    Abstract

    The integrity of moorings and anchorages is a vital element in offshore production. In ice-affected areas they need special consideration because of the high loads imposed by ice and the unusual characteristics of the seabed. This paper examines the potential role of moorings in future developments in ice-infested waters and identifies the need for research in specific areas. The paper begins with a review of the current practice in using moorings for platforms in ice-affected regions. Future concepts for exploration/production in the deeper Arctic waters are then considered with regards to mooring and anchoring aspects.
