BMT ARGOSS (BMT), a subsidiary of BMT Group, has announced the award of a number of metocean assessments for Tullow Oil Plc., including comprehensive overviews of meteorological and oceanographic conditions in West Africa and South America, to help support the company’s offshore oil and gas exploration and operating activities.
Supporting Tullow Oil’s offshore activities
Colleen Abell, Senior Environmental Remote Sensing & GIS Specialist at Tullow Oil Plc comments: “Tullow have been engaging with BMT ARGOSS with regards to their metocean and regional reporting capabilities. We are currently evaluating available products and services primarily in support of the development of the BMT ARGOSS Metocean Portal - the launch of which is anticipated to have the potential to support Tullow’s offshore projects and activities.”
Using in house, state-of-the-art, numerical modelling techniques and analytical tools BMT’s experts are working closely with Tullow Oil to generate a range of spatial and temporal wind, wave and current data products, thereby aiding interpretation of the metocean climate in the two target regions.
Environmental understanding critical for maintaining offshore structure integrity
Martin Williams, Senior Metocean Advisor at BMT ARGOSS explains: “Understanding the impact of the physical environment on an offshore structure is critical to safety and efficiency in all phases of the structure’s lifecycle. BMT’s work helps Tullow plan effectively and minimise the risks to personnel, the environment and the company.”
BMT is also collaborating with Tullow Oil on the development of an online metocean and weather forecasting portal which, once fully developed, will provide key engineers and planners with secure and rapid access to all Tullow’s metocean information via a single gateway.
