Auger: Deep-water Pioneer

Learn more about Cardamom and Auger on /> Back in 1994, Auger was the world’s first tension-leg platform, operating in the US Gulf of Mexico. A true deep-water pioneer, it was the first to float in water, moored to the sea floor thousands of feet below. When production from its fields started to slow, Auger looked destined for decommissioning. But in 2010 its fate took a dramatic turn. Using a new breed of seismic technology, Shell’s engineers discovered a whole untapped field – called Cardamom – hidden behind a vast salt deposit, 4 miles (6.4 km) below the sea floor. To reach its oil, they drilled one of the world’s longest wells. In September 2014, Auger began producing new energy from Cardamom. This is the story of a legendary platform and the oil field that’s reinventing it – a success story unlike any other in deep water. Welcome to Shell’s official YouTube channel.

Waa Waa Waa......I'm proud to say I have worked on Auger many times since 97. It's a nice clean rig and despite what all you idiots say, offshore rigs pollute WAY LESS than your damn house heater or BBQ pit. We are monitored constantly by the Gov. for even a single drop of fluid going over-board. Go eat a mesquite tree

I have been to that place many times on a crew boat contracted out to shell

I am so proud to be part of this project for the last two and a half years.

The world's first TLP was that installed by ED Horton off Los Angeles. This was followed in late 70s in North Sea by Conoco Hutton TLP on which I, Craig Lang, was Conoco Staff Engineer. The concept is far too expensive and wrong in principle, fighting buoyancy instead of using it and just like standing under a load, and a multi-thousand tonne load at that! I saw a much cheaper solution in a conventionally moored semisubmersible that was approved by Shell Dr Paul Kerckoff and built in 2002 for Shell Na Kika. See for the MPSS as a FPSO, no turret!

Message to oil companies. Stop drilling new wells in the ocean. Why don’t you maximize and find and perfect all of the land based oil. This ocean rig things are way too inneficent and dangerous. Get back on land where humans belong, and make the system of the future. Seriously snap out of it

I can not believe that shell is boasting about a piece of rusty oily metal that will continue polluting

I find it shameful that Shell tuht so than would the world be in order. Shell has enough money for advertising, but Shell makes billions with oil all heard, but Shell is too little for secure pipelines from although there have been major environmental disasters.

I love engineering victories like this. Plus, a win for America... It's awesome living in an energy independent and economically superior nation.

See??? “There are only so many people Shell can employ”! Employees are SLAVES!The wage is the cause of world poverty and should be destroyed! All people on Earth should OWN ALL things, including corporations, which are SLAVE PLANTATIONS! If only America could say that, and say the wage is illegal, and stop it, it would immediately END WORLD POVERTY! Stop buying anything, and that will destroy it eventually, because the rich will have LESS INCOME! STOP BUYING especially from corporations! Pay more from the small businesses! But there aren’t many, see?? See how corporations cause world poverty, and all people should OWN all things, not just the rich! Capitalism is the cause of world poverty, and if you don’t believe it still, may God help you but He won’t! You’ll lose your jobs soon and won’t be able to ever get a new one, so you can see how EVIL capitalism is.

Boo stop killing the environment unsubscribe to shell they will cause us to die if they continue and if there gone you can just buy a electric car and charge it with solar power and if it rains take a bike gas stations you are obsolete

Hey shell instead of selling fuel build wind farms and turn gas stations into charging stations

So you're saying that you are drilling oil with a platform that should have been retired, but hasn't been because it can drill even more poluting oil to make a bigger profit for Shell and keep its investors happy?
Nice job
