How to Power Offshore Oil & Gas Rigs? Current & Future Trends

Another method used to power offshore oil rigs is to use wind farms. Again Norway is leading the way – discussions are underway to build 11 floating offshore wind turbines in the Gullfaks and Snorre oil fields. It is thought the turbines can supply the 5 platforms with up to 35% of their power needs, cutting CO2 emissions by 200,000 tonnes ...

Offshore concrete structure - Wikipedia

Offshore concrete structures have been in use successfully for about 30 years. They serve the same purpose as their steel counterparts in the oil and gas production and storage. The first concrete oil platform has been installed in the North Sea in the Ekofisk field in 1973 by Phillips Petroleum.Since then 47 major concrete offshore structures have been built.

Floating wind turbine - Wikipedia

A floating wind turbine is an offshore wind turbine mounted on a floating structure that allows the turbine to generate electricity in water depths where fixed-foundation turbines are not feasible. Floating wind farms have the potential to significantly increase the sea area available for offshore wind farms, especially in countries with limited shallow waters, such as Japan.
