T.D. Lindberg VP-Sales inch by 48-inch wall poster, the painting shows a Marathon Class 116-C cantilever mobile self-ele- vating jackup drilling rig just as it would appear at work drilling in an ocean environment.

This first Marathon LeTour- neau-developed rig was equipped with 141 feet of leg, and was ca- pable of drilling in 80 feet of water. In contrast, the Marathon

Class 116-C cantilever self-elevat- ing jackup rig depicted in the poster is equipped with 410 feet of leg, and is capable of drilling in 300 feet of water. It features vastly improved technology.

The poster details various func- tioning parts of a working jackup drilling rig, not otherwise seen by a viewer. It includes close-ups of the main deck, the elevating unit structure and its complex electric motors and reduction gears, the spud well, production platform, cantilever function, control cen- ters, crew quarters, and many other diverse functions.

The colorful and unique poster is available at no charge by writ- ing on company or other official letterhead to Roland B. Gray, De- partment MR, Marathon LeTour- neau Offshore Company, Post Of- fice Box 61589, Houston, Texas 77208.

Wall Poster Of Drill Rig

In an unusual gesture by a ma- jor industrial manufacturer, Mar- athon LeTourneau Offshore Com- pany of Houston, Texas, commis- sioned nationally acclaimed artist

David Kimble to paint an "insid- er's view" of one of the famed

Marathon LeTourneau offshore mobile, self-elevating jackup drill- ing rigs.

Termed "The Anatomy of a

Rig," the painting is a full color "on-site" ocean scene showing the rig with cutaway sections to de- pict the intricate workings of the complex structure. It was com- missioned in order to better reveal the details of an operating off- shore jackup drilling rig.

So what's the difference? Timothy Drew Lindberg

The pipe above obviously needs replacement, soonest possible, while the Kubota cargo oil pipe, shown below it, still has several years of good service life left. When replacing the pipe in your vessels, consider that Kubota's give more than two times longer service than most others. Fifteen years of use without replacement is ample proof of their superiority. Why?

Kubota materials and methods cannot be found anywhere else in the world. The material is KCP-3L, a chrome manganese steel especially developed by this company. It is made by Kubota's exclusive centrifugal casting techniques, widely acknowledged to be of the highest technological level. The highest degree of weldability gives it the greatest facility of use. That is why fully 95",, of all Japanese tankers use Kubota cargo oil pipe. And why shipbuilders and repair docks around the world keep it on hand for installation and replacement. Write today for full information on how to raise the efficiency of your tanker operations.
