Dillard S. Hammett

After graduating from The University of Oklahoma as a Civil Engineer in 1954, Dillard Hammett joined Shell. For the next 45 years, Hammett led projects that developed dynamic stationing and floating production technology involving ultra deepwater activities. These projects involved working safely and efficiently under harsh sea conditions, with unstable seabeds and in deepwater. Hammett pioneered techniques to drill and produce in ice and iceberg-covered oceans. Among his many innovations were structures to withstand the Cook Inlet ice, current and tides. He also invented numerous improvements to drillships and semisubmersibles, floating production platforms and ocean floor scientific coring and sampling using dynamic station-keeping.
