Constructed in 4 main modules and floated out during 1975, the platform began producing oil from the North Sea Piper Field in 1976. It was later adapted to handle gas condensate, in addition. The platform was destroyed by explosions and fire on 6 Jul 1988.

Its role has been taken over by the nearby Piper Bravo platform.
