Waypoints of oil/gas structures in North Sea?

Does anyone know of a reliable source of waypoint data for oil and gas platforms and other structures in the North Sea?

I'm hoping for something I can load into a charting program, to help work out a route roughly strait across from around Oslo to the east coast of England which avoids the most populated areas.

Understandably, locations are changing constantly, but having a reasonably up-to-date set of waypoints would be very useful in planning.

Related question: do oil/gas platforms and similar structures in the North Sea broadcast their position via AIS?

I.e. if I had an AIS receiver with proximity alarm, would it "see" these structures?

That is an area you just stay awake!
Went down to Portsmouth some years back, and it may be 'messy'.
There are no straight lines except the shipping lanes which are marked out in most maps. They however may be rather busy too.
At least they have radar reflectors.
All fixed installations are reasonably well marked out, but there might be some 'test drilling' etc that are not.
I do not believe they are into the AIS system.
