Description: A deck officer in charge of the forward mooring party on board a very large liquid natural gas (LNG) carrier was seriously injured when a tensioned mooring line parted. At the time of the incident, the deck officer was standing in a location that was not identified on board the vessel as being within a snap-back danger zone. This incident has highlighted the behaviour of High Modulus Synthetic Fibre (HMSF) mooring lines fitted with synthetic tails when they fail under load.
This information paper provides a brief description of the incident and considers if additional guidance, including that contained in OCIMF publications.
