The Largest Oil Rig in The World

   Off the shores of the Gulf of Mexico engineers are building a technological masterpiece called Perdido. Forty-five thousand tons of steel will be transformed into the most advanced oil rig in the world - a giant in the extreme world of offshore engineering. End of August 2008 - today is the big day for the builders of Perdido. They are moving the bottom half of their oil rig from the construction dock in Texas out into the ocean. Eighteen thousand tons of metal will travel for three hundred kilometres into the Gulf of Mexico. Here it will form the base for the state-of-the-art floating oil rig that will tap into three newly discovered oil fields. Perdido is expected to produce enough oil every day to fill up the 150000 cars with petrol...
