The Times: All at sea

January 22, 2007 
Sir, Shell has announced a consultation exercise regarding the approaching decommissioning requirements for its Brent Field production platforms located 170 northeast of Shetland in the inhospitable environs of the North Sea.

I was working on these installations in the 1970s and 1980s when we discussed this very question. The most supported proposal was turning them into jails, until it was pointed out that the accommodation standards, even then, did not come near that required by legislation. 
West Kilbride, Ayrshire,,59-2559241.html and its also non-profit sister websites,,,,, and are all owned by John Donovan. There is also a Wikipedia article.
