The recent moment variation of this authoritative booklet has retained the entire virtues of the best-selling unique, explaining the original demanding situations of oil and fuel exploration and construction within the world's deepwater provinces. New chapters on geology and geophysics, rigs, and repair cars are integrated, and the engineering and medical schemes utilized in deepwater are lined in larger element. Case experiences in numerous chapters provide functional examples, whereas the ultimate bankruptcy provides the most recent expertise hired in a ''third wave'' of evolution

The idea was simple. On a barge or other floatable, install tall cylinders (or caissons) around the perimeter. Float the barge to a site and drop the caissons to the bottom like legs. Then jack the platform up the remaining length of the caissons as high above water as required. In 1950, Magnolia Petroleum Company installed the first Delong-design platform in the Gulf of Mexico. It stood on six caissons in 30 feet of water. Ironically, they used it as a permanent production platform, but McDermott Company followed with a mobile rig the next year, the DeLong-McDermott No.
