This paper reviews the latest research and analyses related to the risk assessment of ship-FPSO collision. The focus is placed on: existing criteria, FPSO collision accident, design scenarios for FPSO collision, mechanics of collision incidents, consequences and acceptance criteria. The research achievements of ships’ collision and grounding since 1990s are introduced. Issues specific to ship-FPSO collisions that deserve further development are addressed. The content of this paper is mainly drawn from the ISSC 2006 Specialist Committee V.1 on Collision and Grounding.
