Rationalisation of FPSO design issues: Relative reliability levels achieved between different FPSO limit states

At the request of the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), Noble Denton Europe Ltd (NDE) has carried out a qualitative review of reliability levels achieved by typical FPSOs for different limit states.
