Issue 21

We look back at the T.D. Williamson project surrounding gas flow to Jakarta in 2013, profile the 200 year old Norwegian technology company Kongsberg Gruppen and analyse the IPCC report regarding carbon emissions.

In the latest issue we also discover the subsea crab that has been unveiled by the Korean Institute of Ocean Science and Technology, in addition to discovering how the Lockheed Martin‘s acquisition of oil & gas cyber security firm Industrial Defender could be crucial in acquiring offshore platforms.

Moreover, we learn about the expedition to harness seabed methane hydrates since its first successful extraction in Japan and whether ‘fire ice’ lives up to its name.

Next issue preview

In the next issue, we profile the territorial rows flaring up around the world over potential oil hot spots.

Also, we take a look at several offshore companies that have made the leap into issuing retail bonds, profile emerging unconventional resources and investigate Norway’s plan to force operators to use electricity from onshore generation rather than burning diesel and gas.

Moreover, we take a look at digital radiography and speak to the head of graduate employment at BP to discuss how BP is attracting the best STEM students.

Look out for our Environment & Efficiency special issue, out on 4th September.
