Title: Eighteenth annual offshore technology conference. Volume 1

Abstract

These sixty papers were given at a conference on offshore technology. Topics covered include friction effects of driving piles into sea beds of various compositions, wave forces on offshore platforms, stability, materials testing of various components such as plates, legs, wellheads, pipe joints, and protection of offshore platforms against ice and collision with icebergs.

  • The sixty-seven papers given here were given at a conference on offshore technology. Most papers concerned themselves with design, safety, and service life of offshore platforms, often discussing conditions in Arctic regions. Several dealt with innovations in pipeline design, and a few dealt with advances in seismic surveys for petroleum and minerals.
  • These proceeding compile papers on the offshore oil industry. Topics include reservoirs, rock mechanics, station-keeping in deep water, stability of mobile platforms, the effects of wave action and moored tankers, materials for tension-leg platforms, oil-pumping systems, exploratory drilling, and computer analysis of mooring systems.
  • This conference proceedings represents volume 1 of a 4 volume conference relating to offshore operations in both energy and non-energy fields of resource development. This volume discusses the use of geophysical surveying techniques and equipment for mapping the seafloor; the design and use of offshore platforms; safety engineering systems; interpretation techniques for offshore survey data; environmental impacts from offshore operations; geology of offshore areas; and regulations pertaining to the development of offshore resources.
  • This book contains the proceedings of a conference on offshore technology. Topics covered include: underwater wet welding of higher strength offshore steels; the proposed extended-reach drilling project; North Sea experience with aluminum drillpipe; and load transfer mechanism to offshore jackets during pile driving.
  • The papers presented at the Conference are compiled. Topics discussed include offshore operations of the petroleum industry, marine engineering, oceanography, geophysical survey, and environmental aspects of offshore operations. Abstracts were prepared for selected papers. (JSR)
