Plans for a major Aberdeen oil tourism site from over 30 years ago could be "resurrected" by a new rig idea for the harbour, according to a business leader.
Brent Alpha, the huge Shell-operated North Sea platform, has arrived at a UK yard for dismantling.
The Brent Alpha platform has become the third installation to be removed from Shell’s famous North Sea field.
Shell has won a court order preventing environmentalists from boarding unmanned North Sea installations.
A court ruling on North Sea protests held by Greenpeace at Shell's Brent field has been delayed until next week.
The long wait may finally be over.
A sea bed rescue has been launched by Shell after a large container plunged into the North Sea from its Brent Alpha platform. The container is still to be retrieved, but has been placed on the sea bed at a depth of 140 metres by personnel after the Normand Subsea Dive Support Vessel (DSV) was brought in to retrieve it.
