Offshore drilling represents a working process, where a wellbore is drilled below the seabed. It is a typical way to explore for and subsequently extract oil or gas, which lie in rock formations beneath the seabed. Most commonly, offshore drilling is carried out on the continental shelf, though it’s also possible to drill in lakes, inshore waters and inland seas. There are many different types of facilities from which offshore drilling operations take place. These include bottom founded drilling rigs, combined drilling and production facilities such as bottom founded or floating platforms, deep-water mobile offshore drilling units such as semi-submersibles and drillships, etc.
These facilities have to be capable of operating in very deep waters and have to be constructed from very durable materials. Welding such constructions imposes huge challenges and requires uttermost excellence and precision. The welding constructions should be capable withstanding long-lasting strong deformations and constant climate challenges. Euro-DK Service Aps face these kinds of challenges every day, as we provide irreproachable flawless service to our clients. We are under constant development and keep in step with new rising demands of the offshore industry.
Offshore drilling presents environmental challenges, both from the produced hydrocarbons and the materials used during the drilling operation. Euro-DK Service Aps maintains the highest standards in respect of environment and nature. Our specialists work continuously on improving the welding techniques and to keep them in accordance with the modern demands for sustainable and ecological industry.
Offshore wind energy or wind power is one of the new modern sources of sustainable power for our civilization. Wind towers or whole wind farms are being constructed offshore in many countries. They are usually built on the continental shelf to harvest wind energy to generate electricity for the neighboring cities, as well as to be transported to other regions. Placed offshore, the wind turbines harvest stronger wind speeds compared to on land winds, and thus electricity supply is much higher. However, offshore wind farms are relatively expensive and call for sophisticated engineering solutions. Euro-DK Service Aps is involved in this process as our welders respond the growing demand for high qualified workforce in construction and reparations branches.
