I am sure we’ve all seen Mark Wahlberg’s Deepwater Horizon, or have friends or family working in the oil and gas industry who has an idea of what life is like on an oil rig.
Bringing in wads of cash, we can only imagine what life is like trying to mine liquid gold while fighting rough seas at the same time.
Sharing that experience, @faizalsani12 showed just how at risk they are to the elements when working on top of one of these oil rigs.
As you can see, being surrounded by bodies of water, waves do pose a threat to workers on oil rigs.
After announcing the evident danger that may present itself with waves of such magnitude, it was at this moment that the body of water became so great that workers on the oil rig had to run to save their lives.
As water rushed onto the platform, all the workers were able to do were to slip, slide and slam into random objects on the rig.
Responding to the Tweet, another netizen shared what took place on Platform Helang, Miri, Sarawak.
Again with the waves. Clearly, this is one of those that is not for the faint of heart.
However, it is all not bad weather all the time. According to @MuhammadAisyar, “Bad weather creates waves that crash on to the platform causing it to shake, putting fear in every man. But the best moments come when beautiful weather like this happens.”
Well, isn’t that better?
We are sure that there are good days and bad days when it comes to working off-shore. If ever you’re in the market or thinking of working on oil rigs we are sure there are a lot of perks you can enjoy if you choose this as a career.
