Metocean criteria are required for the design and operation of offshore and coastal structures. In order to develop criteria the available data must be carefully assessed, the underlying physical processes must be thoroughly understood, and appropriate statistical techniques must be applied.
OCG can deliver metocean criteria for a wide range of applications and have experience of doing so for numerous locations around the world. An involvement in both research and standards enables OCG to avoid situations where traditional approaches would lead to non-conservatism and to take advantage of situations where over-conservatism can be removed in order to reduce client costs.
Examples of recent projects are as follows: response based design criteria for platforms in the North Sea, current criteria for pipelines in the Mediterranean and Caspian, and non-stationary tidal analysis for a port in the Persian Gulf.
