Abstract This report is one of a series addressing general issues relevant to blast and fire engineering for offshore structures. Information on 21 platforms was examined in order to establish generic data and information representative of existing and new installations in the North Sea. A description of previous and present-day practice for offshore structures is presented with particular emphasis on topside structures, modular construction, equipment and utilities, secondary structures, module cladding and non-structural components. A set of four representative modules has been established for each of which design details have been developed enabling the investigation of various fire/blast scenarios.
