Construction of Perdido Oil Platform Rigs Imprimir

Perdido's hull and platform weigh around 55,000 tonnes — the decks alone are as big as two football fields — and it is moored in about 2,450 metres of water. The scale of the project demanded international expertise, with equipment brought in from around the world.

Oil platform
An offshore platform, also referred to as an oil platform or oil rig, is a l?rge structure with facilities to drill wells and extract and process oil and natural gas and export the products to shore.

Depending on the circumstances, the platform may be fixed to the ocean floor, may consist of an artificial island, or may float.

Remote subsea wells may also be connected to a platform by flow lines and by umbilical connections; these subsea solutions may consist of single wells or of a manifold centre for multiple wells.
