Issue 14

The critical role that communications plays in remote offshore oil and gas operations cannot be overstated. We explore the difficulties of providing secure and reliable offshore communications for the industry.

In the latest issue we find out about the importance of digital geospatial data in the operational and risk management process, explore new efforts to improve the safety of helicopter operations in the North Sea, look at the future of Italy’s offshore oil and gas industry and ask if the risk will outweigh the reward for investors in Israel’s natural gas operation.

Moreover, we look the world’s largest oil fields and profile a new technology that could revolutionise the process of treating water as a by-product of oil and gas extraction.

Next issue preview

The notion of a worldwide oil shortage has frequently been discussed, but at this year’s World Energy Congress it was claimed that there is enough to last for decades. We ask whether peak oil is just a myth or if there is some truth to the fears.

In the next issue we ask if the UK has enough manpower for its upcoming decommissioning projects, look at Kenya’s offshore potential and consider how Canadian industry, environmentalists and politicians are preparing for the country’s anticipated oil boom.

Moreover, we profile a new ultra-stable accommodation craft for offshore workers and learn about the growing risk of kidnap incidents in the energy industry.
