   The world is running out of oil but the rusty 17-year-old Pioneer could be the key to unlocking the Earth’s last oil reserves. We follow her extreme makeover as she’s converted into a state-of-the-art FPSO, a Floating, Processing, Storage and Offloading vessel. Capable of extracting deep-sea oil too dangerous for traditional oil rigs, if the makeover succeeds, the Pioneer will tap oil wells that lie at a record breaking 2.6km under the sea.
