Oil & Gas Drilling Technology – Offshore Rigs – Part 3

Jurandir Primo, PE

This course brings the basic concepts of Oil & Gas Drilling Technology – Offshore Rigs – Part 3, in a very important didactic form, suited for everyone, beginners, students, technicians, engineers, contractors and all interested professionals, working or not, with Oil & Gas Drilling. The concepts of this course are divided in 5 basic sections as follows: Introduction, History, Marine Oil & Gas Exploration, Offshore Drilling, Offshore Platforms & Equipment, Drilling Rigs Types, References and Links, properly illustrated and clearly distributed in 90 pages.

Subsea, or commonly known as offshore drilling, is a very complex process where a wellbore is drilled through the seabed, typically carried out in order to explore and subsequently extract petroleum, which lies in rock formations beneath the seabed. Most commonly, the term is used to des-cribe drilling activities on the continental shelf, though the term can also be applied to drilling in lakes, inshore waters and inland seas. Offshore drilling also presents extreme environmental challenges, both from the produced hydrocarbons and the materials used during the drilling operation.

There are also two annexes, brought by this author: a free edited video “Onshore – Oil & Gas Drilling Technology, and a Power Point Presentation “Subsea Drilling”, as supplements to help students and professionals to improve their knowledges. A preview of this course, the second of three parts, is available to the interested student to evaluate the content, which will be totally open to any student after paying. Courses Part 2 and Part 3 are continuations of Part 1.

Petroleum and gas include many sections of technologies that deal with the study and application of crude oil, gas, geology, geophysics, well construction, drilling, data management and petroleum business. Oil and natural gas together make petroleum. Petroleum, which is Latin term for “rock oil,” or a fossil fuel, meaning it was made naturally from decaying prehistoric plant and animal remains. It is a mixture of hundreds of different hydrocarbons molecules containing hydrogen and carbon that exist sometimes as a liquid (crude oil) and sometimes as a vapor (natural gas).

This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
