1. “The closest thing to crazy”—the world’s deepest concert
(Check back soon for the film documentary of the world's deepest concert: "Katie Melua—Concert under the Sea")
The gas rig is actually much more futuristic and high-tec than I thought it would be. It reminds me a bit of “Aliens”, that’s kind of cool!”
3. Aasta Hansteen—the world’s largest spar platform
The world’s largest spar platform is named after the 19th century Norwegian painter and writer Aasta Hansteen, and has been built to produce gas from the field that lies in deep water, 300 km northwest of Sandnessjøen.
A spar platform floats vertically like a buoy in the water, and is anchored to the seabed. The solution makes it possible to develop the gas field located in waters 1300 metres deep. (A similar but smaller variant is seen in our Hywind floating wind turbines.)
6. The world’s highest oil price
As the lifeblood of the industrialised nations, oil has been the world’s most important source of energy since the mid-1950s. Its products underpin society, powering vehicles and air transport, supplying energy to the power industry, heating homes and supplying the raw materials for plastics and petrochemicals.
