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.

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
Promo video for the Boskalis Total Mining Division. ' The Journey of a Boskalis Dredge ' by Royal Boskalis Westminster © Visuals Studio Brazil June 2012 The documentary shows the impressive mobilization mission of a Boskalis dredge ship and its supporting vessels through the jungle of Suriname. Boskalis contracted Dutch transport experts for the mobilization of 'The Orion' vessel from AbuDhabi to the bauxite mine at Lelydorp near Paramaribo.
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.
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...
- 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...
A look at work on an offshore oil rig in Azerbaijan.
Over 1000 residents of Newcastle gathered on Sunday in searing heat to show their dismay at Asset Energy’s approval to conduct the underwater seismic blasting, which has been shown to cause serious environmental harm to marine life.

Oig Rig "The World’s Largest Oil Rig" – Big Bigger Biggest| National Geographic documentary This film reveals the technological leaps forward that have allowed the world’s largest Oil Platform – the Perdido Spar in the Gulf of Mexico - to be built. The Perdido Spar sits in deeper water than any other oil platform, in an ocean over 2 kilometres deep. This floating factory is capable of drilling in any direction, and in depths of up to 3 kilometres below the sea floor. At maximum production it can generate enough oil daily to fill 132,000 cars with petrol. This film explores how this groundbreaking structure was made possible through a series of six engineering breakthroughs. The film explores how six landmark oil platforms – including the Beryl Alpha platform - each feature a major technolo...
The 2012 launching of my 10" gold dredge for it's first full season. We built it in 2011 reusing pontoons we bought from a failed operation. Since I got recruited to become a partner on the CdP, the largest gold mining suction dredge in the United States, I leased this out to my friend Zeke. Zeke, Emily, and John will be using it on a new TV show called Bering Sea Gold. See more stories and pictures on my websites: http://www.safonatt.com http://www.facebook.com/safonattservices
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.
