In the past 10 years developments in technology and the opening up of new frontiers, combined with a demand to move into greater water depths have resulted in considerable increase in the use of floating facilities for offshore oil production. The Terra Nova Development has and will establish a number of project "firsts" including the first FPSO to...

... Offshore structures of various different designs have been operating successfully in ice infested waters for some time (e.g., IMVPA, 2008;Keinonen and Truskov, 2001;Lever et al., 2001). However, with the changing climate of the Arctic and surrounding seas, and specifically the observed and predicted reduction in sea ice, a new type of ice floe hazard is now emerging; one of small floe sizes in relation to wavelength (McGovern and Bai, 2014). ...
... The advantages have been reported on a variety of offshore structures [299,300]. The design and development of these structures have been identified in a variety of literature on CGBS [300][301][302][303][304][305][306][307][308][309][310][311][312], FPSOs [313][314][315][316][317][318][319][320][321][322][323][324][325][326][327][328][329], compliant platforms [330][331][332][333][334][335][336][337][338][339][340][341][342][343][344], fixed jacket platforms and SPARS [370][371][372][373][374][375][376][377][378][379][380][381][382][383][384][385][386][387][388][389]. Another well-known application of offshore platforms is for generating energy via offshore wind farms [390][391][392][393][394][395][396][397][398][399][400]. ...
