Environmental loads encountered by offshore compliant structures are more severe in deep water in addition to the complexities that arise during their installation. Because existing platforms show serious limitations in terms of storage space, geometric forms of offshore compliant platforms require special attention. A recent development in offshore deepwater platforms is the buoyant leg storage and regasification platform (BLSRP) to store and process liquefied natural gas (LNG) offshore. One of the main operational requirements of LNG tankers is that the degree of compliancy on the topside should be restrained to a large extent. The conceived structural form is a...
