New Most Dangerous Jobs on a Drilling Rig: Averting a Drilling Catastrophe | Eps. 2 | Free Documentary

The Platform – Episode 2: Averting a Drilling Catastrophe | Engineering Documentary

Episode 3 – Dismantling the Drilling Rig:

A group of new crew members have arrived after 24 hours of rough seas. Boatswain Pyotr Deshkovich tells us why a boatswain and a sergeant major in the army are so much alike and how he must interact with his fellow crew members. He manages the loading process, which proceeds slowly and carefully as the crew moves tonnes of equipment to the drillers every day. Ultimately the platform encounters shallow gas and the decision must be made whether or not to move the Polar Star to avoid a drilling catastrophe. How do the crew members deal with living in such close quarters?

Russia’s ‘Polar Star’ drilling rig is among the biggest in the world, able to drill to unprecedented depths. The platform’s crew spend their days working with massive equipment on an artificial island exposed to the elements in the subarctic sea. Fortunes rest on striking gas in just 30 days, before the winter closes in. It’s a job that calls for discipline, determination and nerves of steel in an environment that can be deadly.
