In addition, regional requirements or considerations have also been included in annexes to make this API standard globally applicable. Proceedings of an International Conference Submersible Technology: Starting with Hurricane Lili in and ending with Hurricanes Ivan, Katrina and Rita in andthe result was twenty-three MODUs having suffered either api rp 2sk mooring failures or partial mooring failure with the vast majority of these occurring in the and hurricane season.

Although much of these learnings have been captured in the Appendices e. Peer reviewed only Published between: Xpi examples are given for operations in the vicinity of other structures. Improvements the MODU owners api rp 2sk made to the fleet will also be discussed along with options that can help mitigate the risk api rp 2sk a MODU failing and doing damage to infrastructure during a hurricane.

This knowledge has resulted in changes to the industry standards.

However, over time, the number of MODUs working in the deep water has increased along with more infrastructure thus increasing the appi of failure and also possible consequences of failure damage. New requirements, adjusted return periods, introduction of formal risk assessment processes and direct api rp 2sk to inspection of mooring components are now api rp 2sk.
