Energy Companies Look to Deeper Offshore Drilling

UPI reports that "energy companies are drilling in waters deeper than ever before, though the industry still could tap even deeper, a Danish drilling engineer said."  

"Frederik Smidth, chief technology officer for Danish energy company Maerks Drilling, told Fuel Fix -- the energy arm of the Houston Chronicle -- that energy companies were looking to the future of offshore energy development."  

"'We're drilling wells that we couldn't have drilled 20 years ago,' he said in [published statements]. 'But there's a lot more we haven't seen yet.'"
