When development of the North Sea fields began in the mid-60s, the industry had never faced such a hostile environment. While simple platform designs derived from those used in the Gulf of Mexico, sufficed for the shallow southern North Sea, the severe storms and great water depths of the northern North Sea called for major engineering and technological innovation. These structures had to be designed to withstand wind gusts of more than 100 km/hour and waves 30 metres high. Other problems included the ever-present salt-water corrosion and fouling by marine organism.
