This edition has been revised in recognition of the increasing use of recommended SPM mooring equipment to moor conventional tankers in tandem at FPSO/FSO terminals. It was also recognised that conventional tankers will tandem moor to FPSOs/FSOs using the same shipboard mooring equipment as recommended for all SPMs, hence, the importance of understanding the limitations of shipboard equipment used in conjunction with different terminal mooring configurations.
