Description / Abstract:

This document specifies requirements and gives guidance for the site-specific assessment of mobile floating units for use in the petroleum and natural gas industries. It addresses the installed phase, at a specific site, of manned non-evacuated, manned evacuated and unmanned mobile floating units.

This document addresses mobile floating units that are monohull (e.g. ship-shaped vessels or barges); column-stabilized, commonly referred to as semi-submersibles; or other hull forms (e.g. cylindrical/conical shaped). It is not applicable to tension leg platforms. Stationkeeping can be provided by a mooring system, a thruster assisted mooring system, or dynamic positioning. The function of the unit can be broad, including drilling, floatel, tender assist, etc. In situations where hydrocarbons are being produced, there can be additional requirements.

The requirements of this document apply to the hull and stationkeeping system for all types of units. The activity specific operating guideline document requirements can be modified to be appropriate to the situation being assessed.

This document does not address all site considerations, and certain specific locations can require additional assessment (e.g. arctic and cold regions, etc.).

This document is applicable only to mobile floating units that are structurally sound and adequately maintained, which is normally demonstrated through holding a valid RCS classification certificate.

This document does not address design, transportation to and from site, or installation and removal from site.

This document sets out the requirements for site-specific assessments, but generally relies on other documents to supply the details of how the assessments are to be undertaken. In general:

— ISO 19901-7 is referenced for the assessment of the stationkeeping system;

— ISO 19904-1 is referenced to determine the metocean actions on the unit;

— The hull structure and airgap are assessed by use of a comparison between the site-specific metocean conditions and its design conditions, as set out in the RCS approved operations manual;

— ISO 13624-1 and ISO/TR 13624-2[1] are referenced for the assessment of the marine drilling riser of mobile floating drilling units. Agreed alternative methodologies can be used;

— IMCA M 220[5] is referenced for developing an activity specific operating guidelines. Agreed alternative methodologies can be used.

NOTE 1 The scope of ISO 19904-1 specifically states that its requirements do not apply to mobile units, but the methodologies given for assessing metocean actions can be used.

NOTE 2 RCS rules and the IMO MODU code[4] provide guidance for design and general operation of mobile floating units.
