ExxonMobil has released a video showing what it is like to live and work on one of the world's largest offshore platforms, Hebron, located off the coast of Newfoundland and Labrador.

The Hebron project started production in November 2017. At its peak, the project will produce up to 150,000 barrels of oil per day.

Discovered in 1980, the Hebron field is estimated to contain more than 700 million barrels of recoverable resources. The Hebron platform consists of a stand-alone gravity-based structure, which supports an integrated topsides deck that includes living quarters and drilling and production facilities. The platform has storage capacity of 1.2 million barrels of oil.

The platform is located about 200 miles (350 kilometers) offshore Newfoundland and Labrador in water depths of about 300 feet (92 meters).

Hebron is operated by ExxonMobil affiliate, ExxonMobil Canada Properties, which holds 35.5 percent equity in the project. Chevron Canada holds 29.6 percent interest, Suncor Energy holds 21 percent, Statoil Canada has nine percent and Nalcor Energy-Oil and Gas Inc. has 4.9 percent.
