Oceaneering International, Inc. (Oceaneering) has been awarded a contract by Golar LNG for a FLNG vessel maintenance build, and inspection and maintenance program.
The scope of work – commencing in January 2020 – will include an asset register build, a full maintenance build program, a risk-based inspection assessment, and the development of a corrosion management strategy. Oceaneering will add valuable insight through thorough forensic maintenance and inspection planning, detailed technical reviews, and the identification of schedule improvements. This will be integrated into a single management system to ensure a holistic, cohesive approach for optimal asset reliability.
“FLNG offers an economical alternative to large, onshore LNG assets, but these benefits can only be attained if production uptime and reliability are optimized,” said Helen West, Integrity Director at Oceaneering. “By delivering a fully integrated maintenance and risk-based integrity program that determines optimized inspection activities, we ensure enhanced reliability; future proofing it with rightsized maintenance plans and efficient inspection enactment.
“We’re thrilled to be working with Golar, a new customer that shares our forward-thinking views around integrity management. In partnership, we aim to showcase a new and improved way of delivering maintenance management and inspection services to the global LNG market.”
The comprehensive maintenance and inspection scope will be managed collaboratively from Oceaneering’s Norway and U.K. asset integrity hubs.
Oceaneering’s asset integrity business delivers integrity, analytics, maintenance and risk management, conventional and advanced non-destructive testing (NDT) and specialist inspection solutions. The team includes 2,100 technically focused people, servicing customers from 24 global locations.
