oil and gas offshore platform

what is a platform? The oil and gas contained in the bowels of the earth turned out to be not only below the land but also below the seabed. To take it, of course, we need an equipment (structure) supporting with advanced technology that can survive the fierce sea waves. Offshore platforms are structures or buildings built offshore to support the exploration or exploitation of oil and gas. Usually, offshore platforms have a drilling rig that functions to analyze the geological properties of the reservoir and to make holes that allow the extraction of petroleum reserves or natural gas from the reservoir. Most of the platforms are located offshore from the continental shelf. With technological advances and rising prices of crude oil, drilling and production in deeper waters have become more feasible and economical. A platform may have about thirty drill bits. Directional drilling allows drill wells to be accessed at two different depths and also in a remote position and spreads to a radius of 5 miles (8 kilometers) from the platform. Distant underwater wells can also be connected to platforms with pipelines. Underwater systems (subsea system) can consist of one or several wells connected to the manifold (center[…]

my first problem as junior mechanical engineer

I still remember when I graduated from Mechanical Engineering and directly facing the real world (petrochemical – oil and gas downstream) and nervous in the face of problems in the field that demanded the requirements of a mechanical engineer in understanding a problem quickly, and sometimes need ingenuity – the able to bridge between the theory of higher education and the world of work. The longer working on the front line maintenance – in terms of troubleshooting – enriches us in understanding the problems of the next process. According to my opinion, troubleshooting problems in the field is often a simple matter, but sometimes it becomes complicated because it does not know where to go start it. This happens because of a failure to understand the problem. Failure will have an impact on the efficacy or not a given solution. From the experience of troubleshooting, I find that almost all the problems, the reason is simple for young engineers or field workers, hopefully, can make this my experience as a passion for finish the job because it’s not complicated-very complicated. The stories in this blog are meant as examples of cases that can be used as initial provisions, or enrich[…]
