This facility was only staffed in connection with inspection, maintenance and repair. Tankers could connect and load oil without anyone needing to be on the buoy. The single-point mooring (SMP) structure was an oscillating column design. It stood in block 33/9 between the A and C platforms, and about two kilometres from the latter. The water depth there is 145.7 metres.
