The Platform. Episode 4


Aleksandr Leshukov visits the doctor. The ship is equipped with a clinic that features the latest equipment; it's so large that the crew refers to it as his "penthouse". The crew talks about where and how the platform was built, and is tasked with lifting a massive pipe from the bottom of the seabed that weighs tonnes. How do they pull it off? We find out why seaman Dmitry Lobanov likes the platform more than the ships he's worked on. What is driller Sergey Kharakhorkin responsible for and why doesn't it allow him to be "a nice guy"? How big are the losses when the drilling grinds to a halt? How long does he think it will take the team to become a truly efficient team?
