Starting with Hurricane Lili in and ending with Hurricanes Ivan, Katrina and Rita in andthe result was twenty-three MODUs having suffered either complete mooring failures or partial mooring failure with the vast majority ro these occurring in the and hurricane season.

In addition, regional requirements or considerations have also been included in annexes to make this API standard globally applicable. 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. Improvements the 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.

This paper will focus on the key information and linkages to the changes and additional expectations wpi design and operation of moored MODUs for the GoM during hurricane season. Some examples are given for operations in the vicinity of other structures.

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

Appendices H, CH and K, Mayit is difficult for end users to quickly understand and implement the requirements of the standard when they are interspersed with informative recommendations in a document that is over pages long. To be consistent with the rl 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.

Although much of these learnings have been captured in the Appendices e. Three strong hurricanes Ivan, Katrina and Rita entering the Gulf of Mexico within roughly a 12 month period and carving paths through areas of the Gulf of Mexico with extensive oilfield infrastructure was unprecedented.
