Current practice for protection against potential failure sources is presented. The variability in loadings and in the strength of structural elements typical for offshore installations is discussed in terms of statistical properties. On this basis a reliability analysis based on modern probabilistic methods is carried out. A comparison of the reliability of different types of structures is made depending on their structural elements, materials and design codes.
