Using the Civ2Civ3 ruleset, in order to get the +1 Shield bonus in deep water from the Offshore Platform city improvement you must (M)ine the deep ocean tile to build an Oil Well. You then get the +1 Shield bonus.
The problem is, there is no visual indication that an Oil Well is present. If you assign a population to work a tile with an Oil Well present you will get the appropriate bonus, but you can't actually see which tiles have an Oil Well and which do not. You can figure it out by assigning population to various deep ocean tiles and seeing which ones have the Shield bonus and which don't, but this is a bit clunky.
