Deepest Offshore Well in the World
The project of Deepwater Horizon in the Tiber Oil Field is considered as the deepest offshore well in the world. This has a vertical depth of 35,050 and its measured depth is 35,055 ft. This was officially awarded as the deepest oil well that was rig drilled in 2009.
The offshore well in Houston under the Deepwater Horizon was started to be built by South Korea in 2001. The specific company that created it is Hyundai Heavy Industries. This is located in the Tiber Oil Field, Keathley Canyon in block 102. This is created in order to be able to drill sub-sea wells for the goal of exploring oil in the sub-sea. In 2002, there was an upgrade that was made and they used e-drill in order to receive real-time drilling data. The technical personnel in Houston, Texas were able to transmit and troubleshoot information with the use of the rig.
Just like other operations that are being done when creating a well, the explorers who worked on this used advanced systems in order to be more accurate in the creation of the well. If you are looking for different information about the creation of the well, it is created for the R&B Falcon. Hyundai Heavy Industries, a company based in South Korea, made this. They started the construction in 1998 and the rig that was used was delivered in February 23, 2001. The delivery of the rig was just made when Transocean was able to purchase R&B Falcon.
When the Transocean acquired R&B Falcon, the registration was transferred to the Republic of Panama. The deepest oil and gas well that can be found in the US Gulf of Mexico is one of the greatest achievements of the Deepwater Horizon. This is something that is highly impressive according to Transocean. They were able to operate in 4,130 feet of water. This achievement is one of the achievements that were recorded in the history of Transocean. This company is one of the biggest ones in this industry. This is the reason why they are known and they were able to take part in the record of the oil drilling industry.
There are different disadvantages that were also known when it was created. The oil spill in the ocean is one thing that is highly bothering not only the government but also the people in the local area where it is located. This is something that even the greatest and the biggest rig companies are facing.
In the creation of the this structure, we can say that the amount of pollution that was transferred to the ocean is really something that can bother not only simple individuals but also the other organizations that are working hand-in-hand in order to get a positive result in their fight against different problems about pollution. Deepwater Horizon is also one of the companies that are trying their best in order to get the best tools that can be helpful with their fight against pollution. Their project in the creation of the deepest offshore well is one of the evidences for this.
