14 The Russian Oil Platform Made By World Standards

The Russian Oil Platform Made By World Standards

Posted on April 24, 2011 by team

This is the story about a Sea Sleetproof Srationary Platform by the example of the oil derrick in the Caspian sea. It started its work in 2010 so it is quite new. The expected service life is about 30 years. Though the platform is located in the sea center the depth there is only 12 metres and the water is pure.

The derrick has 2 parts connected by the 74-metres bridge. 118 workers live in the dwelling block. Swimming, fishing and litter throwing is strictly forbidden, smoking is allowed only in one place. Workers could easily be fired for a cigarette butt thrown in the sea.

The name “sleetproof” is because of the winter ice that the derrick has to resist.

This hose poures the sea water used for cooling.

The emergency ship always runs about ready to evacuate people from the platform.

Workers get here by a helicopter in an hour.

Before flight they listen to instructions and put on life jackets.

Then instructions about accident preventions.

No way without helmets, special boots and jackets.

    Why is fishing not allowed? You’d think it would be a good way to relax after your 12 or whatever hours of shift are over.

    I have always wondered what one of these look like inside. This platform and dorm look nice and clean. Nice post.

    It sure appears to be a very environmentally responsible. Good work.

      But they still flare off gas! They claim to have a natural gas operation but the flare says they aren’t using it!

    indeed food in platforms is very good. The budget per day of these installations is of several hundred thousand dollars, so they don’t go cheap with food. I remember the Italian chef in the Croatian platform I worked at in the Adriatic sea, the professional espresso machine, and the New Year party. That was the only time I saw alcohol in the platform.

    Nice set up.

    At least Russia (and Cuba, Brazil, Mexico etc…) all know better than to push their oil rigs into deep water when they can drill in shallow water.

    The environmental terrorists here have pushed the drilling into deep water, just waiting for an accident to happen. Which of course, it did. Now there is almost NO US drilling.

    But odumbo the lawless (obama for ya’ll) is actually giving other countries money so THEY can drill in the Gulf of Mexico, and we can BUY their oil!!

    It’s not that socialism is so bad, but man, him pushing us there is gonna KILL US before we get there!!!!

    Keep up the good work. I never thought I’d be saying this, but show us it can be done.

    I’d work there any day!

    Finally some pictures that show that Russia is not some bankrupted country, with bad road, smelly people and rusted machines

    The ship we see is not a rescue boat, but a supply vessel. It’s task is to supply the platform with everything except workers.
    And just because the gas turbines uses exhaust boilers does not mean they don’t have emissions to the atmosphere.
