Mighty Ships: SEASON 8: EPISODE 5

Maersk Viking

Maersk Viking is a high-tech, ultra-deepwater drillship, capable of drilling in seas up to nearly 12,000-feet deep and able to bore seven miles into the Earth's crust. Hop aboard on her latest assignment, building an advanced well 200 miles south of New Orleans in the oil-rich Gulf of Mexico. It's a multi-billion-dollar job with many obstacles, including the remnants of a hurricane that will rock Viking hard and could put the mission, not to mention the 180-person crew, in deep jeopardy.
