PF&C Summer Lecture Series - Session III : "Design and Construction of Tension Leg Platforms"

Session III of the Summer Series on “Floating Production Systems” presents an overview of TLP production systems, what drives their design, and a bit of TLP History.

The design of an offshore production platform requires consideration of many factors which influence the design, including payload and performance requirements, the met-ocean and geotechnical environments, construction methodology and available facilities, installation methodology and available equipment, and schedule requirements.  Steve will review the typical drivers in a TLP design, and discuss various design solutions.  Steve has collected photos of most of the existing TLP platforms, and uses these to demonstrate the evolution of TLP designs over the 26 installed platforms.

These sessions are perfect opportunities for either an introduction to Floating Production Systems for the engineer just starting in the industry, a refresher for the more seasoned individual, or just a great networking opportunity for those involved in this arena.  Each session is scheduled as a one (1) hour presentation followed by a thirty (30) minute Q&A period.
