While recuperating from an injury, I scoured the internet for info. on TLPs at the behest of a colleague — anything to distract myself from the pain. By Friday, I was able to assemble a list. Here’s a summary.1

TLP: Displacement v. Topside weight

TLP: Water depth v. Topside weight

It is interesting to note that the largest TLPs, viz., Snorre A and Heidrun are both owned by Statoil. In terms of weights and displacements, these two are literally off the chart when compared with the rest — an incredible feat.

Plot code: to plot (a) displacement v. topside weight, and (b) water depth v. topside weight

  1. There may be a few more than listed; I just don’t have enough info. without going through paid subscriptions like WoodMac.
