think it has done much body building.

                          You are right, From the Marinetraffic pics it looks like it has been converted to carry deck cargo. A former kelp trawler it is

                            Not too many, but instead very fine pictures from Bodø. Great work Speedbird!
