Global exploration of offshore oil resources poses ever-increasing challenges for designers of offshore platforms. Operations in cold regions, where threats posed by ice are often exacerbated by extreme seas, are particularly challenging. Remote locations pose even greater challenges since the evacuation of personnel in such extreme conditions is more rigorous. Deep water further magnifies the challenges by increasing the significance of the hydrodynamics of the mooring and sub-sea systems. Oceanic has access to a wide range of physical modeling facilities.


From preliminary analysis to comprehensive physical modeling programs, Oceanic can provide a range of services to assist in the development of clients’ designs.

Numerical Simulation

The complex relationship between a structure and its environment is essential to understanding marine performance. Benchmarked and validated against full- and model-scale data, simulation technology allows for design evaluation flexibility unheard of a decade ago.

Physical Modeling

By creating accurate scale models and simulating real-world environments through state-of-the-art research facilities, techniques, and technologies, Oceanic proves and improves clients’ concepts and advances designs through solid scientific analysis.
