Abstract:

An investigation has been made of the research, development, and data gathering that would provide some of the tools, both information and hardware, that could be used to increase safety and decrease pollution hazards associated with offshore oil and gas exploration and production. Methods have been identified for reducing the dangers to which both workers and structures are exposed during drilling, subsurface production, and transportation operations. These dangers include fire and explosion, asphyxiation, blowout, pollution, and unsafe rig conditions.
