World consumption of primary energy in 1999 was estimated at 8533.6 million tons oil equivalent. Oil and natural gas accounted for about 65% of the world energy supply. Offshore areas produced 20-30 % of the oil and gas supply. Oil and natural gas are brought to the surface from underground reservoirs through wells that have been drilled and completed to produce these fluids safely and economically. Fundamental technology of drilling, completion and production of oil and gas is common to onshore and offshore areas. But environmental conditions of a field affect facilities and engineering works of the field. This chapter covers the basics of rotary drilling technology, recent progress of drilling engineering, characteristics of various offshore drilling rigs, and types of offshore production systems. The offshore production system adopted to develop a field extends its influence on the drilling and completion method of the field.
