The latest issue of the Outer Continental Shelf National Center of Expertise’s Drill Down is now available.
Drill Down is the OCS NCOE’s outreach and knowledge management tool for sharing in-house expertise with a broader audience, to assist in educating those interested in the OCS world of work, and to help generate discussion amongst OCS stakeholders. The goal is to “drill down” the answers to questions regarding the OCS industry.
In this Drill Down, OCS NCOE discusses the basics of a Dynamic Positioning system. As the offshore oil and gas industry pushed exploration into deeper water, it found that conventional anchoring became less practical and cost effective. The advent of Dynamic Positioning brought the industry an effective, yet complex solution to remaining stationary while conducting high consequence operations.
To learn more about how to get the most out of Drill Down, please read the inaugural issue.
