Condeep Section[edit]

The Condeep section of this article is seriously flawed; the style is all over the place and contains all sorts of grammatical errors. I don't have time to fix it atm, perhaps it can be revisited. 98.223.198.131 (talk) 13:02, 12 December 2013 (UTC)

Oil platform vs oil rigs[edit]

Generally in the offshore oil and gas industry there is a distinction between platforms - where oil/gas are produced - and rigs - where drilling is done. Platforms tend to be fixed in position, while rigs are more mobile (it is also possible to have a drilling platform for a fixed drilling facility, usually located alongside a production platform). This article is pretty good, but reading it there is some use of the word "rig" where it would be better to stick to the term "platform". The article is pretty good, and I'm only a newbie, so I hesitate to edit it myself.

Your comments are correct. There is a need to create an article entitled Offshore drilling rig or some similar title and then to move all the offshore rig literature to it. The confusion arises because many offshore platforms have drilling rigs during their initial phases. Once all the wells are drilled for a specific platform, these drilling rigs are disassabled and moved elsewhere. I would also recommend retitling this article to Offshore production platform. I'd do it, but I don't have the patience. --129.173.105.28 22:27, 17 November 2005 (UTC)

I am always seeing people getting mixed up between platforms and rigs, especiall by in the media. It is not entirely true that the rig leaves the platform once the well is drilled. Most platforms have many conductor slots which are used for future wells. The rigs used on platforms are aptly named platform rigs and usually go from platform to platform drilling new wells. It is not uncommon for them to return to the same platform several times a year. Workover rigs are also common place on platforms; these rigs are used to service the wells.

Another huge misconception, given by the media, is that oil companies own the rigs although this is hardly ever the case. The DeepWater Horizon (GOM) was not owned by BP. Bonus 5 points if you can name the company that owned it without researching it.


nice article

cooler than rigs

I agree with the comments above. Actually, the page should be retitled Offshore platform, since some platforms are dedicated to drilling and hosting trees and wellheads, others to accommodation, a few to storage. Then "offshore production platform" could be just a subset. And I would certainly avoid calling them "OIL platforms", since many deal with natural gas only. 134.163.255.25 (talk) 17:38, 21 October 2008 (UTC)

Currently the article points out "or, somewhat incorrectly, oil rig, ", but the only way I could see to find out why this is somewhat incorrect is in the talk pages. --81.149.74.231 (talk) 13:16, 11 July 2012 (UTC)

Semi-submersible section confusing[edit]

Most of the semi-subs I've worked on have relied on their submerged pontoons for their bouyancy, rather than their legs. Actually there's a lot of planning in *reducing* the bouyancy in the columns, because of it's effects on the wave response and motion characteristics of the intallation. "Installation" is the generic term that's used for "somewhere people fly out to work on in the oilfield", and which doesn't differentiate between it being involved in planning (survey boats), drilling (drilling rigs), producing (production platforms), pumping (pumping stations and manifolds), storage (FPSOs), tankering (tankers), dive interventions (dive support vessels) ... or any of the other myriad of services needed. To a helicopter company, they're all the same. User 129.173.105.28 above appears to be confusing drilling rigs *on* installations with jack-up style drilling rigs positioned alongside an installation and doing the drilling for the installation when their derrick is "cantilevered out" over the installations wellhead module. I can see that I'm going to have to try to find some module layout plans for various rig types.


I saw a ship today which seemed stationary and had about 4 tall columns. This was in Vizag, India. Please share any knowledge. Thanks.

largest oil platform[edit]

This article states that Hibernia is the largest oil platform. Later it says "Oil Rocks is still quite unique as the world's first and largest oil platform." Which is the largest? Ydorb 17:46, 4 June 2006 (UTC)

Size[edit]

This now is getting biased like so many articles where the US companies needs to show themselves as best and biggest. You have pictures from construction of some of the largest constructions in the world - that even exceeds the size of the space vehicle assembly building at Cape Kennedy. Now I just wonder why you do not bother to list them as when you start comparing things. The day the "Not Invented Here" syndrome hits Wikipedia - it is the end of the site. So US contributors: I do not bother to correct, until the author of the article asks me, but be careful - size matters, and do not look in the US any longer for the biggest and most advanced.--KH Flottorp 12:04, 14 May 2007 (UTC)

Free Design[edit]

I wana idea for basic design of platforms???? ... that will cost you a cool $10 mln --KH Flottorp 12:04, 14 May 2007 (UTC)

What about H2S Safety Techs/Medics?[edit]

What about the Hydrogen Sulfide safety techs that maintain the SCBA equipment and fire equipment, make sure all employees are working within safety guidelines, do the platform orientations, run escape pod drills, and are EMTs and Paramedics responsible for the medical treatment of injuried persons on the rig. (In North America as some rigs have a full medical staff) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.84.176.146 (talk) 14:50, 5 July 2008 (UTC)

its a well organized article. keep it up wikipedia —Preceding unsigned comment added by 81.199.51.235 (talk) 13:17, 10 March 2009 (UTC)

Oil Rocks photo[edit]

I added a photo of the Oil Rocks in Azerbaijan under the history headline, which is a oil-producing town on water created in 1947. Neftchi (talk) 18:31, 20 July 2009 (UTC)

National Safety regulations, shutoff equipment?[edit]

The article has no content to ANY safety equipment, procedures or precautions. Any suggestions? Hoffmansk 15:37, 2 May 2010 (UTC)

a run down of the Blow out Preventer, historical failures and future improvements would be usefull. I think this entire article will require significant rewriting following investigations of the Deepwater Horizon disaster. cheers —Preceding unsigned comment added by 144.131.73.86 (talk) 06:54, 21 May 2010 (UTC)

Image of types[edit]

Deepwater drilling systems.png

Useful image of types, but I am not familiar with the terminology used in the image. --Snek01 (talk) 18:58, 4 May 2010 (UTC)

Investigation of potential Copyright Issue[edit]

The introduction is also "too similar" to the source. --Andreateletrabajo (talk) 22:34, 23 June 2011 (UTC)

You're right, it is an exact copypaste. It's been added to WP:CP.  A p3rson  01:12, 24 June 2011 (UTC)
It's a backwardscopy/mirror of this article from 2006 or 2007ish. I left a BC tag above.--NortyNort (Holla) 11:25, 1 July 2011 (UTC)
I don´t understand. Why is use as reference, then? Delete the link in that case. --Andreateletrabajo (talk) 21:21, 4 July 2011 (UTC)
Maybe it was a sly way to linkspam. Anyway, you should go ahead and delete the link... except I already have. :) (For reference, the link is in the copyright-related box at the top of this page.) — Epastore (talk) 02:27, 5 July 2011 (UTC)

hello there, am Godwin ubong ,am looking for a job on oil platform and rig my e mail is (godwinubong@hotmail.com )my number is +27833144079 thanks — Preceding unsigned comment added by 41.132.149.209 (talk) 09:16, 10 April 2013 (UTC)

Oil from expensive oil extraction: never to be used[edit]

According to Robert Litterman (Kepos Capital), the expensive oil dug from oil sands, undersea deposits, ... will never be used, due to the fact that only 1/3 of all fossil fuels can actually be mined any more, due to the 2°C limit. As such, only 1/3 of those deposits is still financially of value, and the rest will have no value any more. Things are hence becoming a race to mine everything, at the lowest cost, and expensive oil extraction methods will hence fall out of the boat.

Seems important to add this info to the article, so please do.

Gapfiller (talk) 19:26, 16 December 2016 (UTC)It is important and interesting news.
