A clash of cultures & a stormy descent – The Platform Ep.4

The drillers work hard to disassemble the rig so that it can be moved to a new site. However, moving huge pieces of equipment weighing many tons with absolute precision proves difficult. Tempers flare more than once. A large storm packing high winds and waves two metres high hits at just the wrong time, causing a massive 360-ton blowout preventer to sway as it is being lowered onto the drilling floor. The crew members fear losing their bonuses if they botch the job – or even being sent to Siberia.
