Design of steel constructions

Design of PG-1 jacket - element of oil deposit system managing on Baltic Sea

(for PETROBALTIC Oil and Gas Exploration - Production Co. Ltd.)

Various designs of jacket rig were thoroughly analysed in terms of stress and stability in various sea conditions. Analysis took into account loading by dead weight, buoyancy, sea waves, sea currents and wind. Entire task was carried out in cooperation with Mechanics and Strength of Materials Department of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering of Gdańsk University of Technology. Recommendations of API RP2A for permanent naval constructions were used. On the basis of analysis results main structural welded components were designed. After approval by PRS (Polish Register of Shipping), Marine Board and Mining Board the platform was build and put into operation in 1998
