||With many offshore installations in the UK sector of the North Sea now reaching or exceeding their original anticipated design life, there is a particular need to evaluate approaches to structural integrity management by offshore operators to ascertain their adequacy in managing aging structures. In addition to this, a significant proportion of the aging structures are now operated by parties that are relatively new to the United Kingdom Continental Shelf, and may not be following recognised good practice for structural integrity management. Earlier studies have highlighted the varying approaches to structural integrity management, in terms of both the methods used and their effectiveness. The objective of this study was to develop a comprehensive framework for the structural integrity management of fixed jacket structures reflecting good industry practice and stimulating continual performance improvement.
