This publication discusses the planning, organisation and execution of the movement of semi-submersible vessels and barges. It describes operations from the barge viewpoint and contains data on towing vessel selection, conduct of towing operations and contingency planning. It also covers loading of semi-submersible cargo carriers, modular transport operations and other specialist work.

This book describes and illustrates the preparations required before moving barges and semi-submersibles. It discusses the planning stage, the role of the Warranty Surveyor, use of towing gear, contingency planning, sea fastenings and dry transport. It is a detailed and practical manual of standard operating practices, but may also be used as a planning tool by shore-based staff.

The Oilfield Seamanship series describes and explains standard techniques used in marine operations in offshore oilfields. The series concentrates on towing, anchor handling, barge mooring and moving, the operation of jack-up vessels afloat, the practice of stability control on semi-submersibles and ballast control techniques.
