Check out this photo from January 29th in the westernmost North Sea as a Hurricane Force low was rapidly developing in the northeast Atlantic, producing waves of 10 to 12 meters.

The photo was taken from the Solan platform located in UK waters west of Shetland at the Premier-operated Solan field and the rig you’re looking at is Diamond Offshore’s Ocean Valiant, an 8-point moored drilling platform.
