Explorer September 2014

This month the EXPLORER offers a new editorial theme, “Offshore Developments,” with several stories dealing with offshore activities around the world – and some that specifically reference the upcoming Offshore Technology Conference in Houston. The cover photo represents that theme – the Britannia Satellites in the North Sea, about 130 miles northeast of Aberdeen,Scotland. Photo courtesy ConocoPhillips.
