Offshore diamond mining is a relatively new science. The process has been refined by diamond producer Debmarine Namibia, which is a joint venture between DeBeers and the government of Namibia. Angelo Coppola spent some time on board one of their vessels 40 kilometers off the Namibian coast.

Designed by Marin Teknikk and built by Kleven Verft, Norway, the US$157 million vessel will enable Debmarine Namibia, a 50/50 joint venture between the Government of the Republic of Namibia and De Beers Group, to explore diamond deposits and secure diamond supply in the country well into the future

The footage of the Borgholm Dolphin installation was captured at the weekend by James Eaton, an offshore worker on the nearby Lomond Platform, around 145 miles east of Aberdeen.

- Like our Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/oilvips - Oil and gas are generated from a source rock, organic matter buried in the depths of the earth. Once formed, they climb back towards the surface. On their way, cap rocks can impede their progress and they accumulate in reservoir rocks. Here they constitute hydrocarbon fields, which can be identified by interpreting seismic data (a sort of echography). The data is obtained with the help of a seismic ship. To confirm the interpretations of seismic data, two types of drilling gear exist. Each is adapted to a range of depth of water (down to more than 2500 meters). The platform seen here is a semi-submersible, which floats and retains its stabilised position by means of anchors fixed on the seabed. Platforms at sea are used not only f...
After 22 hours, the crew of the Maersk Interceptor have assembled and lowered 551 feet of pipes into the water. Through them, a hydraulic hammer will operate to drive these pipes 131 feet below the seafloor. From: MIGHTY SHIPS: Maersk Interceptor http://bit.ly/2biRHN1
Canadian mining company Nautilus Minerals has reached an agreement with the government of Papua New Guinea to begin mining an area of seabed believed to be rich in gold and copper ores, according to the BBC. Under the terms of the agreement, Papua New Guinea will contribute $120 million to the operation and receive a 15 percent share in the mine. Environmentalists say the mine will devastate the area and cause long-lasting damage to the environment. The BBC reports that "the mine will target an area of hydrothermal vents where superheated, highly acidic water emerges from the seabed, where it encounters far colder and more alkaline seawater, forcing it to deposit high concentrations of minerals." The report continues: The result is that the seabed is formed of ores that are far ric...
Perdido is the deepest floating oil rig (platform) in the world at a water depth of about 2450 meters operated by the Shell Oil Company in the Gulf of Mexico. The Perdido is located in the Perdido fold belt which is a rich discovery of crude oil and natural gas that lies in water that is nearly 8000 feet deep. The platform's peak production will be 100,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day. At 267 meters, the Perdido is nearly as tall as the Eiffel Tower. An oil rig is a large structure with facilities to drill wells, to extract and process oil and natural gas, and to temporarily store product until it can be brought to shore for refining and marketing. In many cases, the platform contains facilities to house the workforce as well.

They are virtual cities stuck in the middle of some of the most dangerous seas on earth. Life on them is hard and fraught with danger from calamitous fires a. Animation of deepwater drilling. Drilling wells is one of the most important activities in the process of finding hydrocarbon reservoirs and producing oil and gas from these reservoirs to me. Auxillary Drilling Supervisor, Louise takes us through her daily life onboard the Deepsea Metro I drill ship. Louise overseas the team that make up the drill.
A 2011 video my wife made showing an excavator gold dredge called the Christine Rose mining for gold offshore Nome. A couple smaller 6" dredges are mining on the same lease about a mile away. In 2014, the Christine Rose was the 6th largest offshore gold dredge in Nome. A camera crew can be seen filming aboard this vessel, which was later featured on the TV show Bering Sea Gold.
