Escravos LPG FSO

IMO : 8766179

Build : 1997 by ???

The worlds first LPG FSO, moored somewhere in Nigerian waters and used for the storage of LPG from a subsea well….and we are very thankfull that she is moored far away from the coast as she is dead-ugly. Actually she is just a box with a trailer hitch attached! That’s all she is and they managed to make her ugly! That quit a gift.

I actually think she looks a bit like a platypus Spoonbill:
