Towing, Positioning and Hook-up for Offshore Production (Oilfield Seamanship Series Volume 8) - Oilfield Seamanship Series - Volume 8
This publication discusses the planning, execution and techniques used in towing, positioning and hook-up operations for large floating structures in offshore environments. The text is supported by over 300 explanatory diagrams, photographs, examples and tables.
This is a practical guide to the planning and execution of complex high value towing and heavy mooring operations. It covers every phase of the operation from pre-tow out planning to riser hook-up and first oil. Detailed information is provided on tug handling, deep sea towing operations and the laying, tensioning and attachment of complex mooring systems, with an emphasis on best practice and reduction of risk. The book will benefit all personnel who are engaged in these operations, but specifically construction engineering groups, marine superintendents, marine consultants, tugmasters and construction superintendents, as well as oil company personnel seeking information on how these operations are carried out.
The Oilfield Seamanship series describes and explains standard techniques used in marine operations in offshore oilfields. The series concentrates on towing, anchor handling, barge mooring and moving, the operation of jack-up vessels afloat, the practice of stability control on semi-submersibles and ballast control techniques.
