There are numerous types of offshore oil and gas production platforms which can either sit or be fixed on the seabed or float, but the processing of the hydrocarbons is the same. The fluids and gasses are separated into different process chains before being exported ashore via subsea pipeline.

  • The late 60’s saw the start of the offshore construction industry in Scotland. There were quite a few yards then, Highlands Fabricators and McDermott’s in the North, Howard Doris’s yard at Kishorn in the West coast where mostly concrete platforms were fabricated and Lewis Offshore on the Isle of Lewis. There were also a scattering of yards in the Clyde area and Harland & Wolff of Belfast built the Sea Quest which discovered the first oil in the North Sea. It was built while I was serving my time as a marine fitter in the at H & W yard in the 1960’s. All the yards had access to deep water berths for loading the structures onto barges, launching facilities or drydocks.

    The following sections examine the construction of a steel jacket fixed production platform. This is the most common and very suitable to North Sea oil and gas fields on the continental shelf. We shall also have a look at how the offshore production platforms work; oil and gas is processed on the platform before being exported ashore via the subsea pipelines.
