Black Gold takes place on an oil rig. The rig is vast, with many catwalks, hallways, and breakrooms. A heavy mist obscures the ocean, so the oil rig's location cannot be determined, though it is likely off the coast of Fairport.
- Unlike other maps, which are based on locations visited in the campaign, the oil rig is unique; no oil rig is visited by the Point Man in F.E.A.R. 3's story.
