Offshore platforms: design of two Southern North Sea jackets

W. G. Laver, N. D.P. Barltrop, C. I. Middleton

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The Paper describes the conceptual and detailed design of two recently installed steel jackets: one in 36. 0 m water depth (Leman F), and the other (Leman G) in 20. 0 m. Both platforms were required for further development of the Leman gas field in block 49/26 of the southern North Sea. Comparisons are made between the design of the two jackets which, although only 2. 7 km apart, required differing analytic and design requirements.
