Mooring installation

Mooring Installation from InterMoor

Pre-lay moorings involve the provision and installation of a complete additional mooring spread before the floating asset arrives on location.

Pre-laying the mooring system has some clear benefits whilst improving the efficiency of the drilling programme.

In effect for a pre-lay campaign two mooring systems are provided, with the rig using one whilst the second is ‘leap-frogged’ to the next well and prepared. The rig can therefore move to the new location and hook up to the installed mooring without waiting.

Benefits of pre-laying the mooring system:

  • Financial
  • Safety and integrity
  • Scheduling
  • Provides additional local activities.

It is clear that the direct financial benefits of pre-lay are a key factor, but the enhanced safety and integrity are critical aspects for consideration. Pre-laying a mooring spread moves this activity off the rig’s critical path and reduces the substantive time (and cost) pressures that holding up a drilling programme entails.

Acteon’s latest mooring connector, the IM Release allows faster “leap-frogging” between systems thanks to a Teledyne enabled acoustic release system, that can disconnect at the push of a button.
