One of the greatest challenges for offshore oil and gas production is to preserve our fragile ecosystem and to protect humans and our fragile ecosystem. Safety guidelines, equipment oversight and regulations have been developed and documented for all offshore drilling companies, In most cases there...
What happened the last time the Eyjafjallajokull volcano erupted?
By: Andy Orrell
Not so long ago if you were to mention Eyjafjallajökull, people within earshot would probably have assumed you were speaking in tongues. But now, this small Icelandic volcano is making headlines all over the world. After erupting on the 14th of April the plume...

When Eyjafjallajokull (pronounced AY-uh-fiat-luh-YEU-koot-luh, with the 'EU' as in liqueur) began its second eruptive cycle on April 15, the resulting ash cloud grounded airplanes from the Mediterranean Sea to the Arctic Circle. As long as the eruption shows no sign of stopping, the ash cloud...

It will be awhile before the total loss has been calculated due to the volcanic ash cloud that has plagued a great part of Europe. Airlines, businesses, food industry, and even the flower industry has been affected. The grand total could conceivably be in the...

Every time a volcano erupts, the subject of geoengineering arises, and Iceland’s recent event won’t be any different. The question is, however, could this “cure” for the earth’s problems be more dangerous than the problem itself.Geoengineering is the somewhat dubious...

Whether the March and April eruption of Iceland's volcano will boost geoengineering was being debated before Eyjafjallajokull began spewing more ash clouds high into the air in early May. The issue of geoengineering will undoubtedly be even more hotly debated and discussed in light of...

Slant drilling is such an effective method of drilling, it caused two nations to feud. In 1990, Iraq accused Kuwait of stealing 300,000 barrels of Iraqi oil a day using slant drilling. Slant drilling, also known as directional drilling is defined as the practice...

The U.S. Department of Energy has a brochure on directional drilling, It says, “…Oil and gas at depths recently considered unreachable can now be tapped. Smaller accumulations once thought to be uneconomic can now be produced profitably. Fields under wetlands or cities...

On April 20, 2010 a methane bubble escaped into a drilling pipe, got past the malfunctioning blowout preventers and shot up the drill pipe to the Deepwater Horizon, causing an series of explosions that killed 11 workers and toppled the rig over 5,000 feet...
