The Outer Continental Shelf National Center of Expertise has released its latest issue of Drill Down, an outreach and knowledge management tool designed to educate those involved with or interested in the OCS world of work, and to help generate discussion within the OCS community. The goal is to “drill down” the answers to questions regarding the OCS industry.
After successfully drilling an offshore well that bears hydrocarbons, a means to extract and process the discovered energy resources is needed. OCS production facilities serve this purpose, producing and separating oil and gas prior to transporting to shore. In this issue of Drill Down, the OCS NCOE will explore the regulatory compliance standards for the various categories of OCS production facilities.
