Naming ceremony JLP01_09_752240

Graythorp, Hartlepool. A young woman carrying out the naming ceremony for the oil platform Graythorp II.
In the early 1970s Laing Pipelines Offshore constructed the Graythorp fabrication yard and dry dock on the site of the old William Gray Shipyard. The company created a dry dock which was used for the construction of fixed platform North Sea drilling rigs for the BP North Sea Oil Project. The oil platform Graythorp I was launched on Saturday 29th June 1974 and on the weekend of 14th-15th June 1975, Graythorp II was named and floated out of the dock basin down the Seaton Channel to where it was handed over to its owners BP

Poster prints are produced on 255gsm Color Vibrance Luster Photo Paper resulting in timeless and breathtaking prints, which are also ideal for framing. Looking for high-quality poster prints that can stand the test of time? Our posters are available in standard sizes (A0, A1, A2, and A3) and are printed on 255gsm photographic paper, which is thicker and more durable than the typical paper used for poster prints. This means your posters will not only look stunning, but they'll also last longer, ensuring that you can enjoy them for years to come. Size refers to the size of paper used.

Poster prints are budget friendly enlarged prints in standard poster paper sizes (A0, A1, A2, A3 etc). Whilst poster paper is sometimes thinner and less durable than our other paper types, they are still ok for framing and should last many years. Our Archival Quality Photo Prints and Fine Art Paper Prints are printed on higher quality paper and the choice of which largely depends on your budget.
