Offshore oil and gas exploration and exploitation requires reliable infrastructure. One crucial issue to consider is the reliability of the structure. Structural designs generally use deterministic or fixed values in their calculations. However, the factors involved in the design process may be random variables, such as environmental loads, materials, dimensions, and operational conditions, which may vary. Therefore, when calculating the reliability of a structure, these random variables must be treated with the science of statistics and probability. This research uses probabilistic and statistical methods via the Monte Carlo method to analyze the reliability of offshore jacket structures. The jacket platform is destined for the four-legged Java Sea around Gresik, Indonesia. The research results show that the Jacket platform has a high level of reliability for operating loads of K = 0.9883 and extreme loads of K = 0.9963 based on reliability analysis using the Monte Carlo Simulation method. Although the reliability figure does not exceed 1, this can be taken as a sign that the Jacket platform is declared safe in the analyzed situations. This reliability analysis ensures that the jacket platform is reliable and safe in dealing with the various environmental conditions and loads encountered during its operational life.
