Tullow awards Welaptega MFPA Contract



Welaptega Marine Ltd. has secured a contract with Tullow Oil for work in the Jubliee field in Q1 2014.  Welaptega, in alliance with BPP-TECH, will be completing a Moorings Fitness for Purpose Assessment (MFPA) which is fully compliant with the Floating Unit Mooring Assessment (FUMA) requirements of insurance underwriters, recently published by the Joint Rig Committee.  Tullow Oil has embraced FUMA guidance requiring a risk based engineering assessment of a mooring system’s fitness for purpose, including quantifiable inspection data combined with an analysis of mooring design and operating conditions to produce confident assessments of mooring strength, fatigue, and other operating risks.

A robust understanding of risks to their mooring system enables Tullow Oil to more safely and appropriately operate the Jubilee field, striving toward uninterrupted operation and minimized risks to personnel, equipment, and the environment.
