Paper Number: OTC-21610-MS
... Abstract The Wheatstone central processing platform (CPP) is to be located on top of a submerged relic reef offshore Northwestern Australia in a water depth of 71m. This reef is a long narrow feature roughly 10km long but only about 1km wide (Fig 1). Existing wave hindcasts the project had...

... hindcasts and process studies. Several events of moderately intense currents with quasi-periodic fluctuations were observed in early 2009 while the Loop Current was positioned to the east of the SE. Results show that the model hindcasts are capable of replicating many of the characteristics of the deep...

... the risk of being caught in a manned condition by a hurricane. Conversely, if a unit were drilling a particularly difficult location that may require longer time to make the unit safe for evacuation, then a longer lead time hurricane may be more appropriately used. The GOMOS hindcast was chosen to derive...
