Most people who have seen oil rigs in movies or on the news are used to seeing a fire on top of the rig chimney. That’s because workers have to burn off the unwanted gases released by pressure valves. But how do they light that fire? They do it with a difficult flare shot.
Stein Ivar Vangberg posted this video in the summer, but it has only gone viral now with over 200,000 new views! It seems the worker completely missed the mark with her flare shot, but moments later it becomes apparent that she hit the perfect area to light the gas. Nice shot!
