12/12/2018: New issue of ‘Drill Down’ now available

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.

The first Offshore Supply Vessel (OSV) Drill Down explored the advent and evolution of OSVs throughout the years. This issue explores Public Law 96-378, the first regulation to define “Offshore Supply Vessel” and “OSV Service.” It established the first regulatory path for vessels to enter service on the Outer Continental Shelf.
