Semi-Submersible Accident Lawyers
In the offshore industry, a semi-submersible is a special type of vessel. It was originally designed for tasks such as drilling, safety maintenance, and heavy lifting cranes. Many people also refer to this vessel as a semi-sub or a semi.
The oil and gas industry has recognized the need for exploratory drilling at greater depths. If oil is to be drilled at a depth greater than 120 meters, a floating vessel is needed. Semi-submersibles have pontoons that provide buoyancy. There are additional mechanics in place that allow the ship to remain stable during drilling operations.
