Tension-Leg Platforms. A tension-leg platform is a vertically moored floating structure normally used for the offshore production of oil or gas and is particularly suited for water depths greater than m (about ft). From: Marine Structural Design Calculations, Related terms: Fixed Platforms; Floating Production Storage and Offloading.

A tension-leg platform (TLP) or extended tension leg platform (ETLP') is a vertically moored floating structure normally used for the offshore production of oil or gas, and is particularly suited for water depths greater than metres (about ft) and less than metres (about ft).Use of tension-leg platforms has also been proposed for wind turbines.

The buoyancy of the facility's hull offsets the weight of the platform, requiring clusters of tight tendons, or tension legs, to secure the structure to the foundation on the seabed. Tension Leg Platform. A Tension Leg Platform (TLP) is a vertically moored compliant platform.

The floating platform with its excess buoyancy is vertically moored by taut mooring lines called tendons (or tethers). The structure is vertically restrained precluding. Magnolia is an offshore oil drilling and production Extended Tension Leg Platform in the Gulf of was the world's deepest ETLP, reaching 1, m (4, ft), beating the Marco Polo TLP by m ( ft).

In MarchBig Foot took over this claim in 1, m (5, ft). A Tension-leg platform or Extended Tension Leg Platform [ETLP] is a vertically moored floating structure normally used for the offshore production of oil or gas, and is particularly suited for water depths greater than three hundred [m] metres [approximately feet] and less than one thousand five hundred [m] meters [approximately.

Big Foot is one of Chevron’s major capital projects in the deepwater U.S. Gulf of Mexico. The extended tension-leg platform is located miles ( km) south of New Orleans, Louisiana, in Walker Ridge 29 and rests in a water depth of approximately 5, feet (1, m).

The platform supports an onboard, full-capacity drilling rig for. Tension Leg Platform design is a challenging and popular area of research in the offshore oil industry. In order to compete in the International Student Offshore Design Competition (ISODC), a Tension Leg Platform (TLP) was designed.

The first Tension Leg Platform (TLP) was installed in to develop the Hutton field in the Central North Sea in about ft of water. It successfully demonstrated the ability of a floating platform tethered to the seabed to drill and produce with surface trees.

In the ensuing years, twenty three additional TLPs have been installed and five Cited by: 6. This illustration shows several types of offshore oil and gas structures. Various designs can be used for drilling, production management, crude storage and offloading.

#1 and #2 are conventional fixed platforms anchored to the seabed; #3 is a compliant tower; #4 and #5 are vertically moored tension leg and mini-tension leg platforms (#4 represents the design of the ConocoPhillips' Magnolia. A Tour of Brutus, Shell’s off-shore tension leg platform (TLP) Brutus is a Tension-Leg Platform (TLP) that is tethered to the sea floor by tendons.

The facility makes all its own power — generally from the natural gas it produces — and desalinates sea water for drinking. The tension-leg platform (TLP) is a hybrid type of offshore platform, fixed for the vertical degrees of freedom and compliant for the horizontal degrees of freedom. The platform structure is connected to the sea-bed foundation by vertical moorings (tension legs) which are kept in tension under all conditions by the excess buoyancy over weight of the by: 3.

(May ) Ning Xu, B.S., Texas A&M University Chair of Advisory Committee: Dr. Jun Zhang The static stability of a Tension Leg Platform (TLP) with an intact tendon system is principally provided by its tendons and hence quite different from those of a.

A tension leg platform (TLP) is a vertically moored, buoyant, comp liant structural system wherein excess buoyancy of the platform (in excess of weight and riser loads) maintains tension in the mooring system.

A TLP may be designed to serve a number of functional roles associated with offshore oil and gas exploitation. It is considered particularly. @article{osti_, title = {Tension leg platform anchoring method and apparatus}, author = {Collipp, B G}, abstractNote = {This patent describes a tension leg platform anchor apparatus adapted to be positioned on a marine bottom of a body of water, to secure a tension leg platform to the marine bottom.
