The project involved the world’s deepest moored producing FPSO facility and the first use of Steel Lazy-Wave Risers (SLWR) with a disconnectable FPSO in a harsh environment.
The customer approached BMT with the requirement for an Integrated Marine Monitoring System (IMMS) to closely monitor the asset during pull-in, operation and disconnect.
Multiple subsystems including environmental and facility monitoring, mooring line monitoring, and subsea acoustic monitoring of the disconnectable BTM were required to allow the offshore operations personnel to operate with precise information to enhance safe working within prescribed operational limits, specifically to:
BMT’s Integrated Marine Monitoring System (IMMS) provided real-time information of the environmental conditions and motions experienced on the FPSO as well as the buoyant turret mooring position and line monitoring during pull-in, operation and buoy release.
BMT was contracted 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 readily available to the marine systems operators in an easy to understand format, enabling operations teams to work safely.
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.
Our combined experience in hazard assessment and marine safety enabled the accurate identification of the relative risk of various transit routes.
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.
