This is SPM No. 1. The Flotta oil terminal receives oil via a pipeline from the Piper,Claymore and Tartan oil fields. Tankers can berth alongside the terminal to take on oil but larger tankers, too big to berth, use these SPMs (Single Point Moorings)to take on oil. SPM No. 2 can be seen in the distance.
