Currently, there are about more than 80% of offshore platform around Malaysia's block field aged 30-40years which beyond the original design life of 25 years. With the several numbers of the platform services beyond the original design life, structural assessments need to conduct the gauge platform performance throughout for the extended years. There was 2 common method widely used, simplified ultimate strength analysis and static pushover analysis. Simplified ultimate strength defined as when any of member, joint, pile steel strength and pile soil bearing capacity reaches its ultimate capacity. That result the overview of the platform ultimate strength. Static pushover analysis generally concentrates on RSR (Reserve Strength Ratio) and REF (Reserve Resistance Factor) for the ultimate strength. The report summarizes two parts of analysis, first the study of ultimate strength of different leg jacket platform and the second part is the bracing configuration study. The analyses were a non-linear analysis where the load will distribute to an alternative of the steel framework until the structure collapse under allocated condition. It is found that a platform with more legs has higher ultimate strength compared to less number of legs. Hence a bigger jacket platform with eight legs has much stiffen than smaller platform and mostly installed at rough area. Another part of analysis of bracing configuration study where X-bracing contributes highest rigidity to the whole platform by retaining the platform until the highest load reported compare to another configuration.
