When working offshore, there seems to be no end to situations that call for mooring systems, but no two are alike. From riser buoyancy cans that need to be anchored to the seafloor—and tethered to the riser - to moorings for FPSO turret buoys and mid-water arches, Samson offers solutions that capitalize on the strength, lightweight, abrasion resistance and reliability of well-designed and manufactured high-performance synthetic ropes.

Samson custom-engineered ropes used for specialty moorings that simply last longer under the conditions they encounter offshore. They combine total resistance to corrosion or deterioration from salt water with better resistance to cyclic bend fatigue than wire ropes. Add in safer, easier handling, simple inspection and splicing in the field and there’s real, measurable value. They’re 85% lighter than wire ropes while achieving the same strength or higher, and they float unless designed otherwise.

When the tether chains attaching the buoyancy cans to the risers at one recent Gulf of Mexico installation began failing from corrosion, replacements were spliced from Samson high performance synthetic ropes. Emergency installation was quick and efficient—all the riser buoyancy can chains were eventually replaced as the initially installed chain replacements were evaluated.

SUPPLY VESSEL MOORING SYSTEMS

Many rigs in the Gulf of Mexico use specially designed supply vessel mooring systems (SVMS) designed by a Samson master distributor—SWOS in Houston, Texas. These systems combine the best Samson ropes to achieve the elongation and strength required when challenged to hold supply vessels in position while transferring supplies, yet standing it off under good control to avoid contact with the rig itself.

Samson’s full line of single braid, jacketed, and double braid ropes manufactured with high-performance or traditional fibers allow engineers to tailor a system to your applications particular requirements.
