The video shows scientific ocean drilling and coring technology. Scientific Deep Sea Drilling Vessel CHIKYU is the state-of-the-art research vessel exploring the deep earth by sampling, measuring and monitoring operated by JAMSTEC. The Earth deep below the seafloor contains a unique record of our planet's evolution and structure. Scientists study the sub-seafloor to better understand Earth's components, history, and phenomena. This research helps us answer questions about fundamental aspects of our planet such as the environment, the biosphere, solid earth cycles, and geodynamics. 00:00 The process of deep sea drilling 04:04 Rotary drilling 05:23 Riser drilling system 07:30 Coring procedure 10:38 Core sample processing More about the research vessel CHIKYU, http://www.jamstec.go.jp/chik...
After 22 hours, the crew of the Maersk Interceptor have assembled and lowered 551 feet of pipes into the water. Through them, a hydraulic hammer will operate to drive these pipes 131 feet below the seafloor. From: MIGHTY SHIPS: Maersk Interceptor http://bit.ly/2biRHN1

They are virtual cities stuck in the middle of some of the most dangerous seas on earth. Life on them is hard and fraught with danger from calamitous fires a. Animation of deepwater drilling. Drilling wells is one of the most important activities in the process of finding hydrocarbon reservoirs and producing oil and gas from these reservoirs to me. Auxillary Drilling Supervisor, Louise takes us through her daily life onboard the Deepsea Metro I drill ship. Louise overseas the team that make up the drill.

Drilling wells is one of the most important activities in the process of finding hydrocarbon reservoirs and producing oil and gas from these reservoirs to meet our energy needs. This video by Shell explains the basics of how offshore deep water wells are drilled, including explanations and visualization of important components, processes and techniques that drilling rigs use today to safely drill wells. This is the official YouTube channel of Shell, a worldwide leader in the oil and gas industry. Our aim is to meet the energy needs of society in ways that are economically, socially and environmentally viable, now and in the future. We believe that oil and gas will remain a vital part of the global energy mix for many decades to come. Our role is to ensure that we extract and deliver thes...
In 1961, scientists drilled a hole into the ocean floor off California’s coast. They hoped to break through the Earth’s crust and reach the mantle beneath, but they failed. Now, other scientists are trying again to make history. A two-month expedition in the Indian Ocean has drilled farther than ever before, and returns to land Saturday with samples that could help unlock some of Earth’s deepest secrets. Jeffrey Kluger, Time magazine's editor-at-large, joins “CBS This Morning: Sturday” to discuss the team’s efforts.
Perdido is the deepest floating oil platform in the world at a water depth of about 2450 meters (8000 feet) operated by the Shell Oil Company in the Gulf of Mexico. The Perdido is located in the Perdido fold belt which is a rich discovery of crude oil and natural gas that lies in water that is nearly 8000 feet deep. The platform's peak production will be 100,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day. At 267 meters, the Perdido is nearly as tall as the Eiffel Tower.

The footage of the Borgholm Dolphin installation was captured at the weekend by James Eaton, an offshore worker on the nearby Lomond Platform, around 145 miles east of Aberdeen.

This creature was found near an oil well. I have no idea what it is.
Diving work in connection with Dan Bravo rationalisation is one example of the extensive underwater activity requrired in a mature field operation. Divers are working up to 40 metres below sea level. Maersk Oil carries out diving inspection on platform jackets bi-anually. 81 days are expected to be spent on diving in 2014.
Shingu Port, Japan— Sept. 21, 2007—Today, the Nankai Trough Seismogenic Zone Experiment (NanTroSEIZE) gets underway, with the Japanese drilling vessel Chikyu departing from Shingu Port with scientists aboard, all ready to log, drill, sample, and install monitoring instrumentation in one of the most active earthquake zones on Earth. The vessel's launch starts the first of a series of scientific drilling expeditions that will retrieve geological samples and provide scientific data from the Nankai Trough fault zone for the first time. Situated off Japan's southwest coast, the Nankai Trough has reliably generated large-scale earthquakes and tsunamis for millions of years, including historic earthquakes in 1944 and 1946, which measured 8.1 and 8.3, respectively, on the Richter scale.
Deep Sea Drilling Vessel (D/V) CHIKYU is the first riser equipped scientific drilling vessel built for science at the planning stage. It is capable of drilling up to 7,000m deep sea floor and aim to the mantle and seismogenic zone. CHIKYU explores the Earth as the main plat form of the Integrated Ocean Drilling Program (IODP). The earth has experienced a number of great environmental changes. The evidence remains under the deep seafloor. The deep sea drilling research open the new frontier of earth and life science for future of mankind by revealing the system of major earthquakes, global changes, origin of life.
The Arctic is warming twice as fast as the rest of the world and as the ice melts, previously inaccessible oil and gas resources become less difficult to exploit. But that doesn’t mean we should start drilling. And there’s more than one reason why. The Obama Administration is expected to release its final decision on a five-year leasing program for Arctic drilling in November. The time to act is now.
This film documents Project Mohole, an ambitious attempt to drill through the Earth's crust into the Mohorovičić discontinuity, and to provide an Earth science complement to the high-profile Space Race. The project was initially led by the American Miscellaneous Society with funding from the National Science Foundation. The goal was to use technology developed for the petroleum industry to penetrate deeper into the Earth's crust than ever before. A converted U.S. Navy ship, CUSK ONE, was used in the program. Mohole inadvertently contributed to another project led by corporate sponsor Global Marine, the Jennifer Project in which the Glomar Explorer (a larger platform than Cusk) was used in an attempt to retrieve a Soviet submarine. Phase One was executed in spring 1961. Five holes were dr...
