Various scenarios of failure in weight control are examined, and the consequences outlined. Remedial measures are discussed, and it is shown that as a project develops, the options reduce and the cost and potential time delay become increasingly significant. A generalised overall North Sea field development programme with associated overall budget is used as a reference against which indicative costs for remedial measures are derived at each stage in a project. Probabilities of weight problems occurring at each stage are presented and together with costs developed for various approaches designed to reduce these risks, the overall cost benefits of such activities are derived.
