REPORT ON DESIGN OF SINGLE-BUOY MOORING TERMINALS
This report has been prepared to provide general guidance and insights for the planning, design and construction of single buoy moorings (SBM) for very large crude carriers. It is intended for use by qualified engineers and its primary focus is the identification and evaluation of the environmental forces which the system must resist. In addition, it includes a discussion of the system economics, site selection, environmental protection and regulatory control of a single buoy mooring system. Two basic types of single buoy moorings have been proven to perform well: the catenary anchor leg mooring (CALM) and the single anchor leg mooring (SALM). Both types of SBM's are considered in this report. ,
