Production

Abstract

Offshore oil and gas production is more challenging than land-based installations due to the remote and harsher environment and a large part of the innovation in the offshore petroleum and gas exploration and recovery (production) sector concerns overcoming these challenges, including the need to provide very large production facilities. This chapter focuses on production and drilling facilities as well as the types of platforms and the dynamic nature of the platforms and the many challenges for offshore drilling and production facilities.
