High Standards For the High-Performing Energy Industry

Our work with the pan-industry FPSO (Floating Production, Storage and Offloading) Forum has been focused on mooring integrity and the management of mooring systems. A decade ago, we were a founding member of the FPSO committee that worked toward setting guidelines related to mooring: since then, these guidelines have been adopted by UK Oil and Gas, and is being applied around the world by operators.

Welaptega’s 3DM system uses subsea stills cameras to collect images for post-processing into 3D models so photo quality is essential to produce accurate, high resolution models. This requirement along with the desire for more immediate results drives the need for a specialized ROV-deployed camera system.
