Tensioned Buoyant Platforms Seminar 93
ISBN 1 874612 05 6
Over the last decade, it has become increasingly evident that Tensioned Buoyant Platforms (TBPs) offer a viable alternative for hydrocarbon production in moderate to deep water depths. Field operators and designers, however, have been placing increasing demands on the payload, water depths and range of production duties required from such platforms. This volume contains a collection of papers from Europe's leading experts in design and operation of TBPs. It covers recent developments for both hydrodynamics and structural response phenomena for these structures.
