"Among marine machines used for the discovery and recovery of oil from the ocean floor the Seawitch was exceptional.  Its steel supports were so massive that it had a buoyancy that removed the working platform out of reach of the highest waves; it was also cheaper to run than other more standard rigs; and it was mobile, able to up anchor and move to more productive areas with comparative ease.  Put simply in financial terms, the Seawitch was capable of making more money, more quickly, than any other rig in the world."
