This book contains the report presenting the results of the study performed by the recognized industry experts. The main declared objective of the study was the thorough analysis and review of the offshore use of the drag anchors. The idea of the authors was to establish the practice of the usage of subject anchors – this includes selection of the proper anchors, methods of their deployment and recovery, periodical inspection and survey of the anchors, failures that can occur during the anchor operations.

Difficulties commonly experienced when performing anchor handling operations, and many other important aspects. The report includes the valuable information covering the fabrication methods, dimensions and shapes of the drag anchors, their holding power and reliability matters.

The authors have gathered and analyzed a huge amount of information and data to get to the most accurate results of the study – subject information was collected using two methods, namely a literature survey and circulating relevant questionnaires to the authoritative offshore industry organizations . Numerous professional conclusions relating to the safety and reliability aspects have been drawn from the content of the report.

There is more than a century history of oil production in the Gulf of Mexico. Subject area has been treated as a primary source of oil and gas for America, generating as much as ninety-seven percent of all offshore hydrocarbons production. The release of the present document is an attempt to highlight the offshore oil and gas production activities in the deepwater GOM.

The publication was prepared by the Office of resource Evaluation in the Gulf of Mexico to present the seismic, leasing, geologic, well, reserves and of course production information addressing the deepwater portion of the Gulf. There are numerous criteria commonly used when defining deepwater. The threshold that separate deepwater and shallow water ranges from 200 to 457 meters. Within the content of this document deepwater is defined as the water depth exceeding 305 meters, or one thousand feet.

Most of the information contained in the ages of this report gas been collected from the data available by the end 2014. The crude oil is reported together with the condensate, same applies to the non-associated and associated gas. The report is very informative and will be useful to the people with professional interest in the offshore exploration an production of hydrocarbons.
