Motion Compensation for Semi-submersible Rigs
Deep water drilling requires a rigid connection between the platform/drill-ship and the seabed. In order to keep on drilling in rough weather conditions, the movement of the derrick on the platform needs to be compensated. This compensation is done by wire-line or direct tensioning systems based on hydraulic systems, and in order to keep the hydraulic pressure stable in the system, high pressure air or gas is used.
