The George Bush Library and ENSCO put together the following video going into detail the day-to-day operations on board the ENSCO DS-5, an ultra-deepwater drillship built by Samsung Heavy Industries in 2011 and operating in the Gulf of Mexico for Petrobras and Repsol.

Gives a pretty decent snapshot of life on a rig for those who haven’t had the opportunity to work on board one…
