Since the seventies about 50 major floating concrete structures have been built for North Sea oil / gas development - concrete paves the way at sea.

Concrete offshore structures are mostly used in the petroleum industry as drilling, extraction or storage units for crude oil or natural gas. Those large structures house machinery and equipment needed to drill and/or extract oil and gas. But concrete structures are not only limited to applications within the oil and gas industry. Several conceptual studies have shown recently, that concrete support structures for offshore wind turbines are very competitive compared to common steel structures, especially for larger water depths.

Depending on the circumstances, platforms may be attached to the ocean floor, consist of an artificial island, or be floating. Generally, offshore concrete structures are classified into fixed and floating structures. Fixed structures are mostly built as concrete gravity based structures (CGS, also termed as caisson type), where the loads bear down directly on the uppermost layers as soil pressure. The caisson provides buoyancy during construction and towing and acts also as a foundation structure in the operation phase. Furthermore, the caisson could be used as storage volume for oil or other liquids.

Floating units will be held in position by anchored wires or chains in a spread mooring pattern. Because of the low stiffness in those systems, the natural frequency is low and the structure can move in all six degrees of freedom. Floating units serve as productions units, storage and offloading units (FSO) or for crude oil or as terminals for liquefied natural gas (LNG). A more recent development is concrete sub-sea structures.

Concrete offshore structures show an excellent performance. They are highly durable, constructed of almost maintenance-free material, suitable for harsh and/or arctic environment (like ice and seismic regions), can carry heavy topsides, often offer storage capacities, are suitable for soft grounds ad are very economical for water depths larger than 150m. Most gravity-type platforms need no additional fixing because of their large foundation dimensions and extremely high weight.

Since the 1970s, several fixed concrete platform designs have been developed. Most of the designs have in common a base caisson (normally for storage of oil) and shafts penetrating the water surface to carry the topside. In the shafts normally utility systems for offloading, drilling, draw down and ballast are put up.

Concrete offshore platforms of the gravity-base type are almost always constructed in their vertical attitude. This allows the inshore installation of deck girders and equipment and the later transport of the whole structure to the installation site.

The most common concrete designs are:

  • Condeep (with one, two, three or four columns)
  • ANDOC (with four columns)
  • Sea Tank (with two or four columns)
  • C G Doris
  • Arup Concrete Gravity Substructure (CGS)

Though concrete offshore structures are mostly used in the petroleum industry, it has now be come a real estate avenue as well. As a masonry contractor, I find a lot of scope and profit in undertaking floating home projects.

The basic design concept of concrete structures is based around three basic elements which include reinforcement, tensile strength, and corrosion resistance. Reinforcement is used to increase the structural strength of a concrete structure by adding metal or steel threads to the concrete. Tensile strength is increased by adding steel bars or by applying mechanical pressure to the concrete, while corrosion resistance is effected through materials such as steel reinforcing alloy, various types of concrete finishes, coatings, or stains. All of these factors need to be considered in the design and construction of any concrete structure and its longevity is dependent upon all of them.

That's fascinating! I had no idea that floating concrete structures played such a significant role in North Sea oil and gas development. It's impressive to think about the innovation and engineering behind these projects. Concrete definitely knows how to make waves, even in the open sea!
