Permanent moorings can have a life span of 20 to 30 years and Floating Production System (FPS) operators are often faced with mooring system integrity issues. Budgetary and technical constraints affect the strategy they choose to ensure that the reliability of their mooring systems stays uncompromised.

InterMoor can provide Mooring Integrity Management (MIM) programs that are tailored to their assets and encompass:

  • Regular inspection and evaluation
  • Identification and execution of routine maintenance operations
  • Analytical prediction of a mooring line’s probability of failure
  • Establishment of a Mooring Repair Plan (MRP)
  • Procurement, fabrication, storage, and maintenance of spare mooring components and installation aids.

The cost of the engineering services needed to develop a MRP is relatively small and it can dramatically enhance an operator’s ability to respond quickly to a mooring failure, a growing necessity in today’s regulatory environment.

InterMoor's mooring integrity expert, Kent Longdridge, contributed to 2 papers in Oilfield Technology on the topic:
