Off-Shore Oilrig "North Cormorant"
1859 succeeded Colonel Drake in Pennsylvania / USA, the first successful oil well in 21 m soil depth. Until 70 years later ventured the step from the land into the water. 1927, made in California, the first off-shore drilling (offshore = from the coast) in a water depth of 6 m. The oil policy of OPEC countries made the oil exploration and production always interesting to water. Worldwide there are now about 380 rigs in the offshore area in operation. Besides the North and Central American coasts, a second priority area was developed in the North Sea. In 1975, the first production could be included in the Forties field. The substructure of the North Cormorant was dragged in early 1980 to its destination, 160 km north-east of the Shetland Islands. After he was anchored with 32 giant steel nails in the sea floor, he had covered the record distance of 1400 km voyage from the shipyard in France Cherbourg. The entire production platform was installed in the period from May to August 1981 and began operating in December. The produced oil and gas is passed through pipelines to the mainland. The platform deck has a total area of ���?��?����?��?�4,000 m². The gigantic base exceeds a height of 170 m and a weight of 24,500 tons of all his predecessors in the history of North Sea oil. During the construction period, the North Cormorant housed 240 men. Today, more than 100 sailors are on duty in all weathers..
