This short film shows how it is to work on an oil rig (Transocean Arctic) during a storm in the North Sea. You see the waves strike the heart of the rig. This film was made during a storm in late October 2006. Three Scottish fishermen lost their lives in the same storm. The height of the waves was estimated to 20 meters. Below you can see two photos of an oil rig (on Oseberg) during the same storm.
