A stunning image has been taken of the northern lights seen above BP’s Glen Lyon floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel, west of Shetland.
The image was captured by Scotland-based photographer Steven Donaldson, showing the natural phenomenon illuminating the sky above the vessel.
Glen Lyon is being used as part of BP’s multi-billion pound redevelopment of the Schiehalloin and Loyal fields, around 110 miles west of the Shetland islands, known as the Quad 204 project.
BP and its partners expect to unlock a further estimated 450 million barrels of oil equivalent (boe), extending the life of the fields past 2035.
Production is expected to peak at 130,000 boe per day.
The Schiehallion and Loyal fields were first developed in the mid-1990s and produced over 400million boe over the course of 15 years.
The original FPSO then had to be replaced, and coupled with strides in technology, the redevelopment plan was made.
