Jacob, P. and W. Stewart; "Seismic Time History Response of the Maleo Producer;" Paper 19480, Offshore Technology Conference, 2008
The Maleo Producer is a converted Bethlehem JU 250 (1970's design) mat-supported jack-up that is currently operating as a gas production platform in the Madura Straits, offshore Indonesia. The field is located in a seismically active region. This paper summarizes the procedures used to assess the structural adequacy of the platform for seismic loading. The reported results along with those for overall foundation stability were accepted by the American Bureau of Shipping for class approval of the structure as a fixed offshore installation.
