  • Latest developments in the microwave processing of oil contaminated drill cuttings

    The paper presents very recent results from a novel continuous, pilot scale microwave treatment process for the continuous treatment of oil contaminated drill cuttings. The requirements of a commercial scale system are outlined, and the necessary scale-up challenges are highlighted. The process has been developed for the remediation of contaminated drill cuttings at source, i.e. on offshore oil platforms of remote installations, with minimal demand for utilities and a very small footprint. The process separates the contaminant oil from the drill cuttings, leading to an inert solid material and an oil product that can potentially be reused within the mud system. The process can remediate the cuttings to below 0.1% oil. The unique heating mechanisms obtained using microwave treatment mean that the recovered oil is not degraded as can be the case with conventional thermal desorption or mechanical processes. The energy requirements are of the order of 100 kWh per tonne of cuttings treated, significantly lower than current technologies. This process has the potential to replace ship-to-shore practices for drill cuttings treatment, and provide a remediation option with a significantly lower energy requirement and CO2 footprint than existing technologies.

  • Commercial and Military Diving in the United States Today

    The history of man's endeavors in diving is traced from its inception several thousand years ago through the introduction and validation of saturation diving techniques. Today both military and commercial divers are capable of diving to deep depths for unlimited bottom times using saturation diving systems. An overview of the varied diving missions routinely performed by the military and commercial sectors is presented in three broad categories--unique military missions requiring highly specialized breathing equipment, relatively shallow surface supported diving operations and saturation diving. Analysis reveals a very limited need for deep diving in the military whereas the commercial diving sector is thriving in meeting the demands for saturation diving in support of the offshore petroleum industry. A review of the types of underwater breathing apparatus used by conventional and saturation divers today is offered as well as an assessment of future trends to satisfy the deep diving needs of the 21st century.

  • Managing harmonics and resonance with active harmonic filters in an offshore ring main oil field

    An international oil company acquired and modified the power supply for a number of offshore oil platforms in one field to conserve operating costs for fuel for the generators. This was accomplished by installation of a 33 kV undersea cabling system between the platforms. The resultant harmonic voltage distortion at the generators and on each platform created major safety concerns due to the explosion proof environments on the platforms and the large voltage resonance potential. The use of nonlinear devices has made the electrical world a lot more complex. AC and DC motor speed controls contribute to the harmonic current and voltage distortion directly and are widely used on off shore platforms for many uses. There are both medium and low voltage drives employed. Active harmonic filters bring a new perspective for solving the problems associated with harmonic distortion and displacement power factor correction. But not all active harmonic filters are created equal. This paper reviews the reasons for the excessive harmonic distortion and presents the first step to resolving the problem.

  • Development of a lift-boat suitable for offshore aquaculture logistics

    Aquaculture ventures operating in the open ocean environment will require enormous logistic planning and support to ensure success. These operations will have the logistic requirements associated with near-shore operations, plus a new set of issues associated with the higher energy of the site and distance from shore. In the Gulf of Mexico, previous visions have married open-ocean aquaculture with the existing oil/gas industry. However, liabilities either to the platform owner/operator or against platform abandonment upon completion of the aquaculture venture, and safety and appropriateness of oil/gas platforms not specifically designed for offshore aquaculture limit this relationship. As an alternative, commercialization of aquaculture in the open ocean will benefit from the development of specialized aquaculture support vessels (ASVs). These innovative craft or barges will be designed for efficient cage servicing, harvesting and hauling of fish, and optimizing routine tasks associated with open-ocean fish farms. We will present the development of a lift-boat (or "jack-up" barge) designed specifically for the needs of an open-ocean aquaculture industry as one ASV solution. Design requirements include a safe working environment, a helicopter-pad, sufficient living space for workers, adequate feed storage, maintenance and office space, fish health and environmental monitoring laboratory, and a crane capable of lowering and raising a farm work boat and feed.

  • Grid integration of offshore wind farms and offshore oil/gas platforms

    Wind resource nearby offshore oil/gas platforms is often excellent due to higher average wind speed and lower turbulence intensity and wind shear compared to most onshore wind farm sites. Moreover, offshore oil/gas platforms are facing increasingly tougher challenges to operate in an environmentally acceptable manner. The main objective of this paper is to propose a feasible electrical grid layout for the wind farm integration into the offshore oil/gas platform and onshore AC grid and to design the system control strategy and analyze the power system stability. Two dynamic simulation cases are set up based on PSCAD/EMTDC, i.e. losing wind farm production and occurrence of onshore short circuit fault for studying transient behavior of the electrical network.

  • Hybrid electrical generation stand-alone systems application in offshore satellite oil platforms in Mexico

    One of the principal challenges that face the electrical generation stand- alone systems (EGSAS) in unsupervised installations classified as hazardous locations (Class I, Division 2) is to guarantee the permanent supply of the demanded electrical energy with a high degree of reliability. In the case of offshore satellite oil platforms (uninhabited), there exist critical electrical loads like measurement, control, communication, and process supervision devices. In this kind of application, especially when the strong power required onboard is less than 1KW, hybrid EGSAS which use photovoltaic (PV) modules as main generation source and a gas generator set as secondary source, is an adequate and mature technological choice to assume the above mentioned challenge. In this work it is described some of the advantages and disadvantages inherent to the application of the hybrid EGSAS in satellite offshore oil platforms (uninhabited), as a result of the evaluation carried out to a group of systems installed at the Zone of Campeche in the Gulf of Mexico (GoM). As well, a brief description of the main components which are parts of the balance of system is done; underlying the importance of an adequate system sizing in order to maximize the operative availability of the EGSAS, as such as, increase its reliability as electrical supply with minimal maintenance.

  • Automatic detection of oil spills in ERS SAR images

    The authors present algorithms for the automatic detection of oil spills in SAR images. The developed framework consists of first detecting dark spots in the image, then computing a set of features for each dark spot, before the spot is classified as either an oil slick or a "lookalike" (other oceanographic phenomena which resemble oil slicks). The classification rule is constructed by combining statistical modeling with a rule-based approach. Prior knowledge about the higher probability for the presence of oil slicks around ships and oil platforms is incorporated into the model. In addition, knowledge about the external conditions like wind level and slick surroundings are taken into account. The presented algorithms are tested on 84 SAR images. The algorithm can discriminate between oil slicks and lookalikes with high accuracy, 94% of the oil slicks and 99% of the lookalikes were correctly classified.

  • Spatial analysis of the electromagnetic bias in radar altimetry

    Measurements of the electromagnetic bias have shown that bias increases with wind speed until about 11 m/s and then begins to decrease. Two possible causes are investigated. First, it could be due to a shift in the backscatter power modulation to the forward or rear face of the wave crests. Second, it could be due to the backscatter power becoming more homogenous throughout the wave profile. These two possibilities are tested using data collected from an oil platform in the Gulf of Mexico during a six-month period in 1990. This study is novel because it uses knowledge of the spatial distribution of both the backscatter and wave displacement for the study of the electromagnetic bias. Both causes outlined above contribute to the bias decrease, but the second cause seems to be the dominant effect. This study is in support of the upcoming mission of the NASA/CNES Jason-1 altimeter.
