- TITLE: Location North Sea (1974)
- RELEASE DATE: 01/01/1974
- SYNOPSIS: This programme tells the story of an unparalleled engineering and technological achievement; the towing of a steel structure weighing 30000 tons 250 miles out into one of the most treacherous seas in the world and then locating it precisely on the seabed 400 feet below. The structure was the first drilling/production jacket for BP's Forties oilfield - the location was the North Sea. To design and construct the huge jacket with its unique floatation raft called for skills which pushed forward the frontiers of engineering; to control and locate it on the seabed demanded the technology of a moon shot.
