Oil industry air breathing unit. Oil industry worker adjusting the settings on an air breathing unit on an oil and gas platform. Oil platforms are used to drill for and pump oil from below the Earth's surface, often from below the seabed. Many of the gases brought up with the oil are asphyxiating, so workers may need to use an air breathing apparatus. Photographed in the Gulf of Mexico.
