Building on our experience of risk assessment and actual loss scenarios, we have developed in-house software, procedures and other risk reduction tools, particularly for risks relating to mobile offshore drilling units.
Our training courses provide real-time simulation of rig preloading and punch-through scenarios, offering a unique opportunity for training rig movers and other offshore oil and gas personnel. Using our 'Virtual Preloading Simulator' participants can replicate fully the activities of going on location, jacking-up to minimum air gap and starting the preload process. We can model specific rigs and apply differing scenarios for environmental conditions such as subsea soil and weather. This dynamic combination allows you to simulate the preloading of a rig going on to a specific location, as well as providing generic training in preloading jack-ups.
MODUSA is our audit programme, providing a worldwide safety standard for mobile offshore drilling units. It is designed to ensure the risk you are assuming meets industry standards. Modusa facilitates analysis of the physical condition of a unit and assesses the current operational policies and procedures. It then presents options for reducing risk and for third party verification of minimum safety standards during the critical phases of moving and siting.
One of the key systems we use for assessing and developing appropriate weather routing and criteria for ocean tows, heavy lift operations and installations of major facilities. Using computerised analysis methods, databases, and hydrodynamics, SafeTrans is an integrated design tool covering all types of marine transportations, tow-outs and installations. It also provides guidance for critical operations such as pipe-laying, platform removal and drilling.
AMC exclusively provides us with software for site assessment of mobile drilling units in accordance with SNAME 5.5A and ISO-19905.
