This is just incredible!

488 metres long
105 metres tall
75 metres wide
600,000 tonnes when fully loaded - 6 times as much as the biggest US aircraft carrier

It won't hold the record though, that goes to the Seawise Giant which weighed 657,000 tonnes fully laden. It was scrapped in 2009.

A clever solution; instead of a fixed platform it can be moved to the next field once the reserves have been harvested.
