Troll A was built by Norwegian Contractors for Norske Shell, with base construction beginning in July 1991 at a cost of 4150 million NOK, or approximately US$650,000,000 at the time. The base and the deck were built separately, and were joined in 1995 while the base was partially submerged. The base is a Condeep gravity base structure built from reinforced concrete. The Troll A platform is a condeep offshore natural gas platform in the Troll gas field off the west coast of Norway. It is the tallest structure that has ever been moved to another position, relative to the surface of the Earth, and is among the largest and most complex engineering projects in history. The platform was a televised sensation when it was towed into the North Sea in 1996, where it is now operated by Statoil. Don't forget to SUBSCRIBE for more documentaries like this one.

Martin Bachmann, head of E&P for Wintershall stressed the need for clarity in Germany’s natural gas policies, both with regards to its energy policies and its upstream regulations in order to better plan investments.
July 29 -- The first liquefied natural gas tanker ship passed through the expanded Panama Canal on July 25, hauling gas from the U.S. Gulf Coast. The shortcut means less time and money spent getting American gas across the Pacific. Natural gas already has a lot going for it -- it's cheap, burns cleaner than other fossil fuels and it's plentiful. The new route just adds to why LNG may be the fuel of the future. Like this video?

150 natural gas production platforms are installed in the Dutch sector of the North Sea. They produce gas from small fields, which is crucial in maintaining a decreased dependency on foreign gas. These platforms can be vital in distributing the electricity of wind farms at sea. Because in the future, energy will mainly be generated by off-shore wind farms. Far away and out of sight. Transporting the electricity to land requires a new, expensive infrastructure. A and the construction of new substations. A multi-billion investment. Through the use of the existing off-shore oil and gas rigs, there is a cheaper and more sustainable solution to this. Some rigs can be converted into substations so they can act as auxiliary stations, or a “hub”. The transport cables can then be laid from platform to platform, along the existing, and permanently monitored, natural gas pipelines. Allowing wind energy to be transported from wind farms to land with less loss of power. Another advantage is that platforms can then generate energy for their own machinery from wind rather than natural gas. This minimizes CO2 and other emissions. Making our natural gas production cleaner. In the longer term, this combined infrastructure can be expanded, to form the basis of future wind farms even further off-shore. This will help to reduce the cost of installing these new farms. And this type of new, integrated infrastructure presents new opportunities. Such as connections to other countries. What’s more, in the future, an excess peak in electricity production can be converted to gas. This is called Power to Gas. This gas can be injected into the existing gas transport system. If necessary in the future, CO2 can also be stored in empty - gas fields offshore by using the natural gas infrastructure of pipelines and platforms. Collaboration between the gas and wind sectors in the North Sea also means sharing equipment for transport and maintenance. Another opportunity to save costs. Geological and ecological knowledge can also be shared. As has been agreed non-functioning platforms will be dismantled and cleaned up. But this can blocks new opportunities. Such as exploiting the 125 currently undeveloped gas fields offshore. And it slows down the expansion of affordable off-shore wind energy. Synergy between gas and wind creates an integrated energy system: the generation, storage and transport of energy. Thanks to Power Park North Sea!

Biggest Oil Platform Rigs in the World as of 2017 As oceans swell around them, some of the world's tallest manmade structures live in water, not on land. There's not a whole lot of variety when it comes to this manmade mammoths of the sea. Most of theses mega-builds draw oil from the depths, the only purpose as yet discovered that's lucrative enough to pay for their out-sized cost and complicated engineering. One more thing they have in common is that they all can wow with impressive size. We look at seven of the most intense and impressive offshore structures across the globe. [for text and creatives, http://loloha.com/biggest-oil-platform-rigs-in-the-world-as-of-2017/] Berkut While the Berkut oil platform toils in near anonymity in Russia's Far East, it does so with a heft unlike any other rig. At 200000 tons, the Bekut holds the record for the biggest in the world, above water. It can work under its own power down to minus-47 degrees Fahrenheit, withstand chunks of floating ice up to six feet thick and shake off waves up to 60 feet high. Stones While Berkut may prove the heftiest above the water, Stones, opened in September 2016 and operated by Shell, goes the deepest of any offshore structure, reaching a staggering 9,500 feet underwater. Located in the Gulf of Mexico, the Stones above-water structure—significantly more boat-like than your average oil rig—was built in Singapore before making the cross-ocean trip to its current location. There, it ties to two wells, with plans to expand to six over time. Stones uses a flexible "steel lazy wave riser" to carry oil and gas to the top, with the bend in the piping absorbing the motion of the structure. Perdido Until Stones opened just months ago, Perdido—also located in the Gulf of Mexico and operated by Shell—was the deepest of all the offshore structures, dropping its roots a dizzying 8000 feet (one and a half miles) underwater. Built in Finland before making its trek to about 200 miles south of Galveston, Texas, the main structure—which sits mostly underwater—stretches about 875 feet, about the same height as the Eiffel Tower. Olympus, or Mars B Weighing 120000 tons—more than 300 Boeing 747 jets—the 2014 built Olympus Mars B development in the Gulf of Mexico sits in 3,100 feet of water. From the base of the hull to the top of the derrick, Olympus is 406 feet tall and has a combined deck area of 342000 square feet, taller and with more floor area than the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans. Troll A The 1,548 foot tall Troll A platform off the west coast of Norway includes 1,210 feet of structure below the water's surface. Along with impressive height, when the platform moved over land into the North Sea in 1996 in a seven-day process, it became the largest object to ever be moved by man across the earth. Petronius If you're looking for tall oil rigs, look no further than the Gulf of Mexico where you'll find the Chevron-operated Petronius. The platform's piled tower design gives the whole structure a height of 2001 feet, but with only 246 feet visible above water. The 43000 ton structure hovers above the seabed which lays 1754 feet below, and the underwater structure can sway in excess of two percent of its height. Hibernia The world's first iceberg-resistant gravity-based structure, the Hibernia platform includes a 41000 ton topside facility mounted on a 660000 ton gravity base structure, which literally sits on the seabed. The largest offshore platform in Canada, the Hibernia can withstand a six-million-ton iceberg, and has an iceberg management system that works to detect the movements of incoming ice and alter its path away from the structure. Baldplate Located off the coast of Louisiana, Baldplate was the first ever free-standing offshore compliant tower. Designed by Hudson Engineering in Houston, Texas, Baldplate stands in an impressive 1,650 feet of water. Its production peak was reached in 1999. Blue Whale One China’s homemade deep-sea drilling platform. China’s sixth-generation homemade deep-sea semi-submersible drilling platform has successfully completed its deep-sea trial, local media reported, marking a further improvement in China’s capability of manufacturing high-end deep-water drilling rigs. With a length of 104.5 meters, a width of 70.5 meters and a height of 105.8 meters, the platform is able to operate in water depths up to 1500 meters and drill as deep as 9144 meters. It is so far the world’s most advanced drilling platform.

Animation from Taiwan's Next Media shows the natural gas leaking from French Energy company Total's platform in the North Sea, less than 109 yards from a flare. Total have dismissed the risk of a blast at the platform, 150 miles off the east coast of Scotland. The British government said the flame had to remain burning to prevent excess gas pressure from building up. But the leak has been described as an explosion waiting to happen, from an energy consultant. Total has said it has identified the source of the gas leak, which is on a platform above sea level, but engineers say it's important to identify the source of gas before repairing the leak

- Like our Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/oilvips - Oil and gas are generated from a source rock, organic matter buried in the depths of the earth. Once formed, they climb back towards the surface. On their way, cap rocks can impede their progress and they accumulate in reservoir rocks. Here they constitute hydrocarbon fields, which can be identified by interpreting seismic data (a sort of echography). The data is obtained with the help of a seismic ship. To confirm the interpretations of seismic data, two types of drilling gear exist. Each is adapted to a range of depth of water (down to more than 2500 meters). The platform seen here is a semi-submersible, which floats and retains its stabilised position by means of anchors fixed on the seabed. Platforms at sea are used not only for drilling but also for the production of hydrocarbons. This production consists of the separation of oil, gas and water, before the oil and gas is taken by pipeline towards a mainland terminal. Where it is impossible or too expensive to link the field to the coast by a pipeline, an FPSO ship is used (Floating Production Storage and Offloading barge). Onboard, the hydrocarbons and the water are separated. The oil is stored prior to being loaded on tankers and the gas is re-injected into the reservoir rocks. Gas from a field is taken to land through an underground gasoduct to a processing plant. There, if the gas is to be transported by sea, it is converted into liquid obtained by cooling it down to --163°C. When it arrives at the plant terminal, the liquid natural gas (LNG) is returned to its gaseous state in a re-gasification plant, before being introduced into the local gasoduct network. The LNG is stored in tanks before re-gasification. The crude oil is transported in a petroleum tanker, the capacity of which can attain 200 000 tons. It is commonly called a "super- tanker". The terminals capable of receiving such giants are few and far between. The ships used to transport the crude oil produced on an FPSO ship are of a much smaller capacity. The crude oil, before being refined, is stored in the port in the large capacity tanks. The natural gas is preserved in reservoirs (artificial or natural). It is ready to be injected by pumping into the gasoduct network for industrial and domestic use or as fuel in power-generating stations. As far as the crude oil goes, it is transported by oleoduct to the refinery. There it undergoes a number of transformations and blending. A variety of finished products are obtained (LPG, petrol, kerosene, diesel ...), or naphtha, which will be used as the basis for the composition of plastic products by complex petroleum chemistry. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Like our Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/oilvips Twitter: https://twitter.com/oilvips And Don't forget to subscribe to our channel

http://www.euronews.com/ The French oil giant, Total, has dismissed the risk of a blast at its Elgin North Sea platform despite efforts continuing to stem leaking natural gas. The firm says a flame on the rig off the east coast of Scotland has to remain burning to prevent excess gas pressure from building up. According to Total's spokesman Pierre-Emmanuel Saulnier the material being thrown into the atmosphere is not dagerous or excessive: "it's around 30 cubic metres. That's about the size of half an articulated lorry. It's too much of course, but it's not going to have a significant impact on the environment." Total is said to be considering drilling a relief well that would allow the flow of gas to be shut off, or blocking the well with heavy mud. Either way, some experts say an "explosion is waiting to happen." Environmentalist, Benoit Hartman, from France Nature said: "Hydrocarbons are becoming more and more difficult to find as they're drying up. So we're having to look for non-conventional hydrocarbons which are difficult to extract and normally aren't profitable. But now they're becoming so because fuel prices are increasing. This means we can expect more accidents like this." The Scottish government has called for more information from Total as memories are still raw in the North Sea industry of the Piper Alpha platform fire 24 years ago, when 167 people were killed in the world's deadliest offshore oil disaster.

North Sea platforms can be used to generate green Geothermal Energy, George E. Lockett said in this video recording of his All-Energy 2012, Geothermal Session Presentation. The presentation goes into details of why the North Sea is a good location by describing that the Earth's Crust gets thinner as we move offshore. There is also cold sea water for condensation of working fluids. Lockett describes how Enhanced and Secondary Oil Production can be created by steam flooding oil reservoirs, after generating electrical power from the geothermal fluids to extract heavy oils and tars. High Pressure High Temperature (HPHT) Fields -- these may be some of the best locations for geothermal energy and they are about 150 miles east of Aberdeen. He describes how power can be generated from Natural Gas flows at high pressure, as the pressure is reduced; and how this can be done where gas mains change pressure to service the domestic market too, using a Gas Letdown Generator. The geothermal power can be connected to the national grid or used to generate hydrogen by electrolysis. Lockett describes how some of the £30 billion decommissioning budget for the North Sea could be used to extend the life of Platforms by creating a new Geothermal Energy Industry. This new geothermal industry would employ thousands of workers in new productive jobs in the offshore and on-shore support industries.

Don't forget to SUBSCRIBE for more documentaries like this one. A fixed platform is a type of offshore platform used for the production of oil or gas. These platforms are built on concrete and/or steel legs anchored directly onto the seabed, supporting a deck with space for drilling rigs, production facilities and crew quarters. Such platforms are, by virtue of their immobility, designed for very long term use. Various types of structure are used, steel jacket, concrete caisson, floating steel and even floating concrete. Steel jackets are vertical sections made of tubular steel members, and are usually piled into the seabed. Concrete caisson structures, pioneered by the Condeep concept, often have in-built oil storage in tanks below the sea surface and these tanks were often used as a flotation capability, allowing them to be built close to shore (Norwegian fjords and Scottish firths are popular because they are sheltered and deep enough) and then floated to their final position where they are sunk to the seabed. Fixed platforms are economically feasible for installation in water depths up to about 1,700 feet (520 m). Don't forget to SUBSCRIBE for more documentaries like this one.

As global demand for natural gas grows, companies are using advanced technology to transport it from source to customers. Gas can be piped over relatively short distances. But cooling the gas to -162°C (-260°F) turns it to liquid for easier, safe shipment to faraway markets overseas. Shell provided the natural gas for the first liquefied natural gas (LNG) project more than 50 years ago. Today the world's largest provider of LNG, Shell continues to develop innovative approaches to unlock new resources of natural gas.

FPSO – The future of Oil & Gas- FPSO fundamentals & advantages Let us talk about FPSOs and why they are the future for the offshore Oil and Gas industry. In this short video I will explain what FPSO actually means and outline what advantages there are compared to an offshore platform. The letters FPSO stand for Floating, Production, Storage and Offloading vessel. Sometimes they are newly built and sometimes a converted ship, mostly an oil tanker. It is a floating unit with crude oil and natural gas won from the sea bottom. On deck of the ship a first form of oil refinery takes place, after having separated oil, water and gas. The storage takes place in the vessel´s double hull before offloading to other transportation ships so named shuttle tankers or through subsea pipelines. An FPSO is anchored to the sea bottom to fix it on its chosen location. In order to be resistant to weather and wind, sea currents and heavy conditions one can choose to apply a single mooring, through which technique the FPSO can rotate freely. So exactly when do we use an FPSO? An FPSO is highly suitable for deepwater and ultra-deepwater fields. An FSPO is most of the time connected to several subsea oil production wells and obtains the oil through in-field pipelines. Via these pipelines the oil is transferred to the storage compartment on the vessel. Now you understand what FPSO means and how it all functions. So let us move on the next step where I will now explain why FPSOs are the future of Oil & Gas by naming you several advantages. A floating production, storage and offloading vessel is a type of floating tank system designed to take all of the crude oil or gas produced from nearby platforms, process it and store it until the attained resources can be offloaded onto a tanker. The FPSO´s great advantage is that it can be moved freely and is therefore a more economical solution for more marginal fields, in that the vessel can be moved to another development and redeployed once the original field has been depleted. Additionally because FPSOs can be disconnected from their moorings, these offshore production vessels are perfect for areas that experience adverse weather conditions such as hurricanes. Also FPSOs are a great choice for development when there are no existing pipelines or infrastructure to transfer production to shore. Can you imagine? The average semi-submersible oil rig takes 3-4 years to kit out and build, and a jack-up rig 2-3 years. Meanwhile an FPSO could be rolled out in only a few months to a year. Furthermore FPSOs eliminate the need for costly and expansive underwater infrastructure. In a situation where laying pipelines is not a cost-effective solution, the FPSO is particularly well-adapted. FPSOs are ideal for deep water drilling Operators have to drill deeper than ever before to hit the black gold, and deep and ultra-deep waters are becoming the preferred choice for an oil-thirsty world. In such areas, where subsurface pipelines would be logistically challenging and export by shuttle tankers is increasingly expensive, an FPSO provides the best of both worlds as a tailored upstream and midstream unit rolled into just one. FPSOs do not have to be custom built Not like a fixed platform, an FPSO does not actually have to start its life as an FPSO. The first ever floating production, storage and offloading unit was an oil tanker in it´s former life, and many of its descendants are also vessels that have been converted from transporters to harvesters of Oil and natural Gas and this again has a great cost-saving benefit. And eventually a Floating, Production, Storage and offloading vessel is more y friendly compared to a fix offshore platform. While many rigs have been in operation for several years and have a permanent ecological footprint, an FPSO can be designed and redesigned for more environmentally friendly field operations. These are all significant advantages and reasons why an FPSO is nowadays the preferred choice for deep water drilling and the future of producing oil and natural gas. Since the 1970s FPSOs have been utilized in the North Sea, offshore Brazil, Asia Pacific, the Mediterranean Sea and West Africa.

Perdido is the deepest floating oil rig (platform) in the world at a water depth of about 2450 meters operated by the Shell Oil Company in the Gulf of Mexico. The Perdido is located in the Perdido fold belt which is a rich discovery of crude oil and natural gas that lies in water that is nearly 8000 feet deep. The platform's peak production will be 100,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day. At 267 meters, the Perdido is nearly as tall as the Eiffel Tower. An oil rig is a large structure with facilities to drill wells, to extract and process oil and natural gas, and to temporarily store product until it can be brought to shore for refining and marketing. In many cases, the platform contains facilities to house the workforce as well.

More than 100 potentially lethal oil and gas spills took place on rigs in the North Sea in 2009 and 2010. Serious spills of oil and gas from North Sea platforms are occurring at the rate of one a week, undermining oil companies' claims to be doing everything possible to improve the safety of rigs. GE Oil & Gas will supply three customized aeroderivative gas turbine-generator modules to provide reliable electric power for a new Chevron floating production unit that will produce oil and gas from the Jack and St. Malo fields in the Gulf of Mexico, approximately 280 miles south of New Orleans and at a water depth of approximately 7,000 feet.

Nasa 10-trilyong cubic feet ng natural gas ang potensyal na nasa ilalim ng West Philippine Sea. Sa ngayon, 10 taon na lang ang itatagal ng kasalukuyang supply sa Malampaya kaya naghahanap na rin ng ibang paghuhugutan ng natural gas sa naturang katubigan. Exclusive nagpa-Patrol si Alvin Elchico.

Andrew Benitz of Jersey Oil & Gas PLC (LON:JOG) says pre-funding the seismic being shot over the Verbier acreage in North Sea allows the data to be optimised and is cheaper. Capex for the appraisal programme will be at the upper end of £9-11mln including seismic. Drilling at Verbier will see an appraisal well in the summer to firm up the recoverable oil at the discovery. ''All in all, the North Sea is an exciting place to explore again'', said Benitz.

The Brent oil and gas field, operated by Shell, lies off the north-east coast of Scotland, midway between the Shetland Islands and Norway. It is one of the largest fields in the North Sea and is served by four large platforms. It has been a cornerstone of the UK's hugely successful oil and gas industry for 40 years. Now the Brent field is reaching the stage where almost all the available reserves of oil and gas have been retrieved. The next step in the lifecycle is to decommission Brent’s four platforms and their related infrastructure. As the operator, Shell is required to submit a decommissioning programme to the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy with detailed recommendations for closing down and making safe the four platforms and subsea infrastructure of the Brent field. Ten years of research, engineering studies, expert input, consultations and scientific assessments have gone into this process.

Russia, that holds significant part of resource-rich Arctic region, has offered India access to the Northern Sea Route that connects Europe with the Pacific Rim including additional supplies of natural gas and joint development of gas fields to meet New Delhi’s growing energy needs. Russian President Vladimir Putin made this announcement here on Friday in the presence of Prime Minister Narendra Modi while addressing a business summit. “…the Prime Minister and I discussed this earlier today; we welcome our Indian partners to join the work in the Arctic as well. This is a very promising, long-term and very serious project that looks decades ahead, one with good investment and good return. As the climate continues to change — in some places, this is good, and elsewhere perhaps not so good —the Northern Sea Route offers growing opportunities,” Putin said in his address. “We are building a nuclear-powered fleet, eight nuclear-powered ships, which will be steadily put into operation. This work is in progress. This will ensure reliable LNG supplies to the Indian and world markets. So this could be very interesting joint work,” he said. There was concrete reference to Indo-Russian partnership in the Arctic region in the joint statement issued after the annual summit on Friday. “The two governments also expressed support to companies from both sides ‘for development of cooperation and exploring opportunities for joint development’ of oilNSE -10.57 % fields in Russian territory, including on the Arctic shelf, and projects on the shelf of the Pechora and Okhotsk Seas.” Putin and Modi also discussed a 2017 joint study on possible gas supply routes from Russia to India, sources told ET. The Arctic contains a wealth of petroleum and mineral resources. Currently, the region produces about one tenth of the world’s oil and a quarter of its natural gas. The Russian Arctic is the source for about 80% of this oil and virtually all of the natural gas. The most developed sector of the region, the Russian Arctic also holds abundant deposits of nickel, copper, coal, gold, uranium, tungsten, and diamonds. Putin assured “our country has been and will be a reliable energy supplier for the Indian economy”. He noted joint projects in the field of supplies of LNG are of strategic importance.

From whaling ships in the north Atlantic, which provided valuable lamp oil, to the offshore drilling rigs that produce petroleum by the barrelful, humans have long looked under the sea for sources of energy. But how does the oil and gas industry find the bounty underground? How are operations sustained on the often hostile open ocean? This video presentation tells the whole story of offshore exploration, drilling, production, and transportation. It provides descriptions of mobile offshore drilling units, life on an offshore rig, drilling techniques, and transportation to and from the rig. Produced in cooperation with the API Audiovisual Committee and part of the PETEX-API Audiovisual Repository. *1993, 20 minutes, video production.*

The platform began production in 1976, first as an oil platform and then later converted to gas production. An explosion and resulting fire destroyed it on July 6, 1988, killing 167 men. Total insured loss was about £1.7 billion (US$ 3.4 billion). To date it is the world's worst offshore oil disaster in terms both of lives lost and impact to industry. At the time of the disaster the platform accounted for around ten percent of the oil and gas production from the North Sea.
