    Hi Michelle,

    I did some research about filming in a Sea oil rig years ago, although we didn’t shoot there finally. I got some feedback from Scotland, India and Mexico. It was a complex location with lots of safety restrictions and logistics limitations. In that research the best option we were handling was in Scotland ( Cromarty Firth?). Maybe the Scotish Film office can provide to you updated information about filming in an Oil Rig.

    Good luck!

    I can help you organize a shoot on an oil rig in Norway. We even have “oil rigs” on land in Norway for training purposes.

    Please send me some detailed information about your project (dates, size of crew, what areas of an oil rig are you looking for) and I can help you. I have several contacts in the oil industry. A storyboard would also be helpful.

    You can send info to
    Also, feel free to call me if you have an questions.

    All the best,

    Would a location in INDIA be of interest for you to shoot ?
    Then we could proceed further to show you an Oil Rig where you can shoot

    Hello Michelle. You can shoot on the platform in the Baltic Sea, close to UK or Norway and the look is compare to North Sea :). I’m after unofficial talks and shooting there is possible. I have the experience in difficult industry’s locations shoots, like steel works etc., so i hope i know how to talk to these people. See attached image – it is our Baltic platform :). Don’t hesitate to mail or call me for further questions. Best regards, Mirek. Mail:, mob.: +48 502 52 16 16.
