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.

The Right Data: Uniting Field Experience and Progressive Technology

On a project in a West African river delta, Welaptega proved the value of our insight and technology to a major oil company dealing with what appeared to be an incredibly high amount of corrosion on their mooring system. Welaptega CEO Tony Hall explains exactly what happened when we turned up on the job.

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”.

Welaptega Attends Oceanology International 2016 with Plenty of Room to Spare

On March 16, Welaptega visited the Oceanology International exhibition at the ExCeL Exhibition Centre in London. The exhibition is known for being a world-leading marine science and ocean technology event that attracts engineers, marine scientists, and visitors from the oil & gas industry by the droves.

The W-Team

/
In 2015 a crack inspection unit was sent offshore by their company for a complex subsea mooring inspection. These men promptly departed Canada to the Gulf of Thailand and onwards to the open seas off the southern Malaysian coast. Today, highly sought by operators across the globe, they survive as subsea inspectors extraordinaire. If you need a mooring inspection, if no one else can help, and if you contact them, maybe you can hire the W-Team.

A Message From the CEO

/
We are a small company, but we are a Global company. We have travelled to every corner of the world, so we get the big picture. We are not naive and we know better than most that affecting change is no easy task. It takes courage, it takes smarts, it takes caring, it takes perseverance – but I think above all we have come to realise the most powerful and resonant force is personal – how each of us chooses to live this life. The choices we make every day as individuals in our personal and professional lives – the choices that sustain our integrity, our respect, our honesty, and as importantly our empathy and humility.
