Offshore Oil & Gas

Oil PlatformThe petroleum industry is one of the world's most important industries in every sense: economically, technically, environmentally and politically. It includes the processes of exploration, extraction, refining, transportation and marketing of petroleum products.

Petroleum is vital to many industries and is of critical concern for most nations. Between 30 and 50% of the world's energy consumption is accounted for by oil. In Europe it is around 30% and in Asia it is more than 50%.

Gradually more of the exploration and production has become offshore based, which has – amongst other things – greatly increased the focus on the environment and pollution protection.

Offshore oil and gas production is more challenging than land-based installations, due to the remote and often harsher environment. Much of the innovation in the offshore petroleum sector is focused on these challenges and has been compared by some to the challenges of the space industry.

These technical challenges have resulted in a great need for highly skilled professionals within the oil and gas industry globally.
