This report provides the analysis of square tension leg platfonn (TLP) subjected to regular wave. Recent depletion of near shore oil resources is quite a big issue and therefore, this project studies on other alternatives to extract oil in deep water for water depth greater than 300m. The assumption made for this project is that the tension leg platfonn is subjected to a regular wave. Dynamic analysis conducted in the 'Frequency Domain Analysis'. The project objectives are to detennine the forces reacted on square tension leg platfonn, to see the responses of square tension leg platfonn in the direction of surge, heave and pitch, to calculate the tension forces produced on each tether and to prove that tension leg platfonn is worth in deepwater exploration. Wave kinematics value is found by using Airy Wave theory while the acted forces by using Morrison equation. Overall, the responses of the TLP have been found within allowable limits, thereby confinning the suitability of TLP for deepwater application.
