Ship-shaped Offshore Installations: Design, Building, and by Jeom Kee Paik

By Jeom Kee Paik

Ship-shaped offshore devices are many of the less expensive structures for the advance of offshore oil and gasoline, and are usually hottest in marginal fields. those platforms are specially appealing to boost oil and fuel fields in deep and ultra-deep water components and distant destinations clear of current pipeline infrastructures. lately, the ship-shaped offshore devices were utilized to close shore oil and fuel terminals. This 2007 textual content is a perfect reference at the applied sciences for layout, construction and operation of ship-shaped offshore devices, inside inevitable house requisites. The e-book features a diversity of subject matters, from the preliminary contracting technique to decommissioning and the elimination of the devices involved. assurance comprises either basic concept and rules of the person applied sciences. This booklet should be beneficial to scholars who might be impending the topic for the 1st time in addition to designers engaged on the engineering for ship-shaped offshore installations.

Sample text

An FPSO project involves many elements, such as engineering of the hull, topsides, mooring system, integration of the topsides onto the hull, towing to site, installation on site, and commissioning. Compared to tankers, which are built in shipyards, there are several major interfaces to be managed, such as between the topsides facilities design and the hull design and between the multiple contractors involved. Usually, for financial and risk-spreading reasons, some sort of a consortium is formed involving owners, joint venturers, and operators; all have a say and can affect one or more of the work elements required in an FPSO contract.

Useful guidelines and strategies for establishing good contracting plans are described by Parker (1999) and Adhia et al. (2004a). 3 Engineering and Design Past FPSO projects indicate that many problems associated with costs and schedules can be traced to inadequate project definition and requirements, which ultimately necessitated related changes during the project execution phase (Adhia et al. 2004a). Therefore, front-end engineering and design (FEED), involving substantial engineering capabilities and taking account of lessons learned from FPSO projects, is necessary for any new project; and this needs to be carried out to the necessary extent before the development of specifications, the invitation to tender package, and, in general, the bidding phase.
