Title (EN) FLOATING PLATFORM FOR OFFSHORE DRILLING OR PRODUCTION OF HYDROCARBONS
(FR) PLATE-FORME FLOTTANTE POUR FORAGE EN MER OU POUR LA PRODUCTION D'HYDROCARBURES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A floating platform for offshore drilling or production of hydrocarbons comprises a topsides with drilling and/or production equipment (8), and a substructure comprising a lower pontoon (3) and columns (4) connecting the pontoon (3) to the topsides (1). During its operation the platform is exposed to wave forces (9) which cause heave motion (v) and roll and pitch motion (p) of the platform. The substructure has a draught (11) which is at least 40 metres, preferably at least 50 metres and most preferred at least 60 metres, and the ratio between the distance (16) between the columns' centre axes (25), measured along a side of the substructure, and the lower substructure's draught (11) is between 1.0 and 1.5, preferably between 1.2 and 1.4 and most preferred between 1.3 and 1.35.
(FR)Cette plate-forme flottante pour forage en mer ou pour la production d'hydrocarbures, comporte des superstructures pourvues d'un équipement de forage et/ou de production (8) ainsi qu'une infrastructure comprenant un ponton inférieur (3) et des colonnes (4) reliant ce ponton (3) aux superstructures (1). En cours d'utilisation, la plate-forme est soumise à l'action des vagues (9) qui provoquent des mouvements de soulèvement (v), de roulis et de tangage (p). Le tirant d'eau (11) de l'infrastructure est d'au moins 40 mètres, de préférence d'au moins 50 mètres et, mieux encore, d'au moins 60 mètres. Le rapport entre la distance (16) existant entre les axes centraux (25) des colonnes, mesurée le long d'un côté de l'infrastructure, et le tirant d'eau (11) de cette infrastructure est compris entre 1,0 et 1,5, de préférence, entre 1,2 et 1,4 et, mieux encore, entre 1,3 et 1,35.
