Different types of anchor have been used for UKCS FPSOs. For shorter field lives
where the unit will be required to move to another location, drag anchors are commonly
used. For longer term applications, piled anchors e.g. suction piles, may be used.
Suitable conservative assumptions on soil behaviour and anchor behaviour should be
made to take account of the large economic penalty and environmental consequences of
damage to risers from loss of positioning. Guidance on anchor design is contained in
ABS (ref.24) chapter 5 section 2, including suggested safety factors in table 1.
