SCP-XXXX-F and -G, taken from Foundation Observation Post 410

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: Naval Task Force Gamma-17, working from SCPS Unity is to oversee containment of SCP-XXXX. A small force consisting of NTF-Γ-17 agents is to be based upon each instance of SCP-XXXX to prevent vessels from travelling within 2km of the instances and to ensure the well-being of SCP-XXXX. If necessary, SCP-XXXX instances may be towed if they become too close to populated areas or other non-anomalous oil platforms.

Description: SCP-XXXX is the collective designation for 14 13 living organisms resembling offshore oil platforms (denoted as SCP-XXXX-A through -N). Each instance of SCP-XXXX is genetically similar, although not identical, and consist of a variety of oil platform types.

Instances of SCP-XXXX are mobile, and move slowly via limbs emulating anchors and supports. Instances of SCP-XXXX will maneuver themselves until they are over oil deposits (which they locate through an advanced system of echolocation) before "drilling" using long proboscis-like structures with extremely durable teeth, and then consuming the oil. The oil is then burnt slowly for energy and nutrition.

SCP-XXXX show the ability to observe and interact with their surroundings, and are extremely non-aggressive, however due to their large size they may cause damage to unaware ships or marine life. SCP-XXXX appear to have no predators, again due to their size. The lifespan of SCP-XXXX is unknown- only once instance (SCP-XXXX-C) is known to have died so far, during a major storm in the North Atlantic on ██/██/2003. This allowed an autopsy to be performed, the results of which are contained within Addendum 1.

SCP-XXXX-A was first discovered on ██/██/1982 when a shipping crew reported an abandoned and adrift oil platform off the coast of Nova Scotia. When the platform was unable to be identified, Canadian coastguards boarded the portal, before discovering the anomalous properties. The Foundation were contacted via the Royal Canadian Navy, and secured SCP-XXXX the day after. The members of the coastguard were given class-B amnestics. The Foundation conducted a search of marine territories, discovering the other 13 instances of SCP-XXXX by ██/██/1984.
