303 m (994 ft) – Katie Melua, one of the UK’s most popular female artists, performed a concert for staff of the Statoil Troll A gas rig (North Sea) on October 2, 2006. The Gig on the Rig which took place at the bottom of one of the rig’s legs at a depth of over 300 m (984 ft) was to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Norwegian gas production company. With a height of 472 m (1,549 ft), the Troll A platform is the tallest and heaviest structure ever moved by mankind. The platform stands on the sea floor where the depth is 303 m (994 ft).
