4.4. Special Problems in the Deep-Water Drilling Process
From the perspective of deep-water drilling and oil production technology, besides the same problems we see for offshore drilling, there are several special problems that will be introduced below.
4.4.1. Deep-Water Drilling Design
There are some special problems that concern designing and planning deep-water drilling:
220.127.116.11. Choices of Drilling Platform
1. Deep-water drilling requirements for drilling platform
There are some higher-level demands for the drilling platform for deep-water drilling:
a. The platform design should meet the needs of the ultra-deep water.
b. The platform design should meet the requirements of harsh conditions.
c. The platform should have high mobility.
