Physical Oceanographic and Meteorological Data for Beaufort and Chukchi Seas: Support Reliability Based Design Criteria for Arctic Offshore Oil and Gas Structures

The intent of this project was to produce information that will facilitate implementation of the ISO 19906 Standard: Petroleum and Natural Gas Industries - Arctic Offshore Structures (i.e., the normative). The information collected in this effort consists of meteorological and oceanographic (metocean) information, for US waters in both the Chukchi and Beaufort seas, in a consistent format.

A full complement of design values for the region is required to implement and ultimately, produce safe and reliable offshore structure designs. This project included identification of metocean data of good quality and sufficient quantity to serve as an adequate statistical sample of data. The data was identified, acquired and processed. After processing into a common format, bulk statistics were calculated from the samples. These statics included quantile values corresponding to parameter values with a low rate of occurrence. The purpose was to identify those values of metocean parameters that have occurred, but occur infrequently.
