Book Description

This book provides a comprehensive understanding of each aspect of offshore operations including conventional methods of operations, emerging technologies, legislations, health, safety and environment impact of offshore operations. The book starts by coverage of notable offshore fields across the globe and the statistics of present oil production, covering all types of platforms available along with their structural details. Further, it discusses production, storage and transportation, production equipment, safety systems, automation, storage facilities and transportation. Book ends with common legislation acts and comparison of different legislation acts of major oil/gas producing nations. The book is aimed at professionals and researchers in petroleum engineering, offshore technology, subsea engineering, and Explores the engineering, technology, system, environmental, operational and legislation aspects of offshore productions systems Covers most of the subsea engineering material in a concise manner Includes legislation of major oil and gas producing nations pertaining to offshore operations (oil and gas) Incorporates case studies of major offshore operations (oil and gas) accidents and lessons learnt Discusses environment impact of offshore operations

Shashi Shekhar Prasad Singh, Graduated in Petroleum Engineering from I.I.T (I.S.M) Dhanbad in the year 1969, has served The National Oil Company of India, ONGC for nearly 4 decades at senior positions in its operations and R&D activities. At the Institute of Oil & Gas Production technology (IOGPT)-a R&D wing of ONGC, he was responsible for identification/assimilation of prospective new technology for offshore and played a key role in Deep water development ventures in Indian offshore. As head of the Offshore Development Group at the IOGPT in late nineties, he significantly contributed by introducing innovative ideas and cost cutting technology which helped to develop many small and marginal offshore fields at later date. He presented a status paper on oil & gas scenario in Indian Deep water in Deep Tech- 95 (An International conference organized under the Aggies of Ministry of Petroleum & Natural Gas, Government of India. It helped in bridging the Technology gap and mobilizing huge resources, required for Deep water development in India. He has been associated with Pandit Deendayal Petroleum University, since Yr- 2008, as Adjunct Professor and has been teaching Offshore Operations along with other Petroleum Engineering courses. Jatin Agarwal has joined PDPU as Manager SPT. He holds degree in Bachelors in Chemical Engineering from VNSGU and two Masters in Petroleum engineering from PDPU as well as University of Tulsa. He has around 9 years of research experience in flow assurance and artificial lift systems. He adds to his credit several papers published in different journals and conferences on topics related to flow assurance for onshore and offshore. He is currently involved teaching and teaching related administrative jobs at PDPU. His teaching profile includes pipeline engineering, offshore operations and advance drilling technology at under graduate level. Presently, he has established state of art Drilling Stimulation and Cementation Research Center catering offshore and onshore needs in India. The research center focuses on designing of High Temperature and High Pressure drilling fluids, cement slurries and frac fluids for offshore operations. In addition, the center also has expanded its horizon for study of Enhanced oil recovery for both onshore and offshore fields. He is providing consultancy services from PDPU side to ONGC, OIL, JTI, Selan Explorations and many other oil and gas companies on different operational aspect. He has successfully delivered scale-up theory for prediction of wax deposition in offshore operations. Nag Mani is an alumnus of BIT Mesra, Electrical Engineering department. Over a career spanning 35 years in upstream hydrocarbon sector he has worked with Oil and natural Gas Corporation (ONGC), Reliance Industries Ltd (RIL) and Gujarat State Petroleum Corporation (GSPC). At ONGC he worked on onshore and offshore divisions like SHP, which is one of the biggest offshore platforms of ONGC. He started working with RIL in Subsea division of the KGD6 Project, the first Deep sea project in India and a leading project in India. His responsibilities included execution of different type of Subsea jobs ranging from Installation of equipment like Subsea X-Mass tree from MSV to Inspection, Maintenance and Repair / Replacement jobs in Subsea. With GSPC he worked with Offshore Projects like Deendayal field in East coast of India for Subsea Inspection, Maintenance and Repair division with additional responsibility of debottlenecking works for Offshore and Onshore Operation. Deendayal field is a Sour gas field with H2S and CO2 presence in gas.
