Super Rigs: Troll Offshore Natural Gas Platform (Full Documentary)
Don't forget to SUBSCRIBE for more documentaries like this one. 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. Don't forget to SUBSCRIBE for more documentaries like this one.

World's Biggest Oil Platform Rigs 2017
Biggest Oil Platform Rigs in the World as of 2017 As oceans swell around them, some of the world's tallest manmade structures live in water, not on land. There's not a whole lot of variety when it comes to this manmade mammoths of the sea. Most of theses mega-builds draw oil from the depths, the only purpose as yet discovered that's lucrative enough to pay for their out-sized cost and complicated engineering. One more thing they have in common is that they all can wow with impressive size. We look at seven of the most intense and impressive offshore structures across the globe. [for text and creatives, http://loloha.com/biggest-oil-platform-rigs-in-the-world-as-of-2017/] Berkut While the Berkut oil platform toils in near anonymity in Russia's Far East, it does so with a heft unlike any other rig. At 200000 tons, the Bekut holds the record for the biggest in the world, above water. It can work under its own power down to minus-47 degrees Fahrenheit, withstand chunks of floating ice up to six feet thick and shake off waves up to 60 feet high. Stones While Berkut may prove the heftiest above the water, Stones, opened in September 2016 and operated by Shell, goes the deepest of any offshore structure, reaching a staggering 9,500 feet underwater. Located in the Gulf of Mexico, the Stones above-water structure—significantly more boat-like than your average oil rig—was built in Singapore before making the cross-ocean trip to its current location. There, it ties to two wells, with plans to expand to six over time. Stones uses a flexible "steel lazy wave riser" to carry oil and gas to the top, with the bend in the piping absorbing the motion of the structure. Perdido Until Stones opened just months ago, Perdido—also located in the Gulf of Mexico and operated by Shell—was the deepest of all the offshore structures, dropping its roots a dizzying 8000 feet (one and a half miles) underwater. Built in Finland before making its trek to about 200 miles south of Galveston, Texas, the main structure—which sits mostly underwater—stretches about 875 feet, about the same height as the Eiffel Tower. Olympus, or Mars B Weighing 120000 tons—more than 300 Boeing 747 jets—the 2014 built Olympus Mars B development in the Gulf of Mexico sits in 3,100 feet of water. From the base of the hull to the top of the derrick, Olympus is 406 feet tall and has a combined deck area of 342000 square feet, taller and with more floor area than the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans. Troll A The 1,548 foot tall Troll A platform off the west coast of Norway includes 1,210 feet of structure below the water's surface. Along with impressive height, when the platform moved over land into the North Sea in 1996 in a seven-day process, it became the largest object to ever be moved by man across the earth. Petronius If you're looking for tall oil rigs, look no further than the Gulf of Mexico where you'll find the Chevron-operated Petronius. The platform's piled tower design gives the whole structure a height of 2001 feet, but with only 246 feet visible above water. The 43000 ton structure hovers above the seabed which lays 1754 feet below, and the underwater structure can sway in excess of two percent of its height. Hibernia The world's first iceberg-resistant gravity-based structure, the Hibernia platform includes a 41000 ton topside facility mounted on a 660000 ton gravity base structure, which literally sits on the seabed. The largest offshore platform in Canada, the Hibernia can withstand a six-million-ton iceberg, and has an iceberg management system that works to detect the movements of incoming ice and alter its path away from the structure. Baldplate Located off the coast of Louisiana, Baldplate was the first ever free-standing offshore compliant tower. Designed by Hudson Engineering in Houston, Texas, Baldplate stands in an impressive 1,650 feet of water. Its production peak was reached in 1999. Blue Whale One China’s homemade deep-sea drilling platform. China’s sixth-generation homemade deep-sea semi-submersible drilling platform has successfully completed its deep-sea trial, local media reported, marking a further improvement in China’s capability of manufacturing high-end deep-water drilling rigs. With a length of 104.5 meters, a width of 70.5 meters and a height of 105.8 meters, the platform is able to operate in water depths up to 1500 meters and drill as deep as 9144 meters. It is so far the world’s most advanced drilling platform.

Explosion in the North Sea Piper Alpha Disaster
Don't forget to SUBSCRIBE for more documentaries like this one. Piper Alpha was a North Sea oil production platform operated by Occidental Petroleum (Caledonia) Ltd. The platform began production in 1976, first as an oil platform and then later converted to gas production. An explosion and the resulting oil and gas fires destroyed it on 6 July 1988, killing 167 men, with only 61 survivors. The death toll includes two crewmen of a rescue vessel. Total insured loss was about £1.7 billion (US$3.4 billion). At the time of the disaster, the platform accounted for approximately ten percent of North Sea oil and gas production, and was the worst offshore oil disaster in terms of lives lost and industry impact.

How to Decommission Brent
The Brent oil and gas field, operated by Shell, lies off the north-east coast of Scotland, midway between the Shetland Islands and Norway. It is one of the largest fields in the North Sea and is served by four large platforms. It has been a cornerstone of the UK's hugely successful oil and gas industry for 40 years. Now the Brent field is reaching the stage where almost all the available reserves of oil and gas have been retrieved. The next step in the lifecycle is to decommission Brent’s four platforms and their related infrastructure. As the operator, Shell is required to submit a decommissioning programme to the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy with detailed recommendations for closing down and making safe the four platforms and subsea infrastructure of the Brent field. Ten years of research, engineering studies, expert input, consultations and scientific assessments have gone into this process.

North Sea Oil - 1975
At Dyce near Aberdeen, Her Majesty the Queen presses the button that sends the first North Sea Oil flowing into the Grangemouth Refinery. It marks the fruition of years of research, technology, hard work and grim determination. From the Forties Field by under sea pipeline, a marvel itself in engineering, the oil comes ashore at Cruden Bay. It travels then by underground pipes to the BP Refinery at Grangemouth. To the people of Aberdeen oil has already meant a change in their life style, could it also be the turning point in Britain's economy.

Gas Platform Decommissioning | Strip Down
Don't forget to SUBSCRIBE for more documentaries like this one. A fixed platform is a type of offshore platform used for the production of oil or gas. These platforms are built on concrete and/or steel legs anchored directly onto the seabed, supporting a deck with space for drilling rigs, production facilities and crew quarters. Such platforms are, by virtue of their immobility, designed for very long term use. Various types of structure are used, steel jacket, concrete caisson, floating steel and even floating concrete. Steel jackets are vertical sections made of tubular steel members, and are usually piled into the seabed. Concrete caisson structures, pioneered by the Condeep concept, often have in-built oil storage in tanks below the sea surface and these tanks were often used as a flotation capability, allowing them to be built close to shore (Norwegian fjords and Scottish firths are popular because they are sheltered and deep enough) and then floated to their final position where they are sunk to the seabed. Fixed platforms are economically feasible for installation in water depths up to about 1,700 feet (520 m). Don't forget to SUBSCRIBE for more documentaries like this one.

Decommissioning in the North Sea
From the smallest Perenco Victor platform to the largest Shell Brent platforms, decommissioning in the North Sea will range from as few as 3 years to 20+ years. We expect at least 140 fields will cease production over the next 5 years, with a total of £55 billion (real terms) to be spent on decommissioning the UK Continental Shelf. With as many as 50 fields forecast to cease in 2016 alone, will new investment materialise or will the North Sea enter a new decommissioning phase? http://www.woodmac.com/analysis/mission-decommission-the-north-sea
