The upstream oil and gas industry has its own unique set of health, safety and environmental (HSE) challenges. Drilling, completion and production have become increasingly specialized and complex. Some techniques, pose an inherently high risk to the environment and to worker safety. The purpose of HSE technology is to provide products and services that minimize those risks.
Despite the abundance of unconventional oil and gas potential in all corners of the globe, North America remains the only region with a booming shale industry. However, a host of other countries are eager to emulate the region’s success and exploit their own, domestic shale resources.
GlassPoint: Harnessing the power of the sun
Rig advances come in all shapes and sizes. From a line of software code to a BOP stack, and from deepwater drilling vessels to walking land rigs, these innovations describe a dynamic industry focused on safety, efficiency and capability, in some of the most difficult circumstances on earth. In the following three articles, we look at offshore and onshore newbuild rigs, and highlight a few of the innovations that, on a daily basis, reinvent the process of drilling a hole in the ground.
