    Film crew friendly oil rig location:

    Take a look at this oil rig possible film location just in to us here at The Location Guide. Let us know if you would be interested in the LM contact you has suggested this location. See below

    http://seaventuresdive.com/index.html

    Especially if its a fake drilling unit… all the foundations for an art department to work with minus all the regulations and permissions and pressure and oil safety blah blah blah that a real rig would make you go through… especially if its on the water.

    this is located 26km off shore from Semporna in Sabah, East Malaysia as part of the Sipadan / Mabul dive sites

    Hi Ben,

    I have just read your brief, we do not have any oil rigs on our books but could definitely research for you if you are potentially interested in shooting in Scotland?

    Our research fees for sourcing locations would be £400 per day, for your information.

    Do let me know if you are still looking for something suitable or if you have found somewhere already?

    If you still require options to be sent, can you please give me a bit more info as I know the locations will require more info to go on before they commit to allowing shooting to commence.

    How many shoot days?
    Stills or TV?
    Equipment to be used?
    Crew size?
    Number of models?
    What you propose to do on the drilling unit?
    How much rain and coverage?

    If you can get back to me with the above info, I can then put some calls out to see if we have anything suitable for you here in Scotland.

    I look forward to your response.

    With Kind Regards,
    Frances

    Hi Ben,

    I’m from Norway and I know of several places that have Oil rigs for either repair og destruction that can be used for filming. Contact med and I can provide pictures.

    Kind regards

    Hi Ben,

    If it’s of interest there are a few platforms that are being de-commissioned in a couple of areas around Scotland.

    As for your shot from the water, I know of 2 that are accessible by helicopter (15 minute fly time from base).

    Inverness would be YOUR fly in airport.

    Let me know if this is of interest and I can follow this up with some calls and images.

    regards
    Gordon

    Hi Ben,

    We have an on-shore training rig (originally an actual drilling rig) that has been used for numerous shoots (just add green screen) here in Stavanger, Norway. Feel free to contact me at your convenience.

    Best regards,
