Oceaneering International Inc. said March 25 it has been awarded a FLNG vessel maintenance build and inspection contract by Golar LNG.
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 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,” Helen West, integrity director at Oceaneering, said. “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.
The comprehensive maintenance and inspection scope will be managed collaboratively from Oceaneering’s Norway and U.K. asset integrity hubs.
