With continued low oil prices, there is a need to develop low-cost production platforms for marginal and deep water. On the other hand, there is an increasing awareness related to safety and environmental aspects. These constraints call for a high degree of innovation and integrity. The scientists and engineers working in this climate cannot accept simplification and shortcuts and it is important that proper engineering, testing and design be carried out. It is appreciated that the management of operating companies acknowledge the importance of safe design to protect lives, the environment, and their investments.
