3.5. Requirements for Offshore Oil and Gas Production Facilities
Offshore oil and gas production facilities are different from land facilities, and the special requirements are discussed in the following
3.5.1. Requirements of Ocean Environment Loads
There are not only the loads of the wind, sea current, and waves at sea, but also the load of the sea ice in the ice zone and the seismic force in the seismic zone. Because these marine environmental loads are stochastic, the design and construction of offshore oil and gas production facilities shall meet the requirements of the intensity and stiffness under the random loads.
3.5.2. Requirements of Safe and Reliable Production
Because the space for offshore production facilities is small and the equipment ...
