Deep water exploration has been one of major focus in oil and gas industries and companies. This paper discuss about the effect of water depth on the response of spar platform. It also discuss about effect of drag and mass coefficient for tubular member. The idea of this project is to find the motion and forces to the Spar platform with regards or influence of the water depth at certain locations. The case study is made with Genesis spar platforms in difference water depth. The equation that is used in finding the motions and forces is 'Linear Airy Wave Theory', 'Pierson-Moskowitz Spectrum' and 'Motion Response Spectrum'. The project also conducts a literature survey about the Spar Technology, Existing Spar, and Dynamic Analysis & Model Studies. The project will come up with tabulated result and some graphs about the effect of water depth on the spar responses. Some recommendation shall be include for further study and research.
