Deepwater Mooring – going deeper, getting stronger
As oil and gas operators go deeper and further offshore in search of new fields, the demands on deepwater synthetic fibre mooring systems increase significantly. OIL’s knowledge and experience is a vital component in the design and installation of deepwater mooring systems. Using Lankhorst’s dedicated synthetic fibre rope test machine, we are able to establish project baseline test data and test for ‘what if’ scenarios by simulating hurricanes and loop current events.
Working with Lankhorst Ropes, OIL has designed and deployed polyester rope mooring systems for Spares, Floating Production, Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessels, submerged turret loading buoys and floating production platforms.
For all your offshore mooring requirements, OIL has the experience and know-how to design, supply and install offshore mooring systems that are fully optimized and compliant with industry standards and best working practice.
