HIGH-TECH SYSTEMS FOR HUTTON MATING AND TETHERING

Throughout the pioneering work on Conoco's Tension Leg Platform <TLP>, sophisticated high-tech systems have enabled many of the difficult feats such as mating and tethering to be accomplished with confidence. It is evident that these systems will continue to play significant roles in future deep water development. This paper describes several computer systems employed for the mating and tethering operations. The Temporary Ballast Computer, Load and Ballast Computer, Draught Monitoring System and Environmental Monitoring System are covered.
