Water Depth?[edit]

How deep is the ocean bed where the platform drilled, and how does it compare to Gulf rigs such as the BP platform that exploded? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:03, 10 June 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]


I have a feeling the Troll platform at 652,000 tons is now the re-- 18:21, 30 September 2005 (UTC),.mm./mm/////Reply[reply]

moved. The Hibernia platform comes in at about 500,000. --Csnewton 16:32, 14 Apr 2005 (UTC)

The Hibernia is still heavier. The Troll is taller and the highest object ever moved, but Hibernia weighs over 1 million tons compared to troll's 650,000 tons. Jcmurphy
Can you provide a source or reference for the mass of the Hibernia? Troll is not the tallest structure moved, it has since been surpassed by the Petronius Platform (472 m versus 610 m). --Csnewton 19:15, 14 Apr 2005 (UTC)
I found this - How big is Hibernia. As with most platforms, the gravity base structure is moved on its own. The total mass moved was 600,000 tons. Once the base was in place they added the ballast and topsides, another 600,000 tons bringing it to 1.2 million tons. Troll was moved with much of the topsides in place at 656,000 tons they then added ballast to bring the total weight to 1,050,000 tons - The Troll Platform --Csnewton 20:37, 14 Apr 2005 (UTC)
Hibernia was moved from Newfoundland to the Grand Banks with all of the topsides installed and mated to the GBS. The Guinness Book of Records (1997) lists Hibernia as the heaviest object ever moved. The GBS alone at Hibernia was over 660,000 tons (see
Yes, Hibernia was moved with some of the topsides in place. The Hibernia page I provided may be more reliable than the engineering firms' site you provided, not certain though. Troll was moved in 1995/1996, and the 1997 Guinness was published in 1996. Do you have a more recent edition? Why not just put in "One of the largest..."--Csnewton 19:27, 17 Apr 2005 (UTC)


Why was the page on the platform itself moved, without moving any of the information or pictures along with it? It's the world's largest oil platform and ought to have more than a small mention in the introduction of the article. --Joffeloff 20:11, 14 January 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The Norweigan Gullfaks C platform was 1,5-1,6 million tons with out balast when it was towed into the North Sea in 1994. But the Troll A is still considered to be the largest object moved by man. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:26, 10 December 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Blacklisted Links Found on the Main Page[edit]

Cyberbot II has detected that page contains external links that have either been globally or locally blacklisted. Links tend to be blacklisted because they have a history of being spammed, or are highly innappropriate for Wikipedia. This, however, doesn't necessarily mean it's spam, or not a good link. If the link is a good link, you may wish to request whitelisting by going to the request page for whitelisting. If you feel the link being caught by the blacklist is a false positive, or no longer needed on the blacklist, you may request the regex be removed or altered at the blacklist request page. If the link is blacklisted globally and you feel the above applies you may request to whitelist it using the before mentioned request page, or request its removal, or alteration, at the request page on meta. When requesting whitelisting, be sure to supply the link to be whitelisted and wrap the link in nowiki tags. The whitelisting process can take its time so once a request has been filled out, you may set the invisible parameter on the tag to true. Please be aware that the bot will replace removed tags, and will remove misplaced tags regularly.

Below is a list of links that were found on the main page:

 Resolved This issue has been resolved, and I have therefore removed the tag, if not already done. No further action is necessary.—cyberbot II NotifyOnline 20:05, 9 April 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]
