This paper presents some recent technological developments in deep mixing for the offshore sector. Deep mixing methods comprise in-situ soil treatment technologies where binding materials are added and blended with the original soils in order to improve their mechanical properties. The MIxed Drilled Offshore Steel (MIDOS) pile is introduced in this paper, which takes advantage of such deep mixing technologies. The comparison between the API approach and CPT-based methods for the prediction of the pile capacity are provided to validate the capability of the MIDOS pile as a foundational element for oil&gas structures in different geological conditions. The theoretical calculations are intended for initial estimation of pile sizing only and are not intended as a detailed design method.
