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.

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.

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...
Biggest Oil Platform Rigs in the World as of 2017 As oceans swell around them, some of the world's tallest manmade structures live in water, not on land. There's not a whole lot of variety when it comes to this manmade mammoths of the sea. Most of theses mega-builds draw oil from the depths, the only purpose as yet discovered that's lucrative enough to pay for their out-sized cost and complicated engineering. One more thing they have in common is that they all can wow with impressive size. We look at seven of the most intense and impressive offshore structures across the globe. [for text and creatives, http://loloha.com/biggest-oil-platform-rigs-in-the-world-as-of-2017/] Berkut While the Berkut oil platform toils in near anonymity in Russia's Far East, it does so with a heft unlike any...
Loading one of the heaviest topsides ever onto a deck barge for offshore installation. See how 14000 ton is driven onto a barge while going through changing water levels
9 January 2016 the Aasta Hansteen living quarter was lifted on to the Aasta Hansteen topside, currently under construction in Ulsan, South Korea. The living quarter weighs approximately 3 000 tonnes, and will accommodate 108 people. It measures 50 times 25 meters. Around 100 small and large equipment packages have been received from suppliers all over Europe, many of them from Norway. The living quarter was built in The Netherlands, and the 11 000 nautical miles long journey to South Korea took 39 days. The heavy lift operation took five hours and was performed by a barge crane.
Short video summarising the jack up, load out, sailaway and installation of the Lunskoye A Topsides.
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.

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...
A spar is an offshore floating production structure consists of a large vertical cylinder bearing topsides with equipment. Like a Tension Leg Platform, it is typically moored to the seabed.
The topsides lift was executed safely and successfully at Ingleside, TX earlier this year.
