Biofuels produced using conventional technology and by and large use food crops (such as sugar, corn) as the source of biomass. The two most notable first generation biofuels are bioethanol and biodiesel. Other first generation biofuels include butanol, alcohol and biogas. Second generation biofuels make use of more advanced technology such as gasification and liquefaction processes to convert biomass into biofuel. Bio-fuels are a potentially more environmentally friendly substitute for fossil fuels and this is naturally where their strengths lie. The latest focus on so called third generation biofuels focuses on algae. Bioethanol is an alcohol-based fuel made through the fermentation of crops such as barley, wheat, corn or sugar cane. It is the most commonly used biofuel worldwide. Other commonly used derivatives include kerosene and propane. During the process of combustion, pollutants such as carbon dioxide and nitrous oxide are emitted and enter the atmosphere. These contaminants are called greenhouse gases

Refining is a process of converting crude oil into usable products. Crude oil is a mixture of hundreds of different types of hydrocarbons with carbon chains of different lengths. These can be separated through refining. The refining technics as follows: Physical separation through crude distillation, Conversion or upgrading of the basic distillation streams, Product treatment to purify and remove contaminants and pollutants, Product blending to create products that comply with market specifications. Cracking: Cracking processes break down heavier hydrocarbon molecules (high boiling point oils) into lighter products such as petrol and diesel, using heat (thermal) or catalysts (catalytic). Enhancing Oil Recovery With Bottom Water Drainage Completion. Field tests with DWS well completions have shown that DWS can control water coning and increase oil production rate.

A whole range of various structures is employed offshore, counting on size and water depth. within the previous couple of years, we have seen pure sea bottom installations with multiphase piping to shore, and no offshore topside structure at all. Shallow water complex, that is characterised by many independent platforms with completely different elements of the process and utilities linked with gangway bridges. Gravity base consists of huge concrete fixed structures placed on the bottom, generally with oil storage cells in a "skirt" that rests on the sea bottom. an FPSO(Floating Production, Storage and Offloading) is typically a tanker type hull or barge, usually converted from an existing petroleum tanker (VLCC or ULCC). due to the increasing sea depth for new fields, they dominate new offshore field development at over a hundred meters water depth. The tendons are made as hollow high tensile strength steel pipes that carry the spare buoyancy of the structure and ensure limited vertical motion. Semi-submersible platforms, SPAR, Subsea production system.

Oil and gas industries have unique workflow, working conditions & operational and environmental factors which demand online inventory management solution that effectively monitors the offshore operations to provide a safe workplace for site personnel & tracks the movement of assets for distribution across the supply chain. The remote monitoring of tote operations will ensure the safety of the site personnel by reducing the need to be in the offshore environment for extended periods to record and perform manual inventory. Online inventory monitoring/management system for tote inventory is built using RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) & WSN (Wireless Sensor Networks). RFID and WSN underwent vast development in their own areas and the integration of these two versatile technologies(RFID and WSN ) opened doors to industrial automation. 

Non-destructive Testing(NDT) methods are utilised in the oil & gas industry, to address problems concerning safety, equipment reliability, and environmental protection and government regulations. the conventional Techniques like Visual inspection is an inexpensive technique for detecting equipment flaws and defect. ultrasonic testing utilizes sound waves uses the piezo-electric effect of the ultrasonic transducer makes it possible to transmit and receive from within the equipment. radiographic strategies utilize X-ray or gamma rays (electromagnetic radiation) to look at the inner structure and integrity of the instrumentation. Thermographic review measures the distinction between the temperature of a pipeline and also the surrounding environment. Acoustic emissions detect the presence of rarefaction waves created by leaks in pipelines. The advanced NDT methods as follows: Novel radioisotope inspection, ultrasonic phased array (PA), Time of flight diffraction (ToFD), Magnetic Particle Inspection (MPI), Automatic ultrasonic testing (AUT)
