Offshore (1979) is a novel by Penelope Fitzgerald. It won the Booker Prize for that year. It recalls her time spent on boats on the Thames in Battersea. The novel explores the liminality of people who do not belong to the land or the sea, but are somewhere in between. The epigraph, "che mena il vento, e che batte la pioggia, e che s'incontran con si aspre lingue" ("whom the wind drives, or whom the rain beats, or those who clash with such bitter tongues") comes from Canto XI of Dante's Inferno.
"Offshore", when used relative to hydrocarbons, refers to an oil, natural gas or condensate field that is under the sea, or to activities or operations carried out in relation to such a field. There are various types of platform used in the development of offshore oil and gas fields, and subsea facilities.

Pacific is primarily a complete course with techniques, tips and tools applicable to learning how to become a leader. The contribution of the secrets on leadership of over 200 leading executives and CEOs (whom we interviewed) as well as Gamelearn's 15 years of experience in corporate training guarantee Pacific's theoretical approach, which is based on six key notions:
Providing meaning to teamwork
Building a team to face synergies
The correct delegation of tasks
Feedback and coaching to boost teams
Gamelearn's developers decided to set the story in an environment of survival and cooperation: a group of people that are lost on an island in the Pacific. A favorable setting to explain the benefits of teamwork and staying motivated.
