The Oilfield Seamanship series describes and explains the majority of standard techniques used in marine operations of the offshore oilfield. The series concentrates on Towing. Anchor Handling, Barge Mooring and Moving, the Operation of Jack-Up type vessels afloat, the practice of stability control on semi-submersibles and ballast control techniques on such vessels.

This volume covers the use of spread mooring systems from the barge point of view. It deals with both ‘static’ (drilling units/support ship) and ‘mobile’ (pipelaying/trenching) mooring spreads. The book concentrates on the mooring system of semi-submersibles, but the procedures and equipment described are equally applicable to other types of specialist vessels.
