In lack of simultaneous metocean data for wind, waves and currents, Norwegian design regulations recommend a combination of metocean parameters for estimation of extreme metocean loads on offshore structures assumed to be conservative. The possible conservatism in the design regulations and also the effect of currents in the estimation of extreme loads are considered. A simplified parametric load model for a jacket, based on waves and currents, is assumed. Both measured and hindcast wave data are combined with different measured current data into load time series and the extreme loads estimated. The extreme load according to the recommended approach is also estimated. This is done at four locations in the northern North Sea. When compared to the recommended approach, the other approaches yield a reduced estimated extreme metocean load. Current is found to have an effect on the total extreme load. The results are intended be illustrative and not suitable for use in design.
