Shell Prelude Project (Western Australia)



Shell's Prelude Project (above) is not only the largest floating offshore facility ever constructed, it is also the world's first Floating Liquefied Natural Gas (FLNG) platform.

BP Thunder Horse Project (Gulf of Mexico)



Weighing in at over 59,000 tons, the Thunder Horse semi-submersible Production, Drilling and Quarters (PDQ) facility is still among the largest platforms of its kind in the world. Five decks stretch 15 stories above the water's surface. Jet engines that typically would be found on an airliner drive five turbines to power the facility - enough electricity for 80,000 homes onshore.
