Here is a list of the top 10 Biggest Tax Havens in the World. (Ranking is based on a combination of its secrecy score and scale weighting) #10 United Arab Emirates One of the world’s best known tax havens or secrecy jurisdictions.It has a low-tax environment and a complex array of free trade zones with multiple secrecy facilities and lax enforcement. A large slice of the inbound money comes in the form gold. Secrecy Score: 77% Tax Haven Status: Tiny #9 Bahrain An island of hospitality to banks and businesse...
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.
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...
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...
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.
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...
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.
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.

"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...

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.
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 ...
