A technique of determining the time when drilling operation must be halted on the basis of the predicted control of the movement of floating marine platforms is proposed. By means of the technique it becomes possible to adopt with a high degree of reliability a correct decision as to whether to continue or to halt drilling when the platform is functioning under conditions of random wind and wave disturbances.
