Mooring System Reliability in the North Sea

/
A study performed by DNV GL has shed light on how strength capacity of Mobile Offshore Drilling Unit (MODU) mooring systems relates to overall mooring system reliability; in short, it doesn’t. Comparing failure rates from installations operating on the UK Continental Shelf (UKCS) to those operating on the Norwegian Continental Shelf (NCS), there is little change in the rate of single-line and multi-line failure despite increased strength requirements for NCS units.
