Onshore drilling is land drilling: wells typically take
days to drill -- maybe 30 days, maybe 45 days, depending on
desired depth, and rigs are contracted in days, as opposed
to months and years for offshore drilling.
Offshore drilling can be deepwater (technically defined as
water deeper than 650 feet, or 200 meters) or shallow water
(water as shallow as 20 feet or as deep as 200 feet).
Drilling offshore in deepwater takes the most
technologically advanced rigs and experienced workers.
Dayrates for offshore rigs start in the midteens and can
run over $200,000 per day, depending on the rig and the
location of the drilling project.
Offshore refers to a foreign locale that is far away in
distance and, more importantly, far apart in time from your
Nearshore also refers to a foreign locale but one thatís
much closer to you.
Onshore is a locale in the same country as yours.
On the IT side, there are Offshore, Onshore and Onsite.
- Wipro's Indian offices can be termed as Offshore sites
- Wipro's USA offices can be termed as Onshore
- If Wipro's customer is in USA, then if Wipro's engineers
work in customer office, then its Onsite
1)Three geniuses stand in a file (one behind the other).
Each can see only to the front, so the rear person can see
the middle and the front, the middle person can see the
front, and the genius in the front cannot see anyone. You
have five hats. Two are white, and three are red. You
blindfold the three geniuses, who are utterly truthful, and
put a hat--at random-on the head of each. Then you hide the
other two hats and remove the blindfolds. You then ask each
genius to name the color of his hat (which he cannot see).
The rear on says "I don't know." The middle on says, " I
don't know." Then the front onw says, "I know." WHAT COLOR
IS THE FRONT GENIUS' HAT?
2) one reasoning puzzle.
3) A monkey falls into a 30 ft well. Every day it climbs 3
ft up and falls 2 feet up. How many days will it take for it
to jump out of the well.
