The paper details the design evaluation of Brown & Root's Ltd BARBOX 80, a square hull FPSO designed for a service life of 20 years in any central North Sea field. The evaluation addressed fundamental aspects of general arrangement, primary hull structure, mooring system, stability and production layout and ensured that the design is based on satisfactory standards. A hazard identification and a fire risk analysis identified design concerns and hazards which could potentially cause loss of life, environmental pollution and production interruption and raised corrective actions.
