This video by National Geographic demonstrates the how they try to to tap some of the most inaccessible natural gas on the Earth; five high-tech vessels complete a 1,800 sq. mile gas network. This network includes really incredible machines - a rig that drills wells miles under the water and a ship that lies pipeline on the oceans floor. At the heart of the project is the enormous gas-processing platform called the Independence Hub, specially designed to float in the stormy Gulf of Mexico. This system will be able to produce enough gas to supply about 5 million households in the United States.
