VIDEO: Take a look inside one of the world’s largest offshore oil platforms

Located off the coast of Newfoundland and Labrador, Hebron is one of the world’s largest offshore platforms. But what is it like to work and live in such a place, located hundreds of miles from the nearest land? Find out in the video below. 

The platform is located about 200 miles (350 kilometers) offshore Newfoundland and Labrador’s capital St John’s, in the Jeanne d’Arc Basin in water depths of about 300 feet (92 meters). The site consists of the Hebron, West Ben Nevis, and Ben Nevis fields.

Discovered in 1980, the Hebron field is estimated to contain more than 700 million barrels of recoverable resources. The Hebron platform consists of a stand-alone gravity-based structure, which supports an integrated topsides deck that includes living quarters and drilling and production facilities. The platform has storage capacity of 1.2 million barrels of oil.

First oil from the platform was produced in November 2017. At its peak, Hebron will produce up to 150,000 barrels of oil per day.

The Hebron project is operated by ExxonMobil (35.5%), and its partners are Chevron (29.6%), Suncor Energy (21%), Equinor (9%), and Nalcor Energy – Oil and Gas Inc. (4.9%).
