||Reassessment of offshore structures are often necessary for a variety of reasons: many existing offshore structures are being used well beyond their original design life, which necessitates the assessment of state of the structure in case of any deterioration; continuous advances being made in the field of safety of offshore structures against the risks of fires and explosions, which necessitates the re- assessment of the structure taking into account new data related to gas and explosion loading and response models; HSE requires the duty holder to carry out an assessment to demonstrate that risks have been reduced to as low as reasonably practicable (ALARP). This report deals with the re-assessment and strengthening methods for blast walls, decks and floors of offshore structures.
