Following a long-term partnership with a major Norwegian FPSO operator for an FPSO in New Zealand, EM&I has now received another order from a major Japanese FPSO operator for an FPSO based offshore New Zealand.
This is initially for tank inspection during which time EM&I’s ‘NoMan®’ robotic tank inspections that avoid confined space entry and working at height while increasing tank availability and achieving a 90% reduction in the man hours normally required. If the tank inspection reveals a requirement for repairs, EM&I will be invited to undertake these.
The contract objectives include development of a long term MSA (Master Service Agreement) to include topsides and other specialist services such as ODIN® (diverless UWILDs), ANALYSE™ (pressure system methods that reduce scope safely by 50%), ExPert™ (non-intrusive Ex equipment inspection, HullGuard® (diverless ICCP systems) & LORIS™ (diverless mooring and riser inspection system).
Having worked on hundreds of offshore assets during the 35 years they have been in the asset integrity management business, EM&I have delivered a number of long-term contracts for oil majors and large lease companies.
EM&I’s leadership of the successful HITS (Hull Inspection Techniques and Strategies) JIP (Joint Industry Project) has led the way in both robotic & digital innovations including diverless hull and valve surveys and repairs.
Commenting on this latest contract, Pat Lawless (CEO) of the EM&I Group – in the international asset integrity specialists – stated: “We are delighted to be entrusted with another important contract offshore New Zealand with a major FPSO operator who has recognised the benefits of our methods and our long track record of delivering an excellent service.”
