  • The Troll A platform is a condeep offshore natural gas platform in the Troll gas field. It is the tallest construction that has ever been moved to another position, relative to the surface of the Earth, and is among the largest and most complex engineering projects in history. The platform was a televised sensation when it was towed into the North Sea in 1996, where it is now operated by StatoilHydro. The Troll A platform has an overall height of 472 meters and weighs 656,000 tons and has the distinction of being the tallest structure ever moved by mankind A view from the South East of Troll A Platform.

The platform was a televised sensation when it was towed into the North Sea in 1996, where it is now operated by StatoilHydro. Gustave Eiffel, the Eiffel Tower is the tallest building in Paris.[1] More than 200,000,000 people have visited the tower since its construction in 1889,[2] including 6,719,200 in 2006,[3] making it the most visited paid monument in the world.[4][5] Including the 24 m (79 ft) antenna, the structure is 325 m
  • Ormen Lange is the largest natural gas field in development on the Norwegian continental shelf. The field is situated 120 km northwest of Kristiansund, where seabed depths vary between 800 and 1,100 metre. The reservoir is approximately 40 kilometres (25 mi) long and 8 kilometres (5 mi) wide, and lies about 3,000 metres below sea level. Proven gas reserves reach 397 billion cubic meter (bcm). Total cost is estimated to reach 66 billion Norwegian kroner (around US$12 billion) by the time of completion. The Ormen Lange field will be developed without using conventional offshore platforms. Instead, 24 subsea wellheads in four seabed templates on the ocean floor are connected directly by two 30 inches (762 mm) pipelines to an onshore process terminal at Nyhamna. After processing the gas will be exported by the world's longest subsea export pipeline - Langeled pipeline - approximately 1,200 kilometres (746 mi) from Nyhamna to Easington in England. The northern section of the export pipeline will have a diameter of 42 inches (1,067 mm), and the section from Sleipner to Easington will have a diameter of 44 inches (1,118 mm). Production started in October 2007. The field will produce 70 million cubic meter of natural gas per day. Gas from Ormen Lange will be able to meet up to 20% of Britain’s gas demand, for up to 40 years.

The MudCube is a “step change technology system” for very effective treatment of drilling fluids. The founders of Cubility,Trond Melhus and Jan Kristian Vasshus, have both been involved for years with operation and development of drilling systems. They identified the potential for new technology related to fluid treatment in 2004. The MudCube system were thereafter developed and tested during 2005 and 2006. In 2007 a full commercialization phase started and in the beginning of 2008 the first system will be in place at the Sleipner field (StatoilHydro) in the Norwegian continental shelf.
