Abstract The main objective of this project was to improve the integrity of the mooring systems on floating production platforms, by helping persons who live and work on these structures to become more involved in the vital task of their surveillance and maintenance. The feedback provided on the actual performance of mooring systems should assist designers and manufacturers to improve mooring system designs. The report identifies gaps in existing knowledge of mooring behaviour and components which will orient future research.
