Plain Stupid: The Only Thing Dumber Than Wind Power Is Offshore Wind Power

When I was still in project development there were a couple of easy things to remember. Pipes are good for short distances, ships are good for long distances. When a resource costs more to extract, condition, and transport to market than the market is willing to pay for it, you have a stranded resource. And yes, if you have the option to do it onshore, don’t go offshore as literally, everything is harder in the wide open seas. Corrosion alone is a massive pain in the neck for any offshore operator and you make yourself weather dependent. Sometimes there is no other way but if there is – don’t.
