Shell Building Monster Sized Gas Rig

Shell is planning to build the world’s first floating natural gas platform.

The platform is huge: it will be the biggest floating object ever built.

It will take 5 years to construct, will be 1500 feet long, and will weigh 600,000 tons. Altogether, it’s about the size of 6 aircraft carriers.

It will take 110 people to run this behemoth.
