Oil and natural gas are two resources that drive the world economies. In this article, let us review the 10 biggest offshore drilling giants in the world.
Oil and gas platforms or offshore drilling rigs are constructed for extracting, storing and processing petroleum and natural gas lying beneath the ocean floor. In this article learn about the 5 biggest oil platforms in the world.
Learn everything about jack-up barges including their history, working, types and much more in this article.
Single point mooring (SPM) is a floating buoy/jetty anchored offshore to allow handling of liquid cargo such as petroleum products. It serves as a link between the shore-facilities and the tankers for loading or off-loading liquid and gas cargo. Find out how SPM works in the article inside.
In this article, we will discuss offshore lifting operations and associated engineering analysis, safety precautionary measures, contingency plans, and challenges involved in lifting.
Offshore well drilling is a process of drilling a hole in the ocean floor for extraction of natural resources. It is a challenging part of the exploration and development process that is carried out in several stages.
The planned construction of an OTEC (Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion) power plant in the Southern Chinese high seas is set to become the largest power plant in the world. The power plant is intended to be a joint venture between two business giants, US-based engineering corporation Lockheed Martin and Hong Kong-based construction consortium Reignwood.
The Aguçadoura wave farm – the first of its kind- was put into operation in the high seas near the Portuguese city of Porto in the year 2008. The world’s first wave farm was the result of a pioneering effort between Pelamis, the British engineering giant, Enersis, a Portuguese company specialising in alternate energy development and an Australian company Babcock and Brown that provided the required substructure for the WEC.
Different types of oil production systems are used at offshore oil and gas exploration sites at the sea. Learn about the main types of offshore productions units that are used at oceans for oil and gas production.
