Since the first Single Buoy Storage System (SBS) installed in Aquitaine-Tunisia in 1974 [1, 2], many similar systems have been installed. To facilitate oil production in Gulf Bohai, China, a model test of a SBS to investigate its motion and the forces under the action of regular waves has been carried out. Consulting the test results, this SBS “OFFSHORE 621” has been designed and launched. In this paper, the methods for determining the static characteristics of the multichain anchoring buoy system (MABS) and the measure for decreasing the chain force are given.
