In recent years there has been considerable interest in the offshore industry in using high strength weldable steels in the construction of offshore structures. This growing trend has seen high strength steel widely used in the fabrication of Jack-up platforms for production purposes, largely due to the optimisation of light weight design. This is particularly important due the competitive Oil & Gas industry, as considerable reduction in weight can lead to a significant saving in both manufacturing and operation costs.
