Conventional floatover deck (FOD) installation on a jacket substructure requires the top of the structure to be recessed appropriately, either in the longitudinal or transverse direction to accommodate the vessel transporting the deck. The recess direction is very important to the design of the jacket and influences the outfitting of appurtenances, the shape of the deck and the floatover concept as a whole. This study investigates the structural integrity of typical longitudinal and transverse jackets suitable for FOD installation under both inplace and installation conditions. The study also assesses the structural efficiency of the two options under various installation conditions and benchmarks their structural performance against more conventional jackets associated with lift-installed decks.
