Very few films really portray what it looks and feels like to work in the offshore industry, but Maersk clearly put some effort into this and did an amazing job at it.
At one point in the film they are shooting from the Maersk Deliverer’s rig floor at night with the lights reflecting against rain that was coming down through the derrick, then they sequence over to the rotary table as they are putting pipe dope on a new drill bit. It reminded me of more than a few tours I spent trying to stay warm on the drill floor and to be quite honest, made me realize how lucky I am to have been an operational part of this industry and seen for myself some of the amazing work that happens out there on a daily basis.
This film does not an exaggerate, it’s just the way it is. Whether it’s pouring down rain, freezing cold, in heavy seas, or in the middle of the night, offshore exploration operations continue around the world and truly push the envelope of technology.
