Brazil's Newest Deep Sea Oil and Gas Exploration Platform.

PMXL-1, Brazil's biggest oil and gas sea exploration platform is in final construction stages. It will stand at 230m high (equivalent to a 70-story highrise). It will be capable of processing 15 million cubic meters daily and will start operation in Q1 2009. You can see a picture below (sideways, while it is being built). The platform is visible from the Rio-Niteroi bridge and it stands taller than the bridge.

The platform will operate in the Mexilhao field, in the Bacia de Santos area, off Sao Paulo's state northern coast. The platform is being built at a cost of $1.2B.
