Greater control, greater safety, greater operability, greater maintainability and lower through life cost: unlocking these opportunities demands a detailed understanding of the interaction between your offshore asset and the forces affecting it. We combine our knowledge of metocean conditions, hydrology and the marine environment with structural understanding and sophisticated monitoring to help customers access these gains.
As partners, we support and supplement the technical teams within the offshore arena, working with renewable energy companies, oil and gas industry majors, independents, national oil companies and their associated engineering contractors. We are committed to building domestic sustainability by knowledge transfer.
We also apply our knowledge of assets in the offshore environment to the growing aquaculture industry and the international ship surveying market.
As an international group, BMT has a presence in over 35 countries. Our data sets cover all of the world’s ocean basins. We have consulted on and provided services to over 120 offshore platforms from the Gulf of Mexico and Brazil to the UK’s North Sea, West Africa and South East Asia.
Accurately matching your drilling unit to your environment is key to managing cost and safety.
We combine wind, wave and current data with simulation and financial assessment tools to de-risk decisions on the safety, logistics and economics of a drilling programme, advising on all factors that can influence the viability of a successful reservoir appraisal and its future development.
Supporting smarter decisions throughout Preliminary Design (Pre-FEED) to Detailed Design (FEED).
Safety and operational optimisation from an accurate, site-specific view.
Ensuring safety and optimal working assets, for the extent of their full life, is critical and essential to maintain production and maximise the exploration of an oil and gas field.
As thinking on decommissioning strategies evolve, we help operators assess their options and spell out the environmental consequences. We run comparative assessment workshops to help you navigate these complex decisions.
I began my career in naval architecture 23 years ago designing commercial vessels. In that environment design and engineering decisions on form, features and layout can invariably be made based on a balance of technical and commercial factors measured against construction cost, overall operability, revenue earning capability etc. In general, all these factors can be quantitative and finite.
Machinery typically have all kind of moving parts and particularly gears and bearings. All the parts are exposed to wear and tear; thus, they could fail if not maintained properly or replaced on time.
BMT's Greg Fisk recently spoke with James McMahon, CEO of The Climate Service (TCS), a U.S based climate analytics company, about the uptake of climate considerations by the financial sector.
Alan Stokes in an Executive Director of the Australian Coastal Councils Association (ACCA). The ACCA is an organisation of coastal councils from all states around Australia which has been set up as an incorporated association with the role to represent the interests of coastal councils at a national level.
It is increasingly recognised by defence forces around the world that climate change poses an increasing threat to peace and security in the world. Its impacts can undermine livelihoods, increase involuntary migration, and reduce the ability of states to provide security.
Climate change is happening around the world. Ocean heatwaves cause coral bleaching events which can occur at a large scale and result in massive die-off (bleaching) of corals.
BMT was approached with the requirement for an Integrated Marine Monitoring System (IMMS) to closely monitor the FPSO Turritella during pull-in, operation and disconnect, providing real-time information of the environmental conditions and motions experienced on the FPSO as well as the buoyant turret mooring position and mooring line monitoring.
BP came to BMT with a requirement for a real-time information system on the relative position and motion of the Glen Lyon FPSO together with the magnitude and direction of environmental forces in the extremely harsh waters west of Shetland, to ensure operations personnel were working safely within prescribed operational limits.
