The Dangers of Working on an Onshore Oil Rig

To remind, Maersk Oil selected Semco Maritime last year to participate in the preparation of its new Culzean gas field in the UK sector of the North Sea when the production units arrive from Singapore in the summer of this year. Semco Maritime will be responsible for carrying out the electrical work, while the piping and painting work will be carried out by two other companies. MDE Group said that it would be looking to build a core crew of electricians, technicians, and engineers to support Semco Maritime in delivering their services to the Culzean project. The Culzean complex, located kilometers east of the coast of Aberdeen, will consist of a central processing platform, a wellhead platform, a living quarter platform, which are currently under construction at the Sembcorp Marine yard in Singapore. The company added that it has been supporting Semco Maritime with the setup of a team of hook-up specialists to prepare the installation work in Singapore and will be putting together a UK based team to have everything planned when the platforms arrive in the North Sea. Jim Cooper, director of Semco Maritime, said: It marks a huge step forward for our business in both being a seen a recognized global manpower and mobility partner but also as a proven local provider to the UK offshore sector.

Completely revising the front axle. All parts for this job are available in the surrounding shops. Some parts are must be made from scratch on the lathe like the brass inner rings of the spindles. The operator also makes the bearings fitting again which had some play. We have the key and we can sleep in the car. The guys working there are thoroughly brainwashed in the Swiss orderly way.

Picture added on 22 March at Doug, Hook up started in late 92 and finished in 93, barges alongside were Borgland Dolphin on the right of the pic and Safe Brittania, I stayed on both at some point throughout the project before going onto the East Brae hook up. Added by Mike McKenzie on 05 April Few years ago now. Have you been back since the hook up? Added by Doug Seivwright on 13 April No, haven’t been back since then Doug but might make it one day!

Added by Mike McKenzie on 14 April At one stage we were shuttling to pipe laying barges and drilling platforms each day as the workforce grew. Some guys were lucky enough to shuttle to the Holiday Inn, Aberdeen each day. I have long since left the industry in favour of IT and moved to NZ, however that was one of the experiences that stays with you all your life.

I suggest to search for a professional Merc Dealer. The good news is that it could have been prevented. I would suggest that a qualified mechanic look at all the oil delivery components, and replace all the soft components all of the clear and black tubing in the system and carefully bleed the system. I recall the shop manual reccomended running on Oil injection is quite reliable in general, but it does rely on some very cheap parts that can easily fail and cause your engine to have a catastrophic problem eg bearing failure, cylinder score, etc.

For some people, fishing is a tedious activity. But not a few are actually used as hobbies. The hobby owners are even willing to sit for hours in fishing waiting for the bait to be struck by fish. Although the resulting catch may not be more than the costs incurred. Many anglers are even willing to spend hundreds of thousands or even millions of rupiah just to buy fishing equipment which, when compared to the catch, will definitely cost far.

Although called a strange hobby, apparently fishing also has health benefits. The activities that are often carried out by Adam’s people are called to make someone happier and fitter. Stress Remover According to anglers, the activity of throwing a hook, waiting for fish, and pulling a hook is a stress relief activity. Maintain Physical Fitness In addition to fishing ponds, other fishing spots generally require extra energy to reach there. For example by rowing canoe, cycling, climbing hills, or walking.

O&H Rig Hooks are a must have for off-shore anglers. These 2-piece rig hooks provide anglers with a quick and secure way to attach a boat to fixed marine objects such as offshore rigs, wharves, buoys, and bridges without causing damage to the boat. Rig Hook Snubber is included with the purchase of .

Contact Us Effective Pop Up Carp Rig The carp rig shown below is similar to this pop-up fishing rig , except I used a bigger pop-up bait, and over weighted it under the swivel so it pulls the hook point down as a carp pulls up after taking the bait. Pop up rigs work well mainly because of the buoyancy in the bait. As a carp takes it into its mouth, the pop up still tries to float to the top inside the mouth because it is still filled with water you can notice this if you’ve ever tried to swallow an essential oil capsule with water, it floats to the roof of the mouth and makes it much harder to swallow, compare it to a normal multi-vitamin tablet which easily goes to the back of the throat because it sinks.

It is partly this principle that makes pop-ups hard to eject. The pop up hits the roof of a carp’s mouth when it tries to blow it back out, this causes the hook bait to stay in the mouth for longer, eventually the point penetrates the flesh and you get a hook hold. Obviously, this is not the only way pop-ups work as it depends on the way a carp feeds! The reason I developed this carp fishing rig is to use the weight to hook the fish.

The extra weight easily sinks the pop up but, it still pops up the length of the stiff link about 2 inches shown below.

That discussion did not go well, however, because Fallon Morell insisted there was no problem with her pet product. The safety of men, women and children was at stake. People already seemed to have been gravely harmed. I had hoped to exonerate the product. Instead, I found damning evidence that I could not allow to be covered up.

Some suspected it was not from arctic cod — or even cod at all. Although the majority of my sources requested anonymity because of their academic positions, Drs. Despite substantial evidence — and growing numbers of complaints from consumers harmed by the product — Sally Fallon Morell continues to defend and promote it. Over the past year I have chosen not to engage in an ongoing debate because I had done my duty and paid a high price for it physically, emotionally and financially.

I wanted to move on with my life. I am clarifying a few matters now because false statements about my work and motives abound on the internet and it is apparent that many people have either not read my report or did not read it carefully.

Cable Tool Rig When the first commercial oil well in North America was drilled at Petrolia, Ontario, in , a cable tool rig was used. Cable tool rigs had been in use for hundreds of years. They were used to drill for fresh water or for brines that were evaporated for salt. The cable tool rig was also used in such early Alberta fields as Turner Valley, and they were used to drill punch all the early wells in the Lloydminster area. Cable tool drilling first involved the construction, on site, of an 82 foot high wooden derrick, built on a foundation of huge timbers.

The legs were made of 2″ x 12″ rough lumber laminated to form a right angle similar to angle iron. These were braced with horizontal girts and diagonal struts. On the derrick floor, there were three cable reels [see diagram to right] wound with steel cable which ran up and over the shives in the crown blocks. One cable was the drilling line, one for the bailer, and the other for lowering and pulling the casing. There were also three large wheels operated by power from a steam engine which sat just a few feet from the derrick platform.

The platform ran out from the derrick floor and on it was mounted the sand reel which contained the sand line. The bailer was used to bail out the cuttings and water from the bottom of the well. A few feet closer to the derrick was mounted the band wheel, operated directly from the engine. Also mounted on the platform, just off the derrick floor, was a well braced upright post, know as the sampson post, and on top of it, laying horizontally, and attached by a hinge, was a timber, tapering from the centre to either end, called the walking beam.

After Singapore’s Sembmarine said it delivered the world’s largest jack-up rig to Noble Corporation, South Korea’s Hyundai Heavy Industries boasted with the delivery of world’s largest semi-submersible drilling rig.

The field is located km from the shore and 13km from the Oseberg field, in a water depth of m. The field was originally operated by Norsk Hydro with a The project was given development consent in June Oseberg upgrade In March , Aker Solutions has been awarded a NOK1, m engineering, procurement, construction and installation EPCI contract by Statoil to upgrade existing drilling facilities on the Oseberg B platform, one of the four platforms at the field.

The upgrade project will increase the productivity lifespan of Oseberg B. Aker Solutions will provide prefabrication and offshore equipment installation. The upgrade project is expected to be complete by April The modernisation includes installing low-pressure flow pipes and new low-pressure manifolds on Oseberg B. It also includes the installation of pipes from the low—pressure manifolds on Oseberg B over the bridge to Oseberg A where the pipes will be connected to the Oseberg A second-phase separators.

In addition, gas compressors and production trains will be upgraded by Greenland Group to support the low production pressure. The low production pressure increases the oil recoveries up to three or 4 million cubic metres corresponding to 20 to 25 million barrels. Two separators have been installed in the Oseberg field.

The first-phase separators have a pressure of 67 bar and comprises oil and gas on oseberg A. The modernisation of the Oseberg field enables the oil to go directly in to second-phase separators having a pressure of 20 bar.

We have always been a strong advocate for maritime personal injury victims and the families of those who are killed while working in service of a vessel or under the Jones Act law. Our concern is for the safety of those involved and helping their families find out the whereabouts and conditions of their loved ones. These are some of the diverse groups of injured workers we have represented:

Hulking oil rigs and platforms far offshore the coast of Louisiana are the ultimate fish attracting devices, concentrating pelagic superstars such as blue marlin and yellowfin tuna. Inside the continental shelf, rigs in shallower water attract species such as amberjack and tuna.

He regarded his peak oil calculation as independent of reserve estimates. Many of the so-called reserves are in fact resources. They’re not delineated, they’re not accessible, they’re not available for production. In many major producing countries, the majority of reserves claims have not been subject to outside audit or examination. All three have reasons to overstate their proven reserves: Besides the possibility that these nations have overstated their reserves for political reasons during periods of no substantial discoveries , over 70 nations also follow a practice of not reducing their reserves to account for yearly production.

Analysts have suggested that OPEC member nations have economic incentives to exaggerate their reserves, as the OPEC quota system allows greater output for countries with greater reserves. This report was based on the leak of a confidential document from Kuwait and has not been formally denied by the Kuwaiti authorities. This leaked document is from , [83] but excludes revisions or discoveries made since then.
