  1. The madness continues.

    Each of the drillships will be designed to operate in 12,000 ft of water and drill wells to 40,000 ft. The drillships will feature Transocean's patented dual-activity drilling technology and have a variable deckload capacity of 23,000 tonnes.

    The newbuilds will be outfitted with two 15,000 psi blowout preventers, which are expected to reduce customer nonproductive time between wells. The four drillships will be able to accommodate a future upgrade to a 20,000 psi BOP when available.
    12,000 ft of water - thats nice.Macondo was only in 5,000 ft of water and they were at their limit there.
    Everyone now knows BOPS don't always work.
    15,000 - 20,000 psi sounds fine,except pressures can far exceed this.
    30,000 - 35,000 psi in remote deep water - then what ?


    Chevron Corp. and drilling contractor Transocean Ltd. have each received injunctions giving them 30 days to stop operating in Brazil stemming from an oil seep in Frade field offshore Brazil during 2011.
    The operator with 51.74% interest, Chevron started production at Frade field in 2009 (OGJ Online, June 23, 2009). Partners in the field are Petroleo Brasileiro 30%, and Frade Japao Petroleo Ltda., a joint venture of Inpex Corp., Sojitz Corp., and Japan Oil, Gas & Metals Corp. 18.26%.


    God help us,this is pathetic !

    Australia : Western Australia at the forefront of international carbon research

    Launching the project today, the Minister for Science and Research, Senator Chris Evans, said the NGL will be one of the most significant international centres for research, training and technology development for the global resources sector. "Effective carbon capture and storage technologies are key to securing Australia's clean energy future and reducing global warming," Senator Evans said. "The commercial use of carbon capture and storage technologies is expected to drive significant emissions reductions in Australia's electricity generation sector. "The NGL will provide critical research to develop innovative solutions to minimise any risk associated with the long term storage of CO2." Lead agency CSIRO received $48.4 million from the Federal Government's Education Investment Fund for the project.


    The fraccing fluids ARE in the water - at last.

    With the release of a new study on water contamination in Pavillion, Wyoming the U.S. Geological Survey has just put its two cents into the debate over whether or not the natural gas drilling method called fracking puts water supplies at risk. The results do not look good for the natural gas industry. The findings, which appear to confirm an earlier study of water contamination in Pavillion by the U.S. EPA, provide more hard evidence that the chemicals used in fracking are getting into drinking water supplies.

    Mrs. Kirchner and Miguel Galuccio, the head of recently nationalized Argentine oil company YPF SA, spoke to Exxon Mobil Chief Executive Officer Rex Tillerson about unconventional hydrocarbon development in Argentina

    Argentina has the world's third-largest shale-based, unconventional hydrocarbon resources, after the U.S. and China, according to Mr. Galuccio.

    Mr. Galuccio, 44, who worked at oil field services giant Schlumberger before accepting his new post in May, also met with banks and investment funds
