Important offshore activities
So, it is about activities far away from the coast which are most of the time focused on exploration and mining extraction, but also more and more on wind and tidal energy. The activities can be divided in a drilling with oil- and gas platforms and maritime. Examples of maritime are diving support for vessels, platforms for supply vessels, pipeline vessels and crane vessels for subsea activities. The offshore activities started in shallow waters after World War II. Nowadays, under pressure of the decreasing available amount of oil and gas nearby the coast, there is a shift to deep water with extreme weather conditions. With offshore technique is meant ‘designing, building and placing art works that support industrial processes or public facilities and the exploration and mining of oil, gas, wind and tidal energy at sea. Both processing and storage take place at sea. Focusing on IT, how well does it facilitate project logistics? What about the yard and other storage and production locations?
