Hi Peter is the driller linked with the DP4 in your photo? and also the Bay Driller is now the accommodation platform on the Douglas complex? Comment left on 11 August 2012 at 21:19 by Dan Hunt

I think the Morecambe Flame was the accommodation at the Douglas platform. Comment left on 29 August 2012 at 22:49 by Karl Schjolberg
Morecambe Flame is on The Douglas Complex not Bay Driller. Comment left on 29 April 2013 at 11:45 by Bob Whittaker
