The United Nations’ projections suggest a total world population of eight billion by the year 2030, with 96% of the growth in developing countries. Consequently it has been estimated that the world energy demand could grow by as much as 70% over the next 20 years. Most of this energy demand will have to be met from hydrocarbon resources. The offshore side of the oil and gas industry superseded onshore as the source of most of the earth’s hydrocarbons. For the offshore oil and gas industry, the challenge is to continue to provide for the future energy needs of the world’s consumers from resources in difficult locations in ways which are environmentally responsible, safe and economically viable. The lecture will present the factors in the selection of a concept design for deep water offshore oil and gas field developments, and the recent research and development activities and challenges in hydrodynamics analysis of deep water platform designs.
Prof. Atilla Incecik is Professor of Offshore Engineering and Associate Deputy Principal (International). Prior to his appointment at Strathclyde University Professor Incecik was Lloyd’s Register Chair of Offshore Engineering and Founding Head of School of Marine Science and Technology at Newcastle University. Professor Incecik has been responsible for the development of design and analysis tools and model testing of marine and offshore engineering systems during his research activities both in industry and academia. His current research includes development of dynamic load and response prediction tools for ships, offshore platforms and marine renewable energy devices. Professor Incecik is Research Manager of Industrial Doctoral Centre for Offshore Renewable Energy (IDCORE). He is a member of committees of a number of international professional bodies, an onoraryprofessor at Shanghai Jiao Tong University and Harbin Institute of Technology, and a visiting professor at Zhejiang University. Professor Incecik is Editor-in-Chief of Ocean Engineering Journal.
