The Largest Oil Rig in The World


Video tags

Video description


Perdido is the deepest floating oil rig (platform) in the world at a water depth of about 2450 meters operated by the Shell Oil Company in the Gulf of Mexico. The Perdido is located in the Perdido fold belt which is a rich discovery of crude oil and natural gas that lies in water that is nearly 8000 feet deep. The platform's peak production will be 100,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day. At 267 meters, the Perdido is nearly as tall as the Eiffel Tower. An oil rig is a large structure with facilities to drill wells, to extract and process oil and natural gas, and to temporarily store product until it can be brought to shore for refining and marketing. In many cases, the platform contains facilities to house the workforce as well.

liquidthex : "The oil industry has learned its lesson" hahahaha
J Said : And we all complain about gas prices while we sit on our fat*sses. After seeing videos like this, it's safe to say that oil companies actually deserve government subsidies. And if you disagree with what I just said, go ahead and start a company and drill!
Cole Fowler : Its funny all the hate this video is getting, however I'm willing to bet most of those doing the hating are watching this video on a device powered by the very thing they're complaining about. -_-
