The energy crisis has spurred demands for rapid development of continental United States offshore petroleum assets. These assets could account for over 20 percent of U.S. energy requirements by 1985. Offshore assets can be destroyed, as well as major industrial development and expansion programs halted, with simple and inexpensive sabotage techniques. Adequate detection, defense, and related damage control systems against such illegal assaults are not presently in use on offshore assets. A proposed solution is presented.
