Preface to Offshore Petroleum Drilling and Production


The 1970s was a decade when the search to grasp petroleum drilling and manufacturing operations offshore acquired a brand new impetus. It was a time when international oil manufacturing surged on the heels of a quickly rising world economic system.

India joined the bandwagon of offshore oil producing nations in 1974 following a momentous discovery of Bombay Excessive. Whereas oil producing nations rejoiced on the acquisition of captive sources, the dearth of particular strategies and gear loomed onerously.

The issue was additional exacerbated by a extreme dearth of expert manpower, an indispensable part for guaranteeing environment friendly execution of initiatives. Nations, nevertheless, geared as much as the wants of the hour and made appropriate investments in constructing infrastructure whereas setting directives for bettering manpower competency.

Staff, straight or not directly associated to the petroleum sector, engineers and younger fanatics had been pushed each by want and curiosity to study offshore petroleum operations. Therefore, the stage for additional inquiry and analysis on this new area (offshore operations) was set.

Tutorial establishments served as fruitful autos of data dissemination thereby producing a gentle useful resource of competent manpower. The Indian College of Mines was a forerunner of such universities in India.

Towards this finish, a course titled ‘Offshore Drilling and Production Practices’ was launched within the undergraduate curriculum of Petroleum Engineering. I had the privilege of instructing this course for a few years.

One distinguishing and considerably uncomfortable side of this course was the dearth of a complete textbook on E & P operation. Although some books had been accessible, none had coated the topic in its entirety.

The supply of instructing was primarily the manuals and catalogs of various organizations, journals, convention proceedings and some supplies from skilled coaching packages. Quick and easy accessibility to digital literature within the late twentieth century, courtesy of the Web, made ‘staying abreast’ with the newest extra handy.

Expertise development in deepwater operations has been a big contributor in present instances and deserves a particular be aware.

Although the digital age made buying info lots simpler, there was no ‘single’ useful resource that addressed the fundamentals of offshore E & P operations comprehensively. Throughout the 30 years I taught this course, I felt a powerful urge to compile and articulate my understanding of the topic.

Thus, it appeared windfall was at play when the affiliate editor of Taylor  & Francis Group gave a proposal to publish a guide on E & P operations. I lastly had the required avenue to deal with the ‘lacking hyperlink’.

The guide is primarily addressed to undergraduate and graduate college students of petroleum engineering, although rookies within the petroleum trade can profit from its perusal, too.

General, the guide is meant to function a ‘prepared reference’ on E & P operations for practitioners and teachers alike. It was my intention to focus solely on offshore drilling, completion, and manufacturing with the ‘ready’ reader in thoughts.

Therefore, I didn’t plan on expounding on the stipulations wanted to grasp these operations. When a draft content material was circulated for evaluation, nevertheless, it was recommended that the fundamentals be coated, too.

The guide in its current kind assumes no prior information. It begins with a historic be aware adopted by an introduction to the fundamentals of geology and reservoir engineering. The following part offers a glimpse of the varied elements that pose the actual problem to offshore actions.

The next part (Chapter 3) introduces the idea of various offshore constructions required for finishing up operations like drilling and manufacturing.

Design facets have been omitted, although, as there are sufficient wonderful books on ‘design of offshore constructions’ and additionally as a result of the target of this guide is to concentrate on operational facets. So, all related subjects essential for a newbie to grasp the operations besides design are coated.

The reader is referred to the references of a specific chapter if certainly the necessity for additional inquiry is felt. Subsequent sections (Chapters 4, 5 and 6) are devoted to drilling, completion, and manufacturing. These chapters initially cope with the fundamentals of the person operations and then concentrate on their utility offshore.

It’s hoped that the presentation of subjects is such that even a novice can grasp the topic simply. A particular function of the presentation is the systematic protection of subjects within the context of above and underwater methods.

Such an ordering of subjects was maintained with the hope {that a} reader continuing serially would get higher readability. It’s value mentioning right here that in Chapter 4 underneath ‘Offshore Drilling’, the present subjects like UBD, MPD and DGD and drilling by salt to sub-salt layers have been included that are fairly related within the context of offshore drilling.

Historically, storage and pipeline operators have been handled as appendages to the extra ‘central’ manufacturing operations. Such a collective therapy blurs the necessary distinguishing function of every particularly within the case of offshore.

These subjects are mentioned individually in Chapters 7 and 8 for the aim of avoiding ambiguity in understanding. Moreover, these two subjects have vital relevance for downstream operations of oil and fuel which validates a extra expansive therapy.

It’s hoped that such an association would facilitate comprehension. Any underwater operation requires particular help from both a diver, an ROV or each.

Any offshore operation with out these two companies can’t be imagined and by not mentioning them this guide would have remained incomplete. Therefore, the inclusion of Chapter 9 which offers solely with divers and ROV.

An important consideration within the context of offshore operation is security, notably for all personnel working away from the shore for prolonged intervals of time. It’s completely essential to grasp the toll such adversarial working circumstances have on their well being.

Environmental air pollution is not any much less necessary for the environmentalist which in fact is equally dangerous to human beings and animals. Chapter 10, due to this fact, is absolutely devoted to addressing considerations of well being, security and the setting.

Within the technique of getting ready the manuscript, assist was sought from many. On this regard I categorical particular gratitude to 2 of my colleagues from the Division of Utilized Geology, Dr. Syed Tajdarul Hassan and Dr. Ajoy Kumar Bhaumik, who made a big contribution in drafting the subchapter on ‘Background of Geology’.

I want to acknowledge the beneficiant cooperation of all my colleagues within the Division of Petroleum Engineering who supplied help by offering appropriate supplies of their space of specialisation.

I’d additionally prefer to acknowledge the contribution of the authors who’ve been referred to by their publications and are included within the ‘References’ on the finish of every chapter.

A few of the illustrations in types of figures and drawings are taken from the literature or pamphlets of assorted organisations to whom I categorical my honest gratitude.

It could be unwise on my half if I didn’t point out the contribution of two folks with out whose assist and help this work would haven’t been potential.

They’re Mr. Rabi Kumar Talukdar, who painstakingly typed out the entire manuscript from my handwritten materials, and Mr. Himangshu Kakati, analysis fellow underneath my supervision, who drew the figures electronically and organised these information, taken from completely different sources, in a single folder.

Towards the final section, certainly one of my PG college students, Mr. Krishan Patidar, helped me within the remaining compilation and my youngest son, Joyaditya, helped along with his precious criticism and solutions. My due to them as effectively. Undoubtedly their contribution is commendable.

Final however not least I acknowledge the contribution of all my college students who by their interactions, seminar/time period paper shows and steady queries a couple of textbook on this topic motivated and enriched the endeavour. I sincerely hope that the guide might be as attention-grabbing to learn because it was to write down.
