Caption: Oil drilling ship launch. The ship, which has been built here at the shipyard, has just been launched into a river. This river is in Tyumen, in western Siberia. The major river in the region is the Tura River. Oil was discovered here in 1948, and the oil industry forms a large part of the local economy. A drilling ship like this will be used to drill below the rivers and wetland areas for new sources of oil. Photographed on 6 May 2006.
