DESIGN, FABRICATION, AND INSTALLATION OF THE NINIAN FIELD SOUTHERN PLATFORM

In an effort to eliminate problems previously experienced in fabrication and installation of large steel structures, emphasis for the Ninian field southern platform was placed on designing for those factors as well as for functional and long-term loadings. This paper describes design and innovative features of the structure. For example, the structure incorporates an unusual 30.2-ft (9.2 m) leg node design, which was verified with a finite element method of analysis described here.
