Mighty Ships allow viewers unprecedented access to everything above and below deck on the world’s most sophisticated vessels. From the mechanics of modern seafaring to the human dramas faced by the crew, each voyage is filled with high stakes and big risks. On most offshore projects, the work that goes into laying a natural gas pipeline, installing a platform foundation and landing the platform that will draw the gas up to the surface on top would be three separate jobs, completed by three different ships. Off the coast of Malaysia, Sapura 3500 lays a pipeline and builds an offshore gas platform in just three weeks.
