...I would like to get a new country added: Offshore.
I think it could be added to the "Unkown/Other" region and have regions added within it to decribe different offshore areas like Gulf of Mexico, Mederterainian Sea, Indian Ocean, North Atlantic, etc. Within these regions, the "city" could be either "N/A" (not applicable) or somthing specific.
Example for the 2100' Petronius Platform:
Region - Unknown/Other
Country - Offshore
Area - Gulf of Mexico
City - Viosca Knoll Block 786
:nuts: :nuts: :nuts:

Shouldn't offshore structures be listed under the country they are owned by?
Sep 11, 2003, 8:08 PM
they are owned by corporations & joint ventures for the most part and many operate in international waters....
Sep 11, 2003, 8:10 PM
ohhhhh. ok. sounds good then. :)
Sep 11, 2003, 8:26 PM
How about where the structure was built originally? Or what country it was launched from?

Most of the Gulf of Mexico is part of the Exclusive Economic Zones of USA, Mexico and Cuba, only the east polygon isn't.
I guess very few of these structures in the world aren't within the 200 nautical miles.

Would it be plausible then to use particular countries, but define new "states" or "provinces" to handle offshore? For example: US Territorial Waters, Gulf of Mexico and leave the city as "Not Applicable" and put "Located at/in/over/etc..." in the description?

Kelvin, that might be best.

I created an "offshore" country now, http://skyscraperpage.com/cities/?countryID=301
If there are structures that should be put into it, then create the area/city for them, and the post links to both the structurea and the quasi-city here.

how about ships? Should they also be considered offshore?
Sep 25, 2003, 4:20 AM
Its probably best not to add anymore ships to the database. I actually removed a bunch of them a little while ago
Sep 25, 2003, 8:46 AM
What about ships that are in dry docks acting as museums in the middle of cities?
Such as the Golden Hind, London
Sep 25, 2003, 11:14 AM
back to "offshore" ....
i just added
"North Sea" as a "state" http://skyscraperpage.com/cities/?stateID=1101
"Troll" as City http://skyscraperpage.com/cities/?cityID=1619
I know there is/was(?) the huge Troll Platform in the Database and Diagram. But how can it be moved to its "new city"?
some other"new cities" could be Statfjord, Norne, ... for Norway and Brent for UK ....

Is one of the Troll Platforms in the database? I never saw it. The only two that I know of for sure are Baldpate Compliant Tower & Hibernia Gravity Base.

i found at http://www.olavolsen.no/Offshore_Concrete.HTM this interesting Diagram:
a printable version of the image in Adobe Acrobat format with the depht of the Water:
They should submit those Drawings here ... ;)

Very cool! I thought one of the Gulfaks sank though (A, B, or C I cant remember which). I have a paper concerning it's demise somewhere...
Oct 4, 2003, 5:47 PM
The sinking of the Sleipner A offshore platform:
Oct 4, 2003, 5:59 PM
Yes, that's the one.
Are you going to do some offshore projects, Marco?
Oct 4, 2003, 6:22 PM
hmm - i like them, but i have no plans to do one
Oct 4, 2003, 6:34 PM
Why, when I click on the Industrial Link, do I only get one result (Petronius) whereas there should be at least four hits (Petronius, Baldpate, Hibernia, and Bullwinkle)?
Oct 4, 2003, 7:17 PM
industrial link??? what is that?
in the "new search engine"????
Oct 4, 2003, 10:38 PM
It's a structure use category meant for anything involving moderate or heavy industry. Oil platforms definately apply and it's more appropriate for these structures than Mechanical.
Oct 5, 2003, 9:09 PM
hmm - i did one ....
the Shafts, Cranes and the habitat(?) were easy, but the chaotic rest is pure fantasy .... :D

I think they call everything above the shafts the Topsides. Usually they get built seperately (on land) and then are floated out to final position once the base unit is sunk.
