Offshore Technology Conference Disciplines 4. Abstract The growth in deepwater application of synthetic fiber rope moorings has created a need for an industry design code for such mooring systems. This paper presents an overview on the development of this RP.

Synthetic fiber ropes have many advantages for deepwater moorings, but their unique properties and influence on the mooring system performance must be properly accounted for in the design. Furthermore, rope manufacturing, testing, and deployment require special considerations. This RP is therefore developed to address the unique features associated with mooring design and analysis; rope design, testing and manufacturing; rope handling and installation; and rope inspection and maintenance.

It is hoped that use of the RP can help achieve synthetic fiber rope mooring systems that have similar reliability as their steel counterparts, and can improve efficiencies in deepwater field developments.

The paper outlines the development basis and principles, the participation of an Ad-Hoc API Work Group consisting of operators, designers, regulatory and government agents, rope manufacturers, and installation contractors. It also discusses the key technical issues identified and resolved, which include design concerns and factors of safety for overloading, fatigue, stiffness, creep rupture, minimum tension, rope damage evaluation, and discard criteria.

Introduction and Background DeepStar has been actively involved in the study and testing of alternative deepwater mooring components since its inception in Fig. The intent of the test program was to gain installation and handling experience, to determine extent and rate of creep of rope samples and bedding-in requirements, and to study other effects on the rope due to exposure to a realistic environment.

During that meeting, participants acknowledged that use of synthetic fiber ropes is probably the only practical solution for ultradeep water moorings. As a fitting way to culminate several years of development in synthetic mooring technology, and to take advantage of the collective learning and expertise of DeepStar members and the industry as a whole, DeepStar volunteered to undertake this task.
