Tasks in Offshore Energy

Energy experts have been predicting an end to carbon-based energy for years now. Although it is probably possible to drain our energy out of oil and gas fields for decades to come, the world has to think about new ways to keep our cars running, our refrigerators cooling and our plants producing. The predictions by experts, together with warming of the earth, at least partly to be blamed on carbon dioxide emissions, have also lead to more and more environmental awareness. Plans for offshore wind farms are being made everywhere; quite a few have already been built. Europe is leading... (read more)

Offshore Environmental Surveys

Introduction to UK Legislation and Guidelines
This is a brief introduction to UK offshore marine environmental survey legislation and guidelines, written from a fairly narrow perspective: that of a contractor providing such survey services to the oil & gas industry. Legislation requires environmental surveys of the North Sea but the extent and definition of these is open to interpretation, with quite a variety of standards and guidelines to choose from or ignore. Legal FrameworkUK environmental legislation transposes European Community (EC) directives on the environment. The prime EC directives are Council Directive 92/43 ‘on the Conservation of Natural Habitats and of Wild Fauna and Flora’ (‘the Habitats... (read more)
