INFLUENCE OF INTERNAL WAVES ON DEEP-WATER DRILLING

Internal waves were observed during drilling by the drillship Discoverer 534 in the Andaman Sea, offshore Thailand, in water depths ranging from 1,900 ft to more than 3,400 ft. An engineering analysis was conducted on measured internal wave data and simultaneous measured drillship response. Knowledge of internal waves will be required for designing production facilities in deep water.
