Abstract

Four categories of drilling and sampling application are discussed: (1) engineering-geological investigations to assess the foundation conditions for large offshore structures, (2) mineral exploration to determine the economic value of potential mining deposits, (3) geological mapping of the ocean floor and (4) petroleum exploration. Within these four major areas, variables are considered that influence the rationale for selection of a particular rig. Selection criteria include sampling, coring and dynamic testing capability, limiting target drilling depths, operating-basis environmental conditions, necessary support vessels and personnel.
