SNAME Philadelphia Section Discusses The Why And How Of Offshore Oil/Gas Drilling

The Philadelphia Section of The Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers held its February meeting at the Engineers' Club located in downtown Philadelphia. The meeting was attended by 65 members and guests.

Following a social hour and dinner, S.T.

Hudson, president, J.E. Brenneman Co., presented a paper entitled "Offshore Drilling." The paper discusses the why and how of offshore drilling for oil and gas. Further, it describes drilling operations and production.

The paper points out the need to continue exploration and development of potential oil fields on the outer continental shelf. With a few statistics, the author showed how the United States was the largest energy user in the world, and in recent years has been using up the country's petroleum reserves faster than new ones have been found.

Dr. Robert Jordan, Delaware State geologist, and Dr. Terry Petty, president, ODECO Engineers, Inc., presented informal discussions.

Following the presentation of the technical paper, M.A. Morris, Section chairman, presented the author with a certificate of appreciation.
