    SECOND LIFE FOR BEATRICE FROM WIND

    Wind is the new energy source for oil's legendary North Sea Beatrice Field:
    Work starts on Beatrice oil field wind farm
    July 19, 2006 (Oil & Gas Journal)

    - [Work has begun] on a demonstration deepwater wind energy project that will extend the life of Beatrice oil field in the UK North Sea off Scotland.
    - The project...will use two of the largest turbines installed anywhere to test feasibility of wind farms in 45 m of water...It will supply power to the adjacent Beatrice platform, parts of which will require modification. On stream since 1981, Beatrice produced an average of 3,800 b/d of oil last year...

    The Beatrice Field, discovered and developed by legendary Texas oilman T. Boone Pickens' Mesa Petroleum, was named after Pickens' wife and was the first North Sea field ever named after a woman. (She is the beautiful blonde, above.)
