A b s t r a c t The article pointed out that the optimization technique for offshore hydrocarbon field development and construction project allows us to minimize the number of capitalintensive and labor-intensive fixed offshore platforms (FOP), providing the optimal number of FOPs or the optimum ratios of FOPs and subsea production complexes (SPC), placing at that the SPC at such a distance from FOP when there is provided optimum number of wells by options, which are drilled from these

The proposed in the article problem-solving approach will enable to adapt it with little difficulty to gas and gas condensate fields.
