Wednesday, Feb 27, 2013

Halifax, Nova Scotia _ Welaptega Marine, world leader in mooring integrity verification, has been awarded a contract to inspect the mooring system of the Nganhurra floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) facility operating in waters off the coast of North West Australia.

Welaptega has sent a team of specialist engineers to the facility to conduct a Progressive Inspection program using its Rope Measurement System (RMS) and 3D-modeling system (3DM).

“Our Progressive inspection philosophy is a guided examination of mooring systems that focuses on known problems and failure modes,” says Tony Hall, President and CEO of Welaptega Marine.

“When anomalies, wear or damage is identified, progressive inspection technologies are used to zero in on the problem and identify its characteristics and operational implications.”

Nganhurra FPSO is operated by Woodside Energy Ltd., and is the first oil production facility in the deep waters off the North West Cape.

The vessel operates in water depths of approximately 2000 feet and can process 100,000 barrels of oil per day. It has a storage capacity of one million barrels.

Welaptega Marine Ltd. is world leader in risk-based mooring integrity verification for the offshore oil and gas sector. The company develops and commercializes technologies for the inspection of moorings and other underwater assets.The word Welaptega is First Nations Mi’kmaq for “eagle eye.”
