With minimal training, almost anyone can use a caliper to take a measurement or watch a ROV monitor and claim to have inspected a mooring system. But how can you be sure of the accuracy of these measurements? Was the chain cleaned properly? Was the tool placed correctly and in the appropriate location?

Thanks to an increased focus on efficiency and a continued commitment to reliability and meaningful data, Welaptega has ridden the wave of change brought on by the recent industry downturn and further solidified its position as the industry leader in in-situ mooring inspections. After a busy Summer 2018 that saw us inspection more than ten mooring systems of permanently-moored floating assets, we wanted to take a moment to let you know what we’ve been up to.

A permanently moored Floating Production Unit has a complex mooring system with many constraints. A wide variety of factors must be considered to try to predict the future and account for degradation of the system.

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.

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.

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.
