“Delta Divers: Racing the Storm” – Wednesday, May 26, at 9pm ET/PT
DELTA DIVERS is set in the vast offshore oil and gas infrastructure in the Gulf of
Mexico, home to more than 6,000 gas and oil platforms and 35,000 miles of
pipeline. The programs offer a unique view into what it’s like to live and work in
this remote and rarely seen world. It’s high-risk, high-pay work suited to those
with a mile-wide daredevil streak. And the commercial divers whose dramatic
stories are chronicled in these programs take on the toughest challenges,
working in the forbidding depths hundreds of feet beneath the surface of the
Part-astronaut, part-roughneck, these deep-sea divers are a breed apart. Although much of the job involves regulation blue collar work‚ welding, pouring concrete, rigging, hydraulics‚ it is performed alone and in such an extreme environment they may as well be on another planet‚ with only an ‚ umbilical‚ air supply connecting them to our topside world.
Living for months at a time in the cramped quarters offshore, each diving team considers itself a “family.” The bonds become very strong when you regularly put your life in the hands of a co-worker. At the same time, like in other families, tensions roil just beneath the surface. Divers compete to get the best dives. Tenders jockey to “break out” as full-fledged divers. And diving supervisors struggle to keep the whole operation going‚ when a momentary lapse of attention or one simple mistake can easily result in tragedy and at least one diver’s life is on the line with each plunge.
