Fiber Moorings are increasingly seen as having significant advantages for use in permanent deepwater moorings and several have now been installed worldwide. They have generally been seen to be of particular advantage in areas where the environmental conditions are modest. However the advantages they offer in good position keeping and relatively easy installation are also attractive in harsh environment locations. In order to be accepted for use in fields such as offshore western Norway a thorough review has been undertaken to determine the level of special consideration that should be given to such locations and the selection of fiber rope moorings that will be suitable for such use. The paper describes the characteristics that need special consideration during specification and comments on the additional work that will be required before such moorings can be used at such locations.
