Abstract:

As the world's insatiable need for oil and gas grows, companies are going deeper into more hostile environments than ever before. In this never-ending race that's pushing technology to the breaking point, working on a rig has become a highly risky operation. "These men could get hurt every day," says one of the rig leaders, "because this is steel - men versus iron - and iron does not give." Super Rig explores the many dangers of the rig for its workers.
