When it comes to harvesting oil and natural gas for our industry, there are really only two options: Onshore and offshore drilling. What are the differences between these two types of drilling?

Onshore Drilling
Drilling 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.

Offshore Drilling
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.

The major difference between onshore drilling and offshore drilling is that onshore drilling is seeking to release resources from beneath the earth’s surface, while offshore drilling is seeking to release resources from beneath the ocean’s seabed.

We are API approved manufacturer of rotary hoses, vibrator hoses, choke & kill hoses and BOP hoses. They can be used both on Onshore Drilling and Offshore Drilling. As an API authorized oilfield hoses factory, we have API certificates of API 7K, API 16C, API 16D and API Q1. If there is any requirement of the oilfield hoses, please do not hesitate to contact us.
