Automation speeds up design of offshore structures

3D models produced with Tekla software used by fabricators in various ways depending on how the fabrication facility is automated

First floating liquefied natural gas project

From the world’s first floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) project, to improved Brazilian output and successful Indonesian pilots, there is major investment in new production technology around the world. Eugene McCarthy reports

Transits and penetrations - not a 'fit and forget' issue

In more ways than one, a ticking time bomb of corrosion is hidden in the transit of pipes through bulkheads, decks and deckheads on offshore facilities. Ian Cordingley reports

Ship capable of lifting the topside structures from offshore platforms

‘Pack and go’ deep drilling is explosion protected

Deep drilling into the earth’s crust is carried out both for commercial reasons, such as exploration and production of natural resources like crude oil and natural gas. And also for scientific reasons, such as investigating the composition of the earth’s crust or to answer geothermal and geological questions. Dr Thorsten Arnhold reports.

Floating production vessel will process 100000 barrels per day

The 18-module, 11000-ton SeaRose topsides will process all produced fluidsand produce crude oil for cargo and natural gas for onboard fuel andreinjection back into the reservoir.

Meeting engineering and safety challenges at LNG terminal

The original peakshaving LNG storage facility at the Isle of Grain on the river Medway in Kent, UK, was completed in the early 1980s, and used two natural gas liquefaction plants to produce LNG.

Undersea advances, from ropes to deep-water repair robots

Allseas Group, a Swiss offshore pipelaying company, has collaborated with DSM Dyneema to improve the safety and speed of underwater pipe-laying using next-generation rope technology.

Extending platform life by using cementitious materials

Technical improvements in exploiting existing oil and gas fields and the continued high demand for hydrocarbons very often requires existing offshore structures to be modified and used beyond their design life.

Hydrates plugging prevention in production jumpers

In deepwater conditions, hydrates may form and plug production lines. There are currently two ways to avoid hydrates.

Modelling of gas fields: taking an integrated approach to natural gas production

The production of natural gas is a complex activity dependant on the many diverse relationships between reservoirs, topsides equipment and pipelines, which collectively or individually dictate deliverability.
