Great Video Tool to Explain Offshore Operations

There is an incredible video online that gives non-industry people a real feel for offshore life.  It comes courtesy of European energy company Edison. It uses 360 degree video to show the company’s Vega A platform off the coast of Sicily.  The video technology allows the viewer to pan up and down and around in a 360 degree circle.  It starts with the view from a helicopter landing on the platform, tours the facility and even goes underwater with scuba divers to give the view from below.

The company has also  posted a second video that uses animation graphics to explain how the offshore platform works and the different processes that take place on the facility.

I know from personal experience how difficult it is to explain the complexity of offshore operations to people who aren’t in the industry.  This is a fantastic education tool!
