The paper discusses typical full life-cycle of operational support for offshore platforms based on integrity monitoring systems, data management, and system maintenance services. The paper focuses on data management using a Client Data Center that provides offshore and onshore data hosting, postprocessing, and long term archive via the Internet. Properly selected, operational support provides elements to manage historical data critical to future assessments of the offshore-platform structural health, including the fatigue life of vital systems like mooring, tendons, and risers. The paper highlights the benefits of carrying out operational support continuously with the major goal — to make offshore platforms safe and profitable.
