Biggest Oil Platform Rigs in the World as of 2017 As oceans swell around them, some of the world's tallest manmade structures live in water, not on land. There's not a whole lot of variety when it comes to this manmade mammoths of the sea. Most of theses mega-builds draw oil from the depths, the only purpose as yet discovered that's lucrative enough to pay for their out-sized cost and complicated engineering. One more thing they have in common is that they all can wow with impressive size. We look at seven of the most intense and impressive offshore structures across the globe. [for text and creatives, http://loloha.com/biggest-oil-platform-rigs-in-the-world-as-of-2017/] Berkut While the Berkut oil platform toils in near anonymity in Russia's Far East, it does so with a heft unlike any other rig. At 200000 tons, the Bekut holds the record for the biggest in the world, above water. It can work under its own power down to minus-47 degrees Fahrenheit, withstand chunks of floating ice up to six feet thick and shake off waves up to 60 feet high. Stones While Berkut may prove the heftiest above the water, Stones, opened in September 2016 and operated by Shell, goes the deepest of any offshore structure, reaching a staggering 9,500 feet underwater. Located in the Gulf of Mexico, the Stones above-water structure—significantly more boat-like than your average oil rig—was built in Singapore before making the cross-ocean trip to its current location. There, it ties to two wells, with plans to expand to six over time. Stones uses a flexible "steel lazy wave riser" to carry oil and gas to the top, with the bend in the piping absorbing the motion of the structure. Perdido Until Stones opened just months ago, Perdido—also located in the Gulf of Mexico and operated by Shell—was the deepest of all the offshore structures, dropping its roots a dizzying 8000 feet (one and a half miles) underwater. Built in Finland before making its trek to about 200 miles south of Galveston, Texas, the main structure—which sits mostly underwater—stretches about 875 feet, about the same height as the Eiffel Tower. Olympus, or Mars B Weighing 120000 tons—more than 300 Boeing 747 jets—the 2014 built Olympus Mars B development in the Gulf of Mexico sits in 3,100 feet of water. From the base of the hull to the top of the derrick, Olympus is 406 feet tall and has a combined deck area of 342000 square feet, taller and with more floor area than the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans. Troll A The 1,548 foot tall Troll A platform off the west coast of Norway includes 1,210 feet of structure below the water's surface. Along with impressive height, when the platform moved over land into the North Sea in 1996 in a seven-day process, it became the largest object to ever be moved by man across the earth. Petronius If you're looking for tall oil rigs, look no further than the Gulf of Mexico where you'll find the Chevron-operated Petronius. The platform's piled tower design gives the whole structure a height of 2001 feet, but with only 246 feet visible above water. The 43000 ton structure hovers above the seabed which lays 1754 feet below, and the underwater structure can sway in excess of two percent of its height. Hibernia The world's first iceberg-resistant gravity-based structure, the Hibernia platform includes a 41000 ton topside facility mounted on a 660000 ton gravity base structure, which literally sits on the seabed. The largest offshore platform in Canada, the Hibernia can withstand a six-million-ton iceberg, and has an iceberg management system that works to detect the movements of incoming ice and alter its path away from the structure. Baldplate Located off the coast of Louisiana, Baldplate was the first ever free-standing offshore compliant tower. Designed by Hudson Engineering in Houston, Texas, Baldplate stands in an impressive 1,650 feet of water. Its production peak was reached in 1999. Blue Whale One China’s homemade deep-sea drilling platform. China’s sixth-generation homemade deep-sea semi-submersible drilling platform has successfully completed its deep-sea trial, local media reported, marking a further improvement in China’s capability of manufacturing high-end deep-water drilling rigs. With a length of 104.5 meters, a width of 70.5 meters and a height of 105.8 meters, the platform is able to operate in water depths up to 1500 meters and drill as deep as 9144 meters. It is so far the world’s most advanced drilling platform.

Offshore platforms are remarkable engineering feats, therefor it is time for the 5 largest offshore platforms of the world! Massive in size, these structures take several years and often many billions of dollars to build — but when complete, they can extract oil and gas from some of the least-accessible spots on the planet. The Mars B/Olympus Platform in the Gulf of Mexico First oil production begun in February 2014 from the Mars B development through Olympus, Shell’s seventh, and largest, floating deep-water platform in the Gulf of Mexico. Combined production from Olympus and Shell’s original Mars platform is expected to deliver an estimated resource base of 1 billion barrels of oil equivalent (boe). The project is also directly investing $5 million dollars in community, social and environmental initiatives with the aim to benefit the communities of the US Gulf Coast, as well as in South Korea, where the hull of the Olympus platform was built. Olympus sailing into the Gulf of Mexico Olympus sailing into the Gulf of Mexico The Hibernia Platform in the Canadian Atlantic Hibernia is an oil field in the North Atlantic Ocean, approximately 315 kilometres (196 mi) east-southeast of St. John’s, Newfoundland, Canada, in 80 m of water. The production platform Hibernia is the world’s largest oil platform (by weight) and consists of a 37,000 t (41,000 short tons) integrated topsides facility mounted on a 600,000 t (660,000 short tons) gravity base structure. The platform was towed to its final site, and 450,000 t (500,000 short tons) of solid ballast were added to secure it in place. Inside the gravity base structure are storage tanks for 1.2 million barrels (190,000 m3) of crude oil. The Hibernia Platform in the Canadian Atlantic The Hibernia Platform in the Canadian Atlantic The Petronius Platform in the Gulf of Mexico Petronius is a deepwater compliant tower oil platform operated by Chevron Corporation and Marathon Oil in the Gulf of Mexico, 210 km southeast of New Orleans, United States. A compliant piled tower design, it is 609.9 metres (2,001 ft) high, and was arguably the tallest free-standing structure in the world, until surpassed by the Burj Khalifa in 2010, although this claim is disputed since only 75 metres of the platform are above water. The multi-deck topsides are 64 metres by 43 metres by 18.3 metres high and hold 21 well slots, and the entire structure weighs around 43,000 tons. Around 8,000 m3 (50,000 barrels) of oil and 2,000,000 m3 (70 million cubic feet) of natural gas are extracted daily by the platform. The jacket supports topsides weighing 7,500t. The jacket supports topsides weighing 7,500t. The Perdido Platform in the Gulf of Mexico Perdido is the world’s deepest spar, and the second-deepest oil and gas production hub after Shell’s Stones development. Moored in around 2,450 metres (8,000 feet) of water in the US Gulf of Mexico, Perdido started production in 2010, opening up a new frontier in deep-water oil and gas recovery. The Perdido Platform in the Gulf of Mexico The Perdido Platform in the Gulf of Mexico The Berkut Platform in the Sea of Okhotsk on the Russian Pacific Coast Russia’s Rosneft and America’s ExxonMobil have launched a unique drilling platform in the Okhotsk Sea in Russia’s Far East. The world’s most powerful rig can drill within the radius of at least 7 kilometers. The drilling platform can withstand a 9 magnitude earthquake, waves of up to 18 meters and temperatures down to minus 44 degrees Celsius, Rosneft President Igor Sechin said. Berkut can also withstand floating ice up to two meters thick and has an autonomous power supply system. It has the largest superstructure on any rig. Weighing 200,000 tons it can drill a total of 45 wells. The platform is located 25 km offshore in waters up 35 meters deep. The drilling will be performed by means of a marine rig, which allows all-year-round drilling of wells. http://ttalents.com/5-largest-offshore-platforms/

Perdido is the deepest floating oil rig (platform) in the world at a water depth of about 2450 meters operated by the Shell Oil Company in the Gulf of Mexico. The Perdido is located in the Perdido fold belt which is a rich discovery of crude oil and natural gas that lies in water that is nearly 8000 feet deep. The platform's peak production will be 100,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day. At 267 meters, the Perdido is nearly as tall as the Eiffel Tower. An oil rig is a large structure with facilities to drill wells, to extract and process oil and natural gas, and to temporarily store product until it can be brought to shore for refining and marketing. In many cases, the platform contains facilities to house the workforce as well.

- Like our Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/oilvips - Oil and gas are generated from a source rock, organic matter buried in the depths of the earth. Once formed, they climb back towards the surface. On their way, cap rocks can impede their progress and they accumulate in reservoir rocks. Here they constitute hydrocarbon fields, which can be identified by interpreting seismic data (a sort of echography). The data is obtained with the help of a seismic ship. To confirm the interpretations of seismic data, two types of drilling gear exist. Each is adapted to a range of depth of water (down to more than 2500 meters). The platform seen here is a semi-submersible, which floats and retains its stabilised position by means of anchors fixed on the seabed. Platforms at sea are used not only for drilling but also for the production of hydrocarbons. This production consists of the separation of oil, gas and water, before the oil and gas is taken by pipeline towards a mainland terminal. Where it is impossible or too expensive to link the field to the coast by a pipeline, an FPSO ship is used (Floating Production Storage and Offloading barge). Onboard, the hydrocarbons and the water are separated. The oil is stored prior to being loaded on tankers and the gas is re-injected into the reservoir rocks. Gas from a field is taken to land through an underground gasoduct to a processing plant. There, if the gas is to be transported by sea, it is converted into liquid obtained by cooling it down to --163°C. When it arrives at the plant terminal, the liquid natural gas (LNG) is returned to its gaseous state in a re-gasification plant, before being introduced into the local gasoduct network. The LNG is stored in tanks before re-gasification. The crude oil is transported in a petroleum tanker, the capacity of which can attain 200 000 tons. It is commonly called a "super- tanker". The terminals capable of receiving such giants are few and far between. The ships used to transport the crude oil produced on an FPSO ship are of a much smaller capacity. The crude oil, before being refined, is stored in the port in the large capacity tanks. The natural gas is preserved in reservoirs (artificial or natural). It is ready to be injected by pumping into the gasoduct network for industrial and domestic use or as fuel in power-generating stations. As far as the crude oil goes, it is transported by oleoduct to the refinery. There it undergoes a number of transformations and blending. A variety of finished products are obtained (LPG, petrol, kerosene, diesel ...), or naphtha, which will be used as the basis for the composition of plastic products by complex petroleum chemistry. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Like our Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/oilvips Twitter: https://twitter.com/oilvips And Don't forget to subscribe to our channel

The Brent oil and gas field, operated by Shell, lies off the north-east coast of Scotland, midway between the Shetland Islands and Norway. It is one of the largest fields in the North Sea and is served by four large platforms. It has been a cornerstone of the UK's hugely successful oil and gas industry for 40 years. Now the Brent field is reaching the stage where almost all the available reserves of oil and gas have been retrieved. The next step in the lifecycle is to decommission Brent’s four platforms and their related infrastructure. As the operator, Shell is required to submit a decommissioning programme to the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy with detailed recommendations for closing down and making safe the four platforms and subsea infrastructure of the Brent field. Ten years of research, engineering studies, expert input, consultations and scientific assessments have gone into this process.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Ztl5ccsGJE A documentary video of how to prevent a deep water oil disaster at sea. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Ztl5ccsGJE Deep well drilling, is the process of oil and gas exploration. There are approximately lacks of deepwater wells in with depths greater than 150 meters upto 4000 metres and keep increasing day by day .The sheer size and depth of these rigs are cause for concern if one were to break. This presents significant difficulties for well repair.It has not been technologically and economically feasible for many years, but with rising oil prices, more companies are investing on this sectors day by day.. Oil well fires are more difficult to extinguish than regular fires due to the enormous fuel supply for the fire. In fighting a fire at a wellhead, typically high explosives, such as dynamite, are used to create a shockwave that pushes the burning fuel and local atmospheric oxygen away from the well. (This is a similar principle to blowing out a candle.) The flame is removed and the fuel can continue to spill out without catching on fire. After blowing out the fire, the wellhead must be capped to stop the flow of oil. During this time, the fuel and oxygen required to create another inferno are present in copious amounts. At this perilous stage, one small spark (perhaps from a steel or iron tool striking a stone) or other heat source might re-ignite the oil.

North Sea platforms can be used to generate green Geothermal Energy, George E. Lockett said in this video recording of his All-Energy 2012, Geothermal Session Presentation. The presentation goes into details of why the North Sea is a good location by describing that the Earth's Crust gets thinner as we move offshore. There is also cold sea water for condensation of working fluids. Lockett describes how Enhanced and Secondary Oil Production can be created by steam flooding oil reservoirs, after generating electrical power from the geothermal fluids to extract heavy oils and tars. High Pressure High Temperature (HPHT) Fields -- these may be some of the best locations for geothermal energy and they are about 150 miles east of Aberdeen. He describes how power can be generated from Natural Gas flows at high pressure, as the pressure is reduced; and how this can be done where gas mains change pressure to service the domestic market too, using a Gas Letdown Generator. The geothermal power can be connected to the national grid or used to generate hydrogen by electrolysis. Lockett describes how some of the £30 billion decommissioning budget for the North Sea could be used to extend the life of Platforms by creating a new Geothermal Energy Industry. This new geothermal industry would employ thousands of workers in new productive jobs in the offshore and on-shore support industries.

Kharg is the most important and strategic Island of Iran in the Persian Gulf in terms of oil. There are several good reasons for that. Firstly, the Island is located in the middle of Iran’s richest oil reservoirs and is surrounded by numerous oil fields, which are being used through platforms of the Iranian Offshore Oil Company IOOC. Secondly, because of its unique geographical features, which enables the island’s terrain to be used as the main hub for Iran’s oil exports. More than 90 percent of export oil produced in both the offshore and on land platforms of Iran is pumped to Kharg Island and then exported to some of the world’s most advanced terminals.

As the oil drilling platforms off the coast of California age and stop producing oil, the oil companies are faced with the very expensive task of pulling them out of the Pacific Ocean. This is a costly problem for the oil industry, and one of the many problems oil companies create at risk to the environment. Underwater many of the oil rigs are abundant with sea life, which has some environmental experts are advocating leaving the offshore oil rigs in place to serve as artificial reefs and support struggling marine animals and turn a blighted structure into something more ecologically productive.

Energy companies halted nearly a fifth of Gulf of Mexico oil production as Hurricane Michael intensifies, but Mizuho's Bob Yawger says it won't hurt their business much. Fred Katayama reports. Offshore producers like Anadarko, BHP Billiton, and Chevron halted nearly a fifth of oil output in the Gulf of Mexico as Hurricane Michael intensified. Forecasters said the storm will soon turn into a Category 3 hurricane, with sustained winds of up to 129 miles per hour, and bring heavy seas to oil and gas producing areas. U.S. oil prices rose nearly one percent on Tuesday morning. But traders discounted any long-term effects on output. Send your video clips of Hurricane Michael to [email protected] Live feed: Panama City, Florida HURRICANE Michael has today been upgraded to a Category 4 storm with residents in Florida warned of deadly floods and 130mph winds. The National Hurricane Centre today described it as "extremely dangerous" amid fears it could be the strongest to hit the region since records began. The "monstrous" storm is tipped to make landfall later today with experts now warning of devastating winds topping 130mph. Should it retain its current strength when it reaches the coastline, it would be the strongest hurricane to ever hit the Florida Panhandle since records began in 1851, according to Weather.com. The National Weather Service in Tallahassee, Florida, warned: "A potentially catastrophic event is developing. Locations may be uninhabitable for weeks or months." Florida Governor Rick Scott tweeted: "Hurricane Michael will be here TONIGHT. This is your LAST CHANCE to get prepared for this monstrous and deadly storm. The state is not taking this storm lightly and neither should any family." Senator Bill Nelson said a "wall of water" could cause major destruction along vulnerable areas of the Panhandle. "Don't think that you can ride this out if you're in a low-lying area," he said on CNN. Escambia County Sheriff David Morgan bluntly advised those residents choosing stay that rescuers won't be able to reach them. "If you decide to stay in your home and a tree falls on your house or the storm surge catches you and you're now calling for help, there's no one that can respond to help you," he said. Weather experts sent out similar grim warnings with National Hurricane Center Director Ken Graham saying: "If they tell you to leave, you have to leave." Thousands have been warned to evacuate along Florida's coast, where schools and state offices are to remain shut this week. Jason McDonald, of Panama City was driving with his wife and two young children, aged five and seven, to North Alabama. He said: "We don't know if it's going to wipe out our house or not. "We've got supplies to last us a week. Plenty of water. I made sure we've got clean clothes. We got everything tied down." One county in Florida cannot open their shelters because they can only withstand a Category 2 hurricane. Shelters in Wakulla County is unable to provide protection for the residents that have been ordered to leave. Residents were being taken by van to the neighbouring Leon County. More than 300 miles of coastline are currently under threat, the National Weather Service has said. Some regions of the US may see 12in (30cm) of rain, and storm surges of up to 13ft (3.6m). At least 13 people have already been reported killed in Central America as a result of the massive storm.

Researchers and engineers from the German project ISUP (Integrated Systems for Underwater Production of Hydrocarbons) plan to employ robots to tap into deep sea oil reserves. Remote-controlled robotic arms will be used to build the platform underwater. A pump will transport the oil through a pipeline on the ocean floor to a processing plant on land. The long-term goal is to make conventional offshore platforms obsolete, while making oil production safer and cheaper. The drilling would, however, continue to be conducted from a floating oil platform - similar to the ones used in the Gulf of Mexico.

In 2014 Russia became the world’s first producer of Arctic Oil or ARCO. The Prirazlomnaya platform on the Russian Shelf above the Arctic Circle, operates round the clock to extract the oil. The “Kirill Lavrov” is one of two giant tankers that ferry the black gold to land. The platform is constantly expanding, putting down new bore holes. Once extracted the oil must be carefully analysed to ensure the quality is consistent. So scientists aboard the platform never stop, from their own laboratory on the rig, they make sure the oil always meets the highest standards. Everything that happens out here is scrutinised and practiced to perfection. The man-made island has 2 search and rescue teams who practice regularly emergency drills to keep the crew safe and to respond swiftly in the unthinkable event of an oil spill. They take safety seriously, both personal and ecological, the engineers take great pride in the fact that not a drop of oil has been spilt since the rig came into operation. The Prirazlomnaya’s numbers around 200 people who work day and night in extremely harsh conditions. The shift patterns mean that they spend every other month away from their families. It certainly takes strength of character to do this job. RT Doc visits the rig to meet the people of Russia’s first Arctic oil platform, including the only woman aboard, to find out more about the process of producing ARCO safely.
