As the deepwater exploration has become the most popular topic discussed in oil and gas industries nowadays, many floating structures have been proposed for cost effective solution. This project is to conduct a detailed literature survey about Spar Technology, Classic Spars, Existing Spars, Dynamic Analysis and Model Studies. But the more specific objectives for this project are to conduct a dynamic analysis study about how classic spars will responses to random waves. A detailed literature review was done to achieve the best understanding about the topic. From the literature reviewed, it gives a vast understanding and knowledge about the new technologies in oil and gas industries. Petronas Carigali Sdn Bhd (PCSB) have provided convenience information such as the environmental parameter, normal load acting on a spar platform and dimension for Kikeh Spars, this has made the research easier. Simple dynamic rigid body analyses in time domain were done in order to see how the classic spars acting with due to the environmental data provided. Through this project it proved that spar is a very stable structures which can be installed in unlimited water depth and stable with the loading applied onto it. The project has given another alternative to the oil exploration in Malaysia and proved that Malaysia oil and gas exploration can be widening to the next stage which is deepwater exploration.
