The demand for oil increases with the development of oil production in deeper water area. Due to its economic, flexibility and ability to adapt with variety of water depth, FPS4 has been recently used as an attractive alternative of offshore oil production. This study present concern in the operations of FPSO systems by investigating the effects of different parameters toward the FPSO. The selection of structural configuration and other parameters is very important as it become the basis for design an efficient structure. Data has been obtained from Ruby FPSQ and has been adjusted to perform dynamic analysis such as wave forces, wave spectrum and time series with subject to three degree of motions namely surge, heave and pitch. Parametric studies by varying the water depth and the wave spectra have been made for each motion. From the study, it is observed that there is significantly small changes in wave frequency motion as water depth increase from shallow water to deepwater and ultra deepwater. As for the changes in wave spectra, the wave frequency motion for PM spectrum is doubled the wave frequency motion for Jonswap spectrum. This finding may help the ocean engineers determine the condition of the sea at Ruby field when designing any offshore structure in the future.
