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.
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.

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.
"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...
Someone (Exxon? Shell? BP?) dug through a National Academy of Sciences report from 2003, released bits and pieces of it to the media and Fox is doing their pro-offshore drilling propagandizing for them. More at www.newshounds.us

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...
Speaker: Ahmed Fouad, .NET Team Leader at CrossWorkers Offshore Environment at CrossWorkers is challenging and dynamic. We have the courage to innovate, take steps, and explore new ways of doing things because we know that this is the only way we become extraordinary at what we do.
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 ...
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.
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.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...

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.
