  • 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.

  • Life Offshore: Air Na Rigs

    What is life offshore really like? What is it like to leave the comfort of your own home and fly in a helicopter to work in the middle of the sea? What does it feel like to work 12-hour shifts for 14 days straight, with no days off and away from family? We experience it through the eyes of those who work there. From drillers to deckhands, caterers to controllers, this is an honest look into what it feels like to work offshore on the largest North Sea oil platform, Buzzard, and on the newest platform in the North Sea, Golden Eagle. Through this unique access, we get a fascinating behind-the-scenes glimpse into an often secretive world that is inaccessible to most of us. Over 70% of the UK's primary energy comes from oil and gas, and we meet some of the men and women whose job it is to work...

  • Environmental Groups Decry Obama Plan to Lift Moratorium on Offshore Drilling

    Environmental groups are denouncing President Obamas controversial new plan to open up large swaths of the Atlantic, Gulf and Alaskan coasts to offshore oil and gas drilling. On Wednesday, the Obama administration said it would lift a longstanding moratorium on oil drilling along the East Coast from Delaware to the central coast of Florida. New areas of the southeast Gulf Coast will also be open to drilling, as will the Arctic Ocean north of Alaska. We speak to Brendan Cummings of the Center for Biological Diversity, which helped stall the original 2007-2012 offshore oil drilling plan under the Bush administration. [includes rush transcript]

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.

  • 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...

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 businesses and also one of the biggest global centers for Islamic finance. There is no corporate income tax, personal income tax or capital gains tax. Bahrain also has a wide network of tax treaties with a number of developing countries. Secrecy Score: 74% Tax Haven Status: Small #8 Germany Between $2.81 to $3.38 trillion of tax exempt interest-bearing assets held by non-residents as of August 2013. Germany does not sufficiently exchange tax-related information with a multitude of other jurisdictions and despite recent progress with its anti-money laundering framework, major loopholes and many implementation deficits still exist Secrecy Score: 56% Tax Haven Status: Huge but Shifty #7 Lebanon Many members of the population are high-net worth individuals. Beirut’s offshore financial services sector has been growing at an average of nearly 12 percent per year since 2006. Lebanon’s political and military troubles over recent decades have disrupted the offshore financial sector, but it has proved astonishingly resilient. Secrecy Score: 79% Tax Haven Status: Small and Secure #6 Luxembourg The most important private banking and wealth management center in the Eurozone. It has 143 banks holding almost $800 billion in assets, over $300 billion of which are in the secretive private banking sector and is a center of lax financial regulation and is still one of the world’s most important financial centers. Breaking professional secrecy can result in a prison sentence Secrecy Score: 55% Tax Haven Status: Huge #5 The Cayman Islands Banking assets worth $1.4 trillion in June 2014. Hoststing over 11,000 mutual and other funds with a net asset value of $2.1 trillion. It has 200 banks, over 140 trust companies and over 95,000 registered companies and retains many secrecy features plus laws that can put people in jail not only for exposing confidential information, but merely for asking for it. Secrecy Score: 65% Tax Haven Status: Aggressively Protective #4 Singapore A major wealth management center, with $1.4 trillion in assets under management in 2013. In 2014 it become Asia’s largest foreign exchange trading center. It hosts a lack of serious reforms to its corporate secrecy regime and a lack of interest in creating public registries of beneficial ownership. Secrecy Score: 69% Tax Haven Status: Intentionally Blind? #3 USA The U.S. has led the charge in combating international tax evasion using offshore financial accounts. However, the U.S. also provides a multitude of secrecy and tax-free facilities for non U.S. residents It's one of the few places left where advisers are actively promoting accounts that will remain secret from overseas authorities. Secrecy Score: 60% Tax Haven Status: Ironic #2 Hong Kong Hong Kong has the second largest stock exchange in Asia after Tokyo with $2.1 trillion under management in April 2015 and over $350 billion in private banking assets. China’s control over Hong Kong has shielded it from global transparency initiatives. It also has not signed the multilateral agreement to initiate automatic information exchange via the CRS. Secrecy Score: 72% Tax Haven Status: See-No-Evil #1 Switzerland Switzerland is the grandfather of the world’s tax havens, known to have introduced Banking Secrecy Laws as far back as 1934 However, in 2010, the US enacted the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act and the Swiss government was ultimately forced to bow to US pressure In 2013, the US government signed a tax treaty that calls for Swiss banks to provide details on their American account holders Secrecy Score: 73% Tax Haven Status: BOSS

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, 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

"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.
