||This study was undertaken to compare stability standards specified for intact and damaged semi-submersible units. It involved reviewing relevant published literature, HSE and United Kingdom Department of Energy reports, past incidents involving loss of stability of semi-submersibles and issues associated with alternative uses of semi-submersible units. A key recommendation resulting from this study is that the HSE should investigate further the practicality of reconciling traditional prescriptive stability standards with a risk-based approach.
