Oil and Gas are the major source of the world's energy in the 21st century and are naturally occurring petroleum products extracted from the earth’s crust used extensively in automobiles, machineries and utility products. The demand for oil and gas was earlier met through various onshore methods of oil and gas extraction. However, exhaustion of onshore oil reserves and increasing energy demand, have given rise to offshore techniques.

Offshore production began in 1940's offshore Louisiana and has increased tremendously over last six decades. Offshore production represents the process of oil and gas extraction that takes place mostly in the seabed and oceans. Oil and gas are extracted from the wells and transferred through ships and pipelines to refineries. Approximately 30 percent of world’s oil and gas production is extracted from offshore and is expected to increase significantly over the forecast period.
