I used to owned this game as a child but was too young to play it. I'm interested in the North Sea and finally getting to play it.

Any copy will do - condition isn't that important - incomplete is ok.

It should be noted that I bid on a used, complete and in good condition copy of this game for £35 on ebay recently... it went for £280!

Who knew?

There are many strategy (and family) games dealing with oil exploration and production. This one comes to mind, as it relates to my profession.

Hmm... its called BP Offshore Oil Strike....

"Players have to deal with the possibility of large-scale oil spills and cover cleanup costs."
http://news.blogs.cnn.com/2010/07/06/70s-board-game-contains...

Something seems relevant here...

Bringing up the rear, after all those Monopoly clones, are the "also rans". This one features a map board showing the North Sea and parts of the Atlantic Ocean, English Channel, etc., with two colors of water depths, and land regions including the UK, Ireland, and continental Europe. An orthogonal grid representing leasing areas is overlaid on the map. Rather than just derricks, offshore oil platforms are included.

“Two to four players compete at exploring for oil, building platforms, and laying pipelines to bring the offshore oil back to the player's home company. Players take on the roles of either BP, Amoco, Chevron, or Mobil in their quest for oil. As with other games focusing on offshore oil exploitation (e.g., Omnia's North Sea Oil), there is also the risk that storms will reduce production on, or eliminate, one's oil platforms. The first player to make $120,000,000 in cash is the winner."

This one is new to me, but it's still all about the petroleum.
