An anonymous gCaptain contributor sent us images of the heavy lift semi-submersible Saipem 7000 lifting the 11,500 ton accommodation block atop the “Ekofisk Z” over the weekend.  This will serve as the living quarters for the greater Ekofisk-complex offshore Norway, a ConocoPhillips-operated facility.
