Floating Offshore Installations Rules


LR’s new Rules and Regulations for the Construction and Classification of a Floating Offshore Installation at a Fixed Location are now available, providing a comprehensive set of technical standards specifically tailored to floating offshore installations. The Rules are based on LR’s extensive experience and incorporate input from the industry.

LR has developed the Rules to allow both a risk-based approach and a more conventional prescriptive route to classification, by including an option to allow the use of risk assessment techniques to determine critical elements and performance standards to be used as the basis for classification. This option facilitates the approval of novel design arrangements, permits design optimisation and maximises the benefits of active integrity management during operation. The Rules can also be applied in a conventional manner. LR has spent the last year overhauling and updating the Rules’ technical standards, which cover all types of hull form, including FPSOs, semi-submersibles, TLPs, buoys and spars, with material requirements given for both steel and concrete. The Rules also include requirements for mooring systems, risers, process plant and utility systems.
