Houston, Texas May 7, 2013 – Welaptega Marine, world leader in Moorings Fitness for Purpose Assessments (MFPA), is at OTC Houston this week to deliver a paper on life extension of mooring systems on offshore floating production facilities.
The paper, entitled “Mooring System Life Extension using Subsea Inspection Technologies,” will be presented by Welaptega Business Development Lead Engineer Tyler de Gier who co-authored the paper with business development engineer Scott Allan and CEO Tony Hall.
The paper covers aging infrastructure, mooring failures, and risk based inspection techniques.
Life extension requires progressive inspection strategy
Determining the potential for life extension of an asset requires a comprehensive understanding of the current state of a mooring system. This is achieved by executing a well-planned inspection strategy followed by engineering analysis of quantifiable results.
The paper will discuss Welaptega’s Progressive Inspection techniques using 3D and 2D imaging technologies and dimensional technologies for measuring chain and rope mooring systems. Progressive Inspection identifies potential risks on moorings and underwater assets and then takes action to quantify anomalies to gauge their seriousness.
Advances in mooring systems
The Welaptega paper will be presented as part of an OTC technical session on Advances in Mooring Systems. The session will take Place on Thursday May 9, 9:30-noon in Room 600 of the Reliant Park Conference Centre. The session will be be chaired by Tomasz Matlak of Schlumberger and Subir Bhattacharjee of ExxonMobil Production.
Welaptega is part of the Nova Scotia OTC delegation lead by the Maritime Energy Association and the Nova Scotia Department of Energy.
Founded in 1969, the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) is the world’s foremost event for the development of offshore resources in the fields of drilling, exploration, production, and environmental protection.// Learn More
