Drill Ship Injury Lawyer
Drill ships are large maritime vessels designed with their own onboard drilling rigs. These ships are normally used to explore for new oil or gas deposits in deep ocean waters. They can also be used for scientific research and as floating platforms for maintenance or other work on nearby structures. While most drill ships are purpose built, others are simply modified tankers fitted with a drilling rig as well as a dynamic positioning system to keep the vessel stationary while in operation.
When preparing to drill, the ship lowers a marine riser, fitted with a blowout preventer, down to the wellhead on the seafloor. Drill ships are prized for their ability to drill in deep water (up to 8,000 feet) and quickly move from well site to well site.
