Abstract

Increasing demand for Oil and Gas and decreasing onshore reserves has lead to Deep water exploration therefore it has accelerated the need to explore structures suitable for these depths, which operate more economically in deep water. A Spar platform is one such compliant offshore floating structure used for deep water applications for the drilling, production, processing, storage, and oftloading of ocean deposits. The Spar platform was modelled as a rigid body with six degrees-of freedom, connected to the sea floor by multi-component catenary mooring lines, which are attached to the Spar platform at the fairleads. The aim of this project was to conduct a simple dynamic rigid body analysis in time domain for a typical classic spar subjected to regular waves and then conduct a parametric analysis. The results obtained are within the permissible limits where the maximum Surge, Heave, & Pitch recorded were 1.2 m, 0.95 m, and -0.04 rad respectively for wave height of3.6 m and wave period of7 sec. v
