Clarksons: Rescue Towing (Oilfield Seamanship Series – Volume 1)
A basic guide on the techniques, equipment and problems involved in rendering towage services by oilfield tugs to the semi-submersibles, jack-up and barges that they serve. It is a "first aid" manual not a text on the practice of salvage towing work which is a highly specialised field. It is of use to Tug masters, Barge masters, Tow Masters and marine operations staff involved in the movement of vessels within the offshore oilfield.
The Oilfield Seamanship series describes and explains the majority of standard techniques used in marine operations of the offshore oilfield. The series concentrates on Towing. Anchor Handling, Barge Mooring and Moving, the Operation of Jack-Up type vessels afloat, the practice of stability control on semi-submersibles and ballast control techniques on such vessels. The series of books are organised such that particular volumes are relevant to personnel on specific vessel types.
