Onshore Drilling and Offshore Drilling Hose
Onshore rigs are massive structures housing equipment used to drill oil wells or natural gas extraction wells. Drilling rigs can be mobile equipment mounted on trucks, tracks or trailers, or more permanent land based structures.
One drilling rig can go to depths of up to 130,000 feet. And another one called conventional rig, which is stationary with an ability of up to 30,000 feet.
Offshore Drilling Hose
Offshore drilling takes place on oil platforms. During offshore drilling, an oil company applies drilling equipment deep into the earth. Offshore oil wells can last 10-20 years. It takes time for oil companies to set up equipment on offshore oil drilling sites.
Offshore sites feature derricks, crew quarters, and production facilities. After the setup is complete, it takes a while before an oil drill reaches the oil well; it’s quite a great distance from the surface to the deposits.
Are There Any Similarities?
The main similarity between the two is that both types of drilling are compatible with exploratory and production projects. Also, it takes time before any of the two drilling methods can produce results because of the amount of preparation they each carry.
The equipment used in both operations is almost similar as well, apart from the drilling platform in onshore drilling is somewhat different.
Communities also benefit a lot from the establishment of either drilling in their area.
