Mooring Systems for Floating Drilling and Production Operations

22nd July 2015

Overview

Floating structures are becoming more common with the increasing number of oil discoveries made in deeper waters and hence a steady rise in the demand for new floating platforms such as FPSO, TLP, Semi-submersible and Spar. A key element for these floating platforms is the mooring system, and the design, operation, installation, inspection and maintenance for the mooring systems are very demanding and challenging tasks faced by the industry. There is a strong need for those working in the offshore industry to develop in depth understanding of the key mooring issues to carry out their work. This short course is offered to meet this need.

This short course begins with a broad view on floating drilling and production operations, followed by a few supporting areas such as floating vessel, riser, environmental criteria and loads. Then more detailed presentations and discussions are given to the mooring issues such as system overview, mooring components, anchor system, mooring analysis, installation, and inspection. The teaching methods include Power Point and video presentations, class discussions, and group class projects to provide the best learning process. Copies of the Power Point presentations and some class notes for the key mooring issues will be provided for future reference.

Why You Should Attend

A key requirement for a mooring system is its ability to keep on station to allow risers and flowlines to receive and export fluids in various weather conditions with minimal downtime. However, unplanned interruptions to production sometimes occur due to deficiencies in the mooring ranging from failures of mooring components to overloading or fatigue failures. Such failures are economically costly. With the current trend moving into deeper and deeper water, it is more important than ever to minimize the incidence of technical failures, production interruptions, and downtime. It is important that those who influence or make decisions on field development options and operations appreciate the technology and the significance of the key aspects of mooring systems for floating structures

This course is recommended for all personal involved with an FPSO project, whether new to the industry or whose area of responsibility have increased as well as experienced professionals who want to refresh their overall knowledge of the entire FPSO project process.
