Abstract

The offshore structures are used worldwide in different ways and for different purposes in a variety of weather conditions and water depths. The main aim of these structures is to explore and extract the gas and oil and it should works safely for approximately 25 years or more against some conditions. These structures plays a vital role on developing the economic level of the country and it is essential to be accurate in all of their planning, designing, manufacturing, transporting, and installing processes. There are many types these platforms which differ according to their function and the needed water depth. Gravity platform or condeep platform is one of these platforms which is fixed offshore platform, made by concrete. The purpose of this paper is to give some information overview about advantages, disadvantages, materials used, design, construction, transportation and installation of gravity platforms.
