On an offshore oil platform, topsides (c.f. jacket structure, which constitutes the lower half of the platform structure, partly submerged in sea) refers to the upper half of the structure, above the sea level, outside the splash zone, on which equipment is installed. This includes the oil production plant, the accommodation block and the drilling rig. They are often modular in design and so can be changed out if necessary allowing expensive platforms to be more readily updated with newer technology.

http://www.oceanicmc.com/ Oceanic 5000 is a DP2 Derrick Lay Vessel which can install offshore structures including jackets and topsides weighing up to 4400MT. The state-of-the-art Oceanic 5000 can also lay subsea pipelines utilizing her two double-joint stations resulting in considerable increase in lay rates. This video demonstrates installation of a 2000t jacket by launching method and a 1500t topside (deck) by lifting method. The entire pipe lay assembly process is carried out below the main working deck. This allows maximum pipe storage above deck and more free deck space for structural installation; thereby providing a safer and more productive working condition. The vessel is equipped with a specially-designed “piggy-back” system for the installation of carrier pipes to be simulta...
The Wheatstone Project successfully completed one of the largest offshore platform installations in Chevron's history, marking a major project milestone. Watch the journey of the Wheatstone topsides from fabrication to load-out, the sail-away, the arrival and the float-over onto the steel-gravity structure base. The Wheatstone Platform is the largest offshore gas processing platform ever installed in Australia, with a topsides weight of about 37,000 metric tons and the largest float-over installation Chevron has ever delivered globally.

The Mariner A topside is now complete! On 2 August the final piece of the giant puzzle was lifted into place on the 38 000 tonne topside. The topside consists of eight modules, two of them more than 10 000 tonnes. The flare, a crane and some stair towers have also been installed offshore by heavy lift vessel Saipem 7000. Now the floatel Safe Boreas is connected to the platform and the two million man hour topside scope can begin. The Mariner field is expected to come on stream late 2018.
The topsides lift was executed safely and successfully at Ingleside, TX earlier this year.
Installation of the Johan Sverdrup drilling platform jacket, called ‘Vilje’, during the spring of 2018. The jacket – engineered and constructed by Kværner Verdal – is now the second visible structure on the Johan Sverdrup field, and the launch marks the beginning of THE installation year for the Johan Sverdrup project – with three jackets, two topsides, more than 400km of pipelines, 200 km of power cables, and more – just in 2018!
Offshore platforms are remarkable engineering feats, therefor it is time for the 5 largest offshore platforms of the world! Massive in size, these structures take several years and often many billions of dollars to build — but when complete, they can extract oil and gas from some of the least-accessible spots on the planet. The Mars B/Olympus Platform in the Gulf of Mexico First oil production begun in February 2014 from the Mars B development through Olympus, Shell’s seventh, and largest, floating deep-water platform in the Gulf of Mexico. Combined production from Olympus and Shell’s original Mars platform is expected to deliver an estimated resource base of 1 billion barrels of oil equivalent (boe). The project is also directly investing $5 million dollars in community, social and env...
Offshore accident / Gintung Jacket. When building a platform, something goes wrong and the whole platform disappears into the ocean
The Iwaki Platform is located approximately 40km east of Nahara Cho in the Fukushima prefecture of Japan, and was installed in 1983 after the Iwaki Gas Field was discovered in 1973. The decommissioning of the platform was awarded to Nippon Steel Engineering Co Ltd, and subsequently SapuraAcergy Sdn Bhd was awarded the offshore scope of work which included the decommissioning of the topsides, jacket, and associated secion 12" gas export pipeline. This work was executed using the Sapura 3000 vessel and was completed in early 2010. SapuraAcergy Sdn Bhd requested the assistance of Constructive Media to assist with creating a 3D animation that re-enacted the decommissioning process of the Iwaki Platform.
Installing topsides on a jacket - Allseas
A $40-million (U.S.) engineering structure belonging to Iran's South Pars gas field to be used in offshore platforms sank into the Gulf as it was being installed, media reports said on Wednesday. "An investigation is under way," Maritime Industrial Co. (SADRA) managing director Mehdi Etesami told the ISNA news agency, without giving an official reason for the incident.Iran later called for foreign help to recover the gas platform from the seabed, its Mehr news agency reported, in a rare request by an industry isolated by sanctions. The equipment was built by SADRA, an affiliate of the industrial wing of Iran's Revolutionary Guards, over a 30-month period. The incident occurred Monday night as the 1,850-tonne jacket developed for South Pars Phase 13 sank to a depth of 80 metres, media re...
