November 2, 2017 Please join the Center on Global Energy Policy for a discussion on the outlook for offshore energy production in a low oil price environment. Jason Bordoff, CGEP Founding Director, moderates the discussion and we are pleased to be joined by: Lars Christian Bacher, Executive Vice President, Development & Production International, Statoil Tommy Beaudreau, Partner, Environment, Land & Resources Department of Latham & Watkins and former Chief of Staff at the US Interior Department Antoine Halff, Senior Research Scholar, Center on Global Energy Policy Amy Jaffe, David M. Rubenstein Senior Fellow for Energy and the Environment at the Council on Foreign Relations Adrián Lajous, non-resident Fellow, Center on Global Energy Policy and former Director General o...
Stork deployed system scaffolding and significantly reduced Clients' costs, compared with traditional conventional material. Watch the video to find out more about the added value of using system scaffolding and the projects that Stork has utilised it on.
The harsh environment on a ship or a tanker requires not just highly skilled staff, but also products which have the special approvals and features to cope with these extreme conditions. This counts also for offshore platforms which extract oil or gas from the ocean bed and structures which generate renewable energy from wind and water. In addition a reliable distribution service is essential serving the demand of the maintainers and buyers who not only work but also live on these solitary places in the oceans around the globe. RS Components offers a complete package for Marine & Offshore customers ranging from specialised products to services that allow to serve customers wherever they are around the globe. http://uk.rs-online.com/web/generalDisplay.html?id=i/marine-oil-and-gas
www.xiengineering.com This video discusses how underwater noise produced by wind farms effect seal and harbour porpoises. A modelling approach was taken to compare how the underwater noise varies when the same wind turbine is mounted on different foundation types. The presentation was first presented at the COMSOL Conference 2014 help in Cambridge: www.comsol.com. The presenter is Dr Brett Marmo who co-authored the paper with Dr Iain Roberts.
An investigation finds the federal agency that regulates offshore oil and gas drilling and production has all but ignored an environmental enforcement division beset by understaffing and massive work backlogs.
http://www.belzona.com/en/focus/composite_repairs.aspx Belzona repair composites and epoxy coatings provide a cost-effective solution to repair and prevent seawater corrosion on offshore structures such as risers and platform legs. The offshore environment is home to natural occurring corrosion. Erosive action in splash zones and underwater areas often expose metal to a corrosive, wet atmosphere and to the impact from waves and debris, which causes damage to equipment and machinery. If the problems are not addressed at an early stage, they can ultimately lead to extensive damage and loss of structural integrity including leaks or ruptures. This will result in high repair or replacement costs, downtime and environmental hazards. Belzona range of repair composites and epoxy coatings can b...
PhD student Sebastian Tølbøll Glavind from Department of Civil Engineering at Aalborg University does research within multivariate modelling of the offshore load environment. Learn more about how he works with safety of structures in this film from Danish Hydrocarbon Research and Technology Centre.
Risk of spills and leaks from offshore oil and gas production is a major challenge and threat to the environment. A new measurement method based on research and development can help prevent disasters, with major economic and environmental consequences.
http://www.moxietraining.com/s.nl/it.A/id.8348/.f At the end of this program, students will be better prepared to work safely in the offshore environment, including traveling and transferring safely, preparing for emergencies, preventing marine debris and guarding against security threats.
This video shows Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) discharge plume models for 3 plants off the coast of Oahu, Hawaii, USA. 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. Because a commercial OTEC plant has not yet operated...

A look at the negative effects of offshore drilling using the Deepwater Horizon oil spill as an example of the environmental and economic impacts.
Following Energy Resource Minister Simon Bridges' warning to offshore protesters, opposition has emerged from Māori environmentalist Mike Smith, against major oil company Anadarko's deep sea oil drilling. He says there are flaws within NZ's legislation regarding oil exploration.
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.

This webinar is the second of a two-part series covering research programs designed to understand the environmental impacts of offshore wind. Held June 20, 2017
Ted Bennett and Michael Garofalo This documentary outlines our student travel fellowship to Denmark where we studied the Effects of Offshore Wind Farms on the society, the economy, and the environment. This study was provided by the Eisenstein Fellowship from St. Albans School in Washington DC
Dr. Casey Hubert and his University of Calgary research team using $113,228 of research funding from Marine Environmental Observation Prediction and Response Network (MEOPAR) and Irving Shipbuilding to gather and study genetic information from marine microbes off the coast of Nova Scotia. 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. 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 ...
VIEW THE FULL PRESENTATION HERE http://grandview.rymatech.com/2006/122-product-management-offshore-environment.html With the advent of globalization, the environment for software development and business in general has changed drastically. The presentation will discuss an offshore model for software product development, and the role of product management in the offshore model. Also discussed will be the benefits of having offshore product management, its challenges, tips to overcome such challenges, and how some product management activities are agnostic to the work place.
