Oil is the lifeblood of the world's economy, and it's up to the MEGA MOVERS to make sure its flow is uninterrupted. Off the coast of Singapore, one of the largest and most unusual ships ever built prepares to transport an entire 22,000-ton oil rig to the Gulf of Mexico. Making the 14,000-mile trek across two oceans will test the skills of both man and machine. And in Alaska, the pressure is on to move an 80-by-60-foot pump station on the Trans-Alaskan pipeline. But an approaching winter storm threatens to stop this move cold. Will these vital oil industry components successfully reach their destinations?
