Stationkeeping systems for floating offshore structures and mobile offshore units”, 2nd ed.

Peer reviewed only Published between: However, over time, the number of MODUs working in the deep water has increased along with more infrastructure thus increasing the probability of failure and also possible consequences of failure damage. To be consistent with the api rp 2sk formatting style of international standards, this 4 th edition of API RP 2SK has sorted all requirements into api rp 2sk “normative” section at the front, while recommendations are organized in the corresponding “informative” part in the Annex.

Publishers Content Coverage Privacy. Improvements api rp 2sk MODU owners have made to the fleet will also be discussed along with options that can help mitigate the risk of a MODU failing and doing damage to infrastructure during a hurricane.

Starting with Api rp 2sk Lili in and ending with Hurricanes Ivan, Qpi and Rita in andthe result was twenty-three MODUs having suffered either complete mooring failures or partial mooring failure with the vast majority of these occurring in the and hurricane season.

Much work has been done since the events of the and hurricane seasons to better understand the causes of moored MODU failures and learn from them.

New normative guidelines for api rp 2sk design Robustness Check have been added. Proceedings of an International Conference Submersible Technology: This API standard provides the comprehensive guideline for designing stationkeeping systems and has been cited in well over technical papers worldwide.

This knowledge has resulted in changes to the industry standards. Proceedings of an International Conference Submersible Technology: Industry standards that allow safe and economic operations are important to the industry, community and regulatory authorities.

About us Contact us Help Terms of use. This paper will focus on the api rp 2sk information and linkages to the changes and additional expectations for design and operation of moored MODUs for the GoM during hurricane season. Proceedings of an international conference Diverless and Deepwater Techology: No specific definitions are provided, however, on what is considered “away from?? Some examples are given for operations in the vicinity of other structures.
