Weight Control of offshore installations is critical to ensure that any Assembly, Module or Topsides may be installed using the proposed method, with minimum hook-up, and that the overall design caters for the most severe operating criteria identified. RP O-3 establishes the requirements for weighing Assemblies, Modules or a complete Topsides facility. It presents methods for preparation before a weighing and reporting results after a weighing has been completed and establishes methods employed to determine the center of gravity from a weighing process.
I’d like to thank the Offshore committee for the hard work in getting this document ready for publishing. A special thanks goes out to Dave Bennett for providing his leadership for this document with respect to being a major author and editor during the development process
