Does anyone know anything about oil drilling platforms? In the Gulf of Mexico for instance? My grandson stumped me with a question. I tried to research it on the net but couldn't find an answer.
Question: Do the drilling platforms float around like enormous barges or something? Are they anchored to the ocean floor to stabilize and hold them in place? The ocean is very deep in places, I doubt that any of them are attached to legs like a table top.
I know it's a dumb question.
