What Is a Fixed Platform?

Permanent structures fixed at sea for oil and gas extraction services will not be moved after installation. In 1947, the world's first steel fixed platform developed rapidly. In the 1970s, the world's largest steel fixed platform was built at a depth of 312m in the Gulf of Mexico, Louisiana, USA, with a total height of 368m. Offshore fixed platforms are divided into four types: pile foundation type, gravity type, tower cable type and tension leg type according to the structural form. There are two types of steel and concrete according to the material; drilling oil production, oil collection, oil storage, and metering according to the use. , Torch, living facilities and other platforms.
