THE LARGEST OIL RIG IN THE WORLD
|D O W N L O A D|
This video is devoted to the largest rig in the world - her name is Perdido and she was built somewhere in the Mexican Gulf. You will be able to witness how the prominent engineers were building this genuine technological masterpiece. Just imagine, more than forty-five thousand tons of steel were transformed into the most advanced oil rig on the planet - a true giant in the extreme world of offshore engineering.
End of August 2008 - today is the big day for the constructors of Perdido. They are moving the bottom half of their offshore oil rig from her construction dry dock in Texas out into the ocean. More than eighteen thousand tons of metal will travel for three hundred kilometers into the Mexican Gulf. Here it will form the base for the state-of-the-art floating installation 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. Needless to say that this is a must-watch for any offshore person and in fact everyone.
