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
After loging the bugs in bugzilla the developer fix the bugs
and change the stautus to fixed then the tester verfiy the
bug/functionality in application. The verification is going
to happen with present version or comming/new version?
When testing a grade calculation system, a tester determines
that all scores from 90 to 100 will yield a grade of A, but
scores below 90 will not. This analysis is known as:
A. Equivalence partitioning
B. Boundary value analysis
C. Decision table
D. Hybrid analysis
They showed me a Web page containing 3 text boxes labeled as
Name, D.O.B & Blood Group.It also have 3 Buttons as OK,
CANCEL,Reset. They told me that
1) when you click on OK it'll route you to the next page and
save the data in the database.
2) When you click on CANCEL it'll route you to the previous
3) When you click on Reset it'll clears all the entries made
Now they asked me to write Test cases to test the
functionality of that web page & asked me to write 1
critical test case after which they will give final go ahead
to test the rest of the application... I wasn't able to
write the critical test case. Plz answer.
