This Is How An Offshore Oil Platform Is Constructed Out In Sea

What you’re looking at is the oil platform that is known as Bullwinkle. It is taller than the Sears Tower in Chicago by about 150ft and has been made using steel about ten times the amount of steel that has been used in Eiffel Tower.

It’s a wonder of the human engineering and is known as one of the marvels of the 20th century. In 1988, it was driven out into the Gulf of Mexico in 1988 and the process was captured on video. Check it out below and let us know what you think of this amazing feat that was performed decades ago.
