LR#s Offshore Register Shows Increase Of Over 100 Units In Mobile Drilling Rigs
The continued increase in the number of offshore units around the world is again reflected in the latest (1982/83) edition of the Register of Offshore Units, Submersibles and Diving Systems, published recently by Lloyd's Register of Shipping.
The number of mobile drilling rigs listed has grown by more than a hundred to 744, compared with 638 a year ago, while the number of submersibles has increased from 396 to 425. The number of work units, 488, represents an increase of 11 units from the previous year. In addition, the publication includes details of 367 diving systems classed or certified by LR.
Each entry includes comprehensive details of the equipment.
In the case of mobile drilling rigs, the information covers full details of drilling equipment, propulsion, cranes, electrical and position fixing equipment, as well as owners, operators, and drilling locations.
Similar details are given for submersibles, diving systems, and work units. In addition, the 570-page publication contains a section giving the addresses, telex, and telephone numbers of the owners of the equipment.
Like the Register of Ships, LR's Register of Offshore Units, Submersibles and Diving Systems is recognized as one of the principal reference works in its field, invaluable to all sectors of the industry. It is issued free of charge to all subscribers to the Register of Ships, and is also available for sale separately.
In the U.K., further information and copies of the Register can be obtained from: Manager, Lloyd's Register Printing House, Manor Roval, Crawley, West Sussex, RH10 2QN; Telephone Crawley (0293) 26404. Elsewhere, it is available through the local offices of Lloyd's Register of Shipping.
