  • Environment or economics: Behind Obama’s decision on offshore drilling

    President Barack Obama’s decision against drilling for oil and natural gas off the Atlantic coast received scorn from both Republicans and industry lobbyists. As the price of oil drops and Iran increases its oil production, many wonder if Obama’s decision was an environmental one or an economic one. So what does that mean for the US consumer? And how will this affect the presidential elections? RT’s Ed Schultz is joined by Bart Chilton to discuss.

  • Economic Benefits & Environmental Impacts of Offshore Phosphate Mining in Namibia

    by: Alna Dall One Exclusive Phosphorous is the eleventh most common element in the world. It helps in the creation of our DNA, it is needed for your body to form bones and teeth. It is also an essential part of cell growth in plants. It can be found everywhere in products like carbonated drinks, detergents but more importantly, fertilizers. Although it occurs naturally in substances such as bone, ash, urine and animal manure, in order to keep up with the global demand for phosphorous, it has been mined for centuries from phosphate rock - a natural and non-renewable resource. There a few sites along the Namibian coast where large quantities of phosphate rock have been detected on the seabed floor...but mines have been unable to start dredging, due to a 18 month moratorium from Governm...

  • Offshore geotechnical engineering - Video Learning - WizScience.com

    "Offshore geotechnical engineering" is a sub-field of geotechnical engineering. It is concerned with foundation design, construction, maintenance and decommissioning for human-made structures in the sea. Oil platforms, artificial islands and submarine pipelines are examples of such structures. The seabed has to be able to withstand the weight of these structures and the applied loads. Geohazards must also be taken into account. The need for offshore developments stems from a gradual depletion of hydrocarbon reserves onshore or near the coastlines, as new fields are being developed at greater distances offshore and in deeper water, with a corresponding adaptation of the offshore site investigations. Today, there are more than 7,000 offshore platforms operating at a water depth up to and ex...

Time-varying volumes of the temperature and nitrate concentration, ocean current, as well as imagery, terrain, and 3D models of the OTEC plant are shown. About OTEC: Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) is a process used to produce electricity based on the temperature difference between deep cold seawater and warm tropical surface seawater. Because this temperature difference is small, large quantities of seawater are processed with the attractive benefits of firm base load (24/7) power production, no direct carbon emissions and an environmentally sustainable plant that can provide massive levels of energy.

The data gathered by Dr. Hubert and his team will be used to create a detailed profile of the population of marine microbes in Nova Scotia’s shores. This data will serve as a ‘baseline’ that offshore marine industries can use to monitor their environmental impact, such as identifying leaks or potential sources of contamination.

Stakeholders from the fishing industry demanded extensive research to be done on the impact such mining would have on not only the environment, but the fishing industry as well. We speak to Hans Huckstedt from LL Namibia Phosphates about the outcomes of these studies, the economic benefits and perceived pitfalls of phosphate mining, as well as THEIR role in a form of mining that has never been attempted before.

"Offshore geotechnical engineering" is a sub-field of geotechnical engineering. It is concerned with foundation design, construction, maintenance and decommissioning for human-made structures in the sea. Oil platforms, artificial islands and submarine pipelines are examples of such structures. The seabed has to be able to withstand the weight of these structures and the applied loads. Geohazards must also be taken into account. The need for offshore developments stems from a gradual depletion of hydrocarbon reserves onshore or near the coastlines, as new fields are being developed at greater distances offshore and in deeper water, with a corresponding adaptation of the offshore site investigations. Today, there are more than 7,000 offshore platforms operating at a water depth up to and exceeding 2000 m. A typical field development extends over tens of square kilometers, and may comprise several fixed structures, infield flowlines with an export pipeline either to the shoreline or connected to a regional trunkline. An "offshore" environment has several implications for geotechnical engineering. These include the following: Offshore structures are exposed to various environmental loads: wind, waves, currents and, in cold oceans, sea ice and icebergs. Environmental loads act primarily in the horizontal direction, but also have a vertical component. Some of these loads get transmitted to the foundation . Wind, wave and current regimes can be estimated from meteorological and oceanographic data, which are collectively referred to as metocean data. Earthquake-induced loading can also occur – they proceed in the opposite direction: from the foundation to the structure. Depending on location, other geohazards may also be an issue. All of these phenomena may affect the integrity or the serviceability of the structure and its foundation during its operational lifespan – they need to be taken into account in offshore design.

About OTEC: Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) is a process used to produce electricity based on the temperature difference between deep cold seawater and warm tropical surface seawater. Because this temperature difference is small, large quantities of seawater are processed with the attractive benefits of firm base load (24/7) power production, no direct carbon emissions and an environmentally sustainable plant that can provide massive levels of energy. Because a commercial OTEC plant has not yet operated, it is prudent and responsible for developers to study its effects on both temperature and nutrient concentration of the environment to ensure that they will be benign. Makai completed a numerical hydrodynamic model to study these effects by simulating the large discharges of OTEC plants in the ocean environment. The 4D-hydrodynamic model is based on the EPA-approved Environmental Fluid Dynamics Code and receives realistic oceanographic currents and density data supplied by the Hawaii Regional Ocean Modeling System. Dynamically coupled finite-element jetplume models simulate the entrainment and turbulent mixing of large OTEC plumes. The model is also being adapted to simulate any increased biochemical productivity that may occur because of the nutrient-rich discharges. Please see Makai's final report for the US Department of Energy here: http://www.osti.gov/bridge/servlets/purl/1055480/1055480.pdf For more information, contact Duke Hartman at duke.hartman@makai.com

This project is particularly relevant due to the recent attention attracted by Nova Scotia’s offshore oil from the oil and gas sector. The microbial world is the foundation of the marine food web and is especially sensitive and responsive to minor chemical changes in the marine environment. As a result, scientists can use information about population diversity among ocean microbes to assess the severity and impact of a marine contamination event, like an oil spill, relative to initial pristine conditions.
