The latest statistic depicts the number of offshore rigs installations worldwide equal to 1470. As of this point, there were 213 in the Gulf of Mexico, 184 in the North Sea and 170 in South East Asia, closing the top three leading regions*.
In offshore production, oil and gas are extracted from the wells and brought to the surface to a host facility above the ocean surface. The type of facility depends on the location, water depth, climate and the facility’s size and capabilities. Environmental, safety, stakeholder and financial issues are also considered when selecting among the options.
The Offshore Platform extracts and processes the Oil and Gas coming from the Subsea Wellheads. The Oil is temporarily stored in the platform and then transferred to the Shore through a Subsea Pipeline or a Shuttle Tanker.
The Harshest Environments
The major challenge of supplying equipment to offshore Oil & Gas projects is its most demanding scenarios for reliability, specifications stringency and ultimate safety. Besides, diverse applications and fluid handling require unique pumping technology solutions and equipment customization for each and single project execution.
