The topside of an oil rig includes the surface deck of a platform, which encompasses all equipment for drilling, production, processing facilities for oil and gas, utilities to generate power, living quarters, and helicopter deck.

Materials and components in a topside construction must be able to perform in harsh and hostile environments.

Some platforms are floating production facilities with hulls more like a vessel.

As technology evolves and cost reduction becomes a priority after safety, Topsides modules may be produced in different countries, then shipped to the shipyard where the hull or the structure of the platform is assembled. It may be the opposite, when the construction of a hull or the structure of a platform is completed in the shipyard, it may be pulled to another shipyard to receive all the Topside modules.
