Please advice how to proceed.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If it is the weblogic included with OBIEE you are out of luck
For normal weblogic you can make a cluster of applications with one copy running in DR site and one in primary with both serving users.
Yes - no failover, just reasonable reduction in performance, and nobody notices half of your infrastructure is down.

Any Updates ?
Yes, update - do you have weblogic licence for CPUs sufficient to cover 2 installations of it?

In short you need to set up node manager for local node and a node manager for other node in admin server,
then deploy all OBIEE components to both (all) nodes
and configure reverse proxy/balancer in front of them, like oracle http server, apache or nginx (later is faster)

1st step takes long read (i can tell shortcuts, but I dont want to meet you in half year asking to remind)
2nd has step by step (given you learned 1st by doing)
3rd is architectural and political choice, existing load balancer is good enough for it
