  • Huge Drilling Rig Transport | Mega Transports | Free Documentary

    48:14

    An drilling rig is towed around the world by a single tug.

    A brand-new drilling rig, worth 500 million dollar, has to go from South Korea to Europe. The problem: It is too gigantic for a heavy transport vessel. The solution: it’s being towed. By one single tug. It’s a true Mega Transport, halfway around the globe – all that in just 90 days.

    The Mega Transport starts in Ulsan, South Korea. West Bollsta was built here for 6 years – and is now ready to get to its operation site. But how should this beast be delivered? It’s 123 meters long and 76 meters wide. Its maximum drilling depth: incredible 12 kilometers! Way to bulky to be transported in a common way. Surprisingly, a rather small kind of boat is best for the job: the ALP Striker – one of the strongest ocean tugs in the world.

    The ALP Striker will pull the drilling rig across the oceans on arm-thick steel cables. They are so heavy that only the ship's own crane can move them. Connecting tug and rig alone takes a whole day.
    Once the drilling rig is towed to the tug, they’re embarking on a journey never before seen: around the cape of good hope. Navigation, pirates, wind and waves – there are many unpredictable challenges along the way. Once they have managed them all, the destination is in sight: the Canary islands.

  • Worlds largest offshore wind farm generates electricity for the first time | ITV News

    2:50

    A wind farm off the coast of Yorkshire, set to become the world's largest, has generated electricity for the first time.

    The turbines are being constructed 75 miles out to sea and will be able to power the equivalent of a million homes once it has been fully built.

    Those working on Hornsea Project One have said it lowest cost solution to generating clean energy.

    Project worker Duncan Clark told ITV News: The scale has transformed, we're now using much bigger turbines, we're now installing much bigger wind farms, we're also doing it much further offshore.

    He added: It's probably the best and lowest cost solution that we've got available to us.

    Megastructures - World’s Longest Subsea Pipeline | Engineering Documentary

    Megastructures - The World’s Most Extreme Railway:

    By two thousand and eight, Norway will be connected to the United Kingdom via a 1200 km super pipeline—the longest subsea pipeline in the world. But this connection is only a part of an enormous plan to tap into Norway’s second largest gas deposit, capable of providing 20% of the UK’s gas needs for decades to come. Located 3 km below the ocean’s surface and 120 km offshore, the deposit is beyond the reach of humans and all of the construction has to be completed by robots working against strong underwater currents, sub-zero temperatures and extreme wind and wave conditions. When tapped, the gas will be transported to one of the largest automated gas processing plants to prepare it for shipment to U.K. Each phase will put ingenuity and engineering to the ultimate test.

  • Shells offshore oil rig Auger world’s first tension leg platform operating in the US Gulf of Mexico

    3:54



    Donal rajasingam talks about AUGER: FROM DEEP-WATER PIONEER TO NEW ENERGY GIANT
    Back in 1994, Auger was the world’s first tension leg platform, operating in the US Gulf of Mexico. A true deep-water pioneer, it was the first to float in water, moored to the sea floor 830 metres (2,720 feet) below.
    When production from its fields started to slow, Auger looked destined for decommissioning. But in 2010 its fate took a dramatic turn.

    Using a new breed of seismic technology, Shell’s engineers discovered a whole untapped field – called Cardamom – hidden behind a vast salt deposit, 4 miles (6.4km) below the sea floor. To reach its oil, they drilled one of the world’s longest wells.

    In September 2014, Auger began producing energy from Cardamom – an extra 50,000 barrels of oil equivalent each day at its peak, to make it Shell’s largest net producer in the Gulf of Mexico.

    First oil production started ahead of schedule in September 2014 from the Cardamom field in the Gulf of Mexico. Oil from Cardamom is piped through the existing Auger platform, Shell's first deep-water tension-leg platform installed 20 years ago.

    With Cardamom's 50,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day peak production, the new field not only extends the life of Auger, it will also make Auger the company's largest net producing platform in the Gulf of Mexico.

    Since its installation 20 years ago, Auger has received upgrades to handle additional production from new discoveries through subsea systems. Our ability to safely tie new fields like Cardamom to existing platforms limits environmental impact by minimizing offshore installations and infrastructure footprint, as well as enables oil production from untapped, less economically-viable fields.

    Cardamom Project Overview
    Shell's use of the latest deep-water seismic technology led to the discovery of the Cardamom field beneath thick layers of salt more than four miles below the sea floor and undetectable by conventional seismic surveys.

    The Cardamom project is a subsea tie-back to Auger, Shell's first deep-water tension-leg platform (TLP) installed 20 years ago in the Gulf of Mexico. First oil production from Cardamom began in September 2014 ahead of schedule using three of five wells planned for the development. With Cardamom's 50,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day peak production, the new field not only extends the life of Auger, it will also make Auger the company's largest net producing platform in the Gulf of Mexico.

    Since its installation 20 years ago, Auger has received topsides upgrades to handle additional production from new discoveries through subsea systems. Our ability to safely tie new fields like Cardamom to existing platforms limits environmental impact by minimizing offshore installations and infrastructure footprint, as well as enables oil production from untapped, less economically-viable fields.

    The Cardamom field was discovered in 2010 using advanced state-of-the-art seismic technology allowing for deep subsurface exploration around existing platforms and infrastructure. The discovery was confirmed by drilling a well from Shell's Auger platform that broke records for length and depth, extending more than four miles below the seabed and more than three miles out from the Auger platform.

    Demonstrating the credibility of Shell's robust approach to operating safely and responsibly based on rigorous global standards and practices, Cardamom's exploration plan was one of two by Shell that were the first deep-water plans approved by the US Department of Interior after lifting the offshore moratorium in 2011 following the Macondo oil spill. Shell announced final investment decision to develop the Cardamom deep reserves on June 9, 2011.

    Oig Rig The World’s Largest Oil Rig – Big Bigger Biggest| National Geographic documentary
    This film reveals the technological leaps forward that have allowed the world’s largest Oil Platform – the Perdido Spar in the Gulf of Mexico - to be built. The Perdido Spar sits in deeper water than any other oil platform, in an ocean over 2 kilometres deep. This floating factory is capable of drilling in any direction, and in depths of up to 3 kilometres below the sea floor. At maximum production it can generate enough oil daily to fill 132,000 cars with petrol. This film explores how this groundbreaking structure was made possible through a series of six engineering breakthroughs. The film explores how six landmark oil platforms – including the Beryl Alpha platform - each feature a major technological innovation that allowed oil platforms to be built and survive in ever deeper waters. Using high-end computer generated imagery that makes up 50% of the film, this film reveals the incredible stories behind these structures and the inventions that have driven them deeper.

  • Biggest Oil Rig Ever: Worlds Largest Oil Platform Begins Production In Russia!

    2:13



    The world’s biggest oil platform has begun commercial production at the Sakhalin-1 offshore project in Russia’s Far East. The Berkut oil rig is expected to extract 4.5 million tons of oil annually.

    The Sakhalin-1 Consortium was formed in 1996 is the first major shelf project in Russia created under terms of a Product Sharing Agreement (PSA). The international consortium is made up of the US major ExxonMobil (30 percent), Japan's Sodeco (30 percent), Russia’s Rosneft (20 percent) and India's ONGC Videsh (20 percent).

    The total cost of the project is estimated to be $10-12 billion, making it the largest direct foreign investment in Russia.

    The Berkut platform is expected to produce 12,000 tons of oil daily or about 4.5 million tons annually, raising the total output of the Sakhalin-1 Consortium to 27,000 tons a day.

    Oil from the Arkutun-Dagi oil field will be processed at the Chaivo onshore treatment facility and then delivered by a pipeline to the DeKastri oil export terminal.

    The tax revenues from oil produced by the Berkut platform will provide Russia’s regional and federal budgets with no less than $9 billion over the next ten years.

    The project is also directly investing $5 million dollars in community, social and environmental initiatives with the aim to benefit the communities of the US Gulf Coast, as well as in South Korea, where the hull of the Olympus platform was built.

    The Hibernia Platform in the Canadian Atlantic

    Hibernia is an oil field in the North Atlantic Ocean, approximately 315 kilometres (196 mi) east-southeast of St. John’s, Newfoundland, Canada, in 80 m of water. The production platform Hibernia is the world’s largest oil platform (by weight) and consists of a 37,000 t (41,000 short tons) integrated topsides facility mounted on a 600,000 t (660,000 short tons) gravity base structure. The platform was towed to its final site, and 450,000 t (500,000 short tons) of solid ballast were added to secure it in place. Inside the gravity base structure are storage tanks for 1.2 million barrels (190,000 m3) of crude oil.

    The Petronius Platform in the Gulf of Mexico

    Petronius is a deepwater compliant tower oil platform operated by Chevron Corporation and Marathon Oil in the Gulf of Mexico, 210 km southeast of New Orleans, United States. A compliant piled tower design, it is 609.9 metres (2,001 ft) high, and was arguably the tallest free-standing structure in the world, until surpassed by the Burj Khalifa in 2010, although this claim is disputed since only 75 metres of the platform are above water. The multi-deck topsides are 64 metres by 43 metres by 18.3 metres high and hold 21 well slots, and the entire structure weighs around 43,000 tons. Around 8,000 m3 (50,000 barrels) of oil and 2,000,000 m3 (70 million cubic feet) of natural gas are extracted daily by the platform.

    The Perdido Platform in the Gulf of Mexico

    Perdido is the world’s deepest spar, and the second-deepest oil and gas production hub after Shell’s Stones development. Moored in around 2,450 metres (8,000 feet) of water in the US Gulf of Mexico, Perdido started production in 2010, opening up a new frontier in deep-water oil and gas recovery.

    The Berkut Platform in the Sea of Okhotsk on the Russian Pacific Coast

    Russia’s Rosneft and America’s ExxonMobil have launched a unique drilling platform in the Okhotsk Sea in Russia’s Far East. The world’s most powerful rig can drill within the radius of at least 7 kilometers.

    The drilling platform can withstand a 9 magnitude earthquake, waves of up to 18 meters and temperatures down to minus 44 degrees Celsius, Rosneft President Igor Sechin said. Berkut can also withstand floating ice up to two meters thick and has an autonomous power supply system. It has the largest superstructure on any rig. Weighing 200,000 tons it can drill a total of 45 wells.

    The platform is located 25 km offshore in waters up 35 meters deep. The drilling will be performed by means of a marine rig, which allows all-year-round drilling of wells.

  • What is the Largest Object Ever Moved by Man?

    3:08

    Thanks to Pepperonin for supporting us on Patreon and making this video possible! Support us here:

    Just off of the west coast of Norway sits the tallest and heaviest object that mankind has ever moved. It weighs 1.2 million tons (1.1 Mil metric tons), stands 1548 feet high (472 m), and is one of the most complex engineering projects in all of history. This object is known as the Troll A gas platform.

    This natural gas platform sits on the Troll gas field located 174 miles (280 km) off the western coast of Norway. Rather than construct this massive structure in place in the middle of the ocean, engineers decided it would be much easier to build it on land and then move it into the proper location. This ultimately resulted in 10 tugboats pulling the structure over water on this 174-mile journey.

    Royal Dutch Shell said on Wednesday it will go ahead with the world's deepest offshore oil and gas production project, pushing the boundaries of technology to produce hydrocarbons from nearly 2 miles (3.2 km) below the surface of the Gulf of Mexico.
    Coming three years after the Macondo oil spill disaster, Shell targets first production by 2016, demonstrating confidence in big offshore projects in spite of a downturn in oil prices.
    Shell's 100 percent-owned Stones field was discovered in 2005, some 200 miles southwest of New Orleans. It encompasses eight lease blocks in the Gulf of Mexico's Lower Tertiary trend, which is the Gulf's deepest, most challenging and most promising play, estimated to hold up to 15 billion barrels of oil.

    Ultra-deep wells, drilled in water at least 1.5 km (4,500 feet) deep, and often into several more kilometres of rock to the reservoir below, accounted for around half of all the world's new discoveries in the first half of last year.

    Troll A was built by Norwegian Contractors for Norske Shell, with base construction beginning in July 1991 at a cost of 4150 million NOK, or approximately US$650,000,000 at the time. The base and
    the deck were built separately, and were joined in 1995 while the base was partially submerged. The base is a Condeep gravity base structure built from reinforced concrete.

    The Troll A platform is a condeep offshore natural gas platform in the Troll gas field off the west coast of Norway. It is the tallest structure that has ever been moved to another position, relative to the surface of the Earth, and is among the largest and most complex engineering projects in history. The platform was a televised sensation when it was towed into the North Sea in 1996, where it is now operated by Statoil.

  • World largest semi-submersible cargo transport ship

    42

    Blue Marlin is the largest cargo transport ship in the world. It can carry up to 75,000 tonnes, measures 712 ft long and 138 ft deep, and has a deck the size of two football pitches. The deck is submersible and can be lowered 13 meters under the water's surface. The cargo is then floated into position before the deck raises by emptying its ballast tank. Blue Marlin set a record when it delivered the world's largest offshore structure, BP's Thunder Horse oil rig, to Mexico from Korea. Its next voyage will see it carry an aircraft carrier from Spain to Australia.
