Offshore Life Snapshot: Diversity Edition

Cultural diversity is the norm in the offshore industry. This blog entry was written approximately 62 nautical miles off the Niger Delta of Nigeria on a vessel manned with personnel from Nigeria, Denmark, the Faroe Islands, South Africa, Scotland, Trinidad and Tobago, England, Canada, India, and the USA. This cultural diversity is compounded by the cultural diversity within each of the nations represented, but no more so than Nigeria. There are an estimated 521 languages and over 1150 dialects and ethnic groups within Nigeria.

Meet Govinda “G” Jagdeo, Project Engineer

Meet Govinda “G” Jagdeo. G is the newest member of the Welaptega Team and was hired on to fulfill the role of project engineer. He has been with us for just under two months now and his outgoing, optimistic and “can-do” attitude makes him a great addition to our team. Govinda is now offshore Australia working on one of our projects, but before he left we sat down with him to learn a bit more about who is really behind the man we call “G”.

Chain Measurement Methods: Pros and Cons

/
Chain wears, corrodes, and degrades. It is designed to deteriorate and intended to have an end of service life. But how do we track this? What methods are out there and what are the pros and cons of each? Understanding the current condition and deterioration rate of the entire mooring system is vital for cost-effective and safe operation of any floating asset - today we look at five different methods for measuring and inspecting one of the most common components of a mooring system, chain.
