The Technip MMHE JV contracted BMT in 2015 to provide the Marine Instrumentation System and Marine Advisory System (MIS/MAS) for the Shell Malikai TLP.
The MIS/MAS provided by BMT is an integrated system using state-of-the-art sensors to make vessel, marine and environmental data available to the marine systems operators in an easy to understand format, enabling the operations team to work safely.
BMT brought valuable experience to this project, having previously provided a similar system to the Cascade Chinook field development, the first deep water FPSO in the US Gulf of Mexico. The company has also been engaged in many other similar projects involving various combinations of mooring line monitoring systems, acoustic positioning, subsea motions measurement and integrated monitoring packages.
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 line monitoring.
BMT has been providing engineering support to Muhibbah Engineering Bhd for the LNG Regasification Facilities Project, commencing from FEED for the LNG regas unit and the Island berth.
BMT were approached by Technip MHB Hull Engineering (TMH) in 2012/13 during the design phase to provide wind tunnel testing to support the structural design of the TLP and the offshore DTU operations.
Our combined experience in hazard assessment and marine safety enabled the accurate identification of the relative risk of various transit routes.
