This paper presents a method for installing structural casing from floating drilling vessels in a manner such that the casing is proof loaded and will not settle when other casing is landed later. The method borrows from geotechnical principles and pile installation observations. In addition to structural casing installation, this method can be used to install lightly loaded piles (e.g., anchor piles) in clay soils.
