Offshore oil and gas rigs leak more greenhouse gas than expected. A survey of offshore installations extracting oil and natural gas in the North Sea revealed far more leakage of methane, a powerful greenhouse gas, than currently estimated by the British government, according to a research team led by scientists from Princeton University.

By extracting the oil and gas that naturally seeps from the ocean floor, offshore drilling operations can actually reduce the amount of petroleum and hydrocarbons released into the marine environment. Another environmental benefit of offshore drilling are the artificial reefs that are created. Oil rig platforms act as fantastic artificial reefs.
