This is not a Norwegian attempt at building a copy of the Eiffel tower.

It is easy to spot while driving on the motorway ( E39) in to the city centre.
ULLRIGG is the name, it is a rig used for testing drilling technology and training.
I have never been invited to see inside, but if they do ever have an open day I will be there.
But now I know someone who is working there, so I suddenly got an interest for the company, and our city is also the "oil capital" of Norway.

Night shots like this are so great...digital cameras really bring out the colors. Good job!

To live in an oil capital has its advantages...

Bit of a disadvantage when you use film!
