This knowledge has resulted in changes to the industry standards. Introduction MODUs in the Gulf of Mexico are a critical part of the infrastructure required for exploration and development of oil and gas in preparation for the market. A large Joint Industry Project was also formed that focused on gathering data, assessing MODU performance, calibrating observed performance to code expectations and addressing some analysis questions. Drag anchor design FOS has also been updated. Proceedings of an international conference Oceanology: This paper will focus on the key information and linkages to the changes and additional expectations for design and operation of moored MODUs for the GoM during hurricane season.

Sheriff’s Encyclopedic Dictionary of Applied Geophysics, fourth edition. In addition, regional requirements or considerations have also been included in annexes to make this API standard globally applicable. This API standard provides the comprehensive guideline for designing 2ssk systems and has been cited in 2ks over technical 2wk worldwide. Proceedings of an international conference Diverless and Deepwater Techology: To be consistent with the recent formatting style of international standards, this 4 th edition of API RP 2SK has sorted all requirements into the “normative” section at the front, while recommendations are organized in the corresponding “informative” part in the Annex.

New requirements, adjusted return periods, introduction of formal risk assessment processes and direct linkage to inspection of mooring components are now incorporated.

Updated corrosion allowance ranges, selecting criteria based on latest industry data and findings. Proceedings of an International Conference Submersible Technology: Stationkeeping systems for floating offshore structures and mobile offshore units”, 2nd ed.

John’s, Newfoundland, Canada, Improvements the MODU owners have made to the fleet will also be discussed along with options that can help mitigate the risk of a Ro failing and doing damage to infrastructure during a hurricane.
