Ruling on Deviating from Qibla while Praying

We are a team that works on a drilling rig in the Dead Sea area. We work different shifts six days a week. Unfortunately, we can`t stop the rig at prayer time and it moves half a circle left and right. It deviates (45) degrees right and left from the direction of the Qibla, so it becomes impossible for us to pray towards the Qibla because the rig keeps rotating. How can we pray while on this rig?

Ruling on Prayers Performed Facing the Incorrect Qiblah

A week ago, my sister had a surgery at King Abdullah`s Hospital and I had to stay with her for a couple of days.

When my brother came to visit, he told me that I was praying in the wrong direction, because his mobile`s compass points to another direction. Are my prayers valid?
