One of the most popular textbooks on offshore engineering developed specifically for the non-technical people; the content has been presented in a manner making it easy to catch for everyone, even to the absolute beginners. Thousands of employees currently working in the offshore industry started their training with this volume taking readers through all operations commonly taking place offshore.
This is one of the best offshore primers available today. The book opens with the general information about the oil and gas, their nature and where they are usually found, followed by the identification of the common minerals and rocks and minerals. The readers will get the geological time clearly explained to them, together with the deformation and further distribution of the sedimentary rocks.
The other important items covered in the pages of the book are plate tectonics and ocean environment, source rocks and mapping, oil traps and reservoir rocks, oil generation, migration and accumulation, hydrocarbon exploration process and its stages, preliminaries of the drilling process, drilling a well - mechanics of the process, drilling problems and different drilling techniques, well testing and completion, surface treatment, oil storage, established offshore drilling practices, workover and so many other topics directly relating to the offshore drilling.
