|Abstract||This paper evaluates efforts to improve deepwater drilling technology. It reveals that technology now exists for drilling in 6,500 ft of water, though only a half-dozen vessels are capable of such efforts. On the drawing board are several unique rig designs with greater deck capacity and enhanced motion characteristics that could make drilling in 6,500 to 8,000 ft a realistic endeavor. Standard steel-jacket platforms are not as economical as alternative designs in deeper waters. Exxon is installing a guyed tower in 1,000 ft of water in the Gulf of Mexico. Other fixed structures include the tripod tower platform (TTP), the Mandrill 400, the deep G3, and the Base and Independent Deck(BID) platform. The paper concludes that although the industry is in a state of uncertainty, many of these new offshore concepts will be implemented in the coming decade.|

National Digital Library of India (NDLI) is a virtual repository of learning resources which is not just a repository with search/browse facilities but provides a host of services for the learner community. It is sponsored and mentored by Ministry of Education, Government of India, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT). Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI provides user group-specific services such as Examination Preparatory for School and College students and job aspirants. Services for Researchers and general learners are also provided. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for 10 most widely used Indian languages. It is built to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is designed to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is developed, operated and maintained from Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Education, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
