Welaptega Completes In-water Inspection on BP Skarv FPSO in Norway

03 October 2012

Welaptega Marine has completed a first with its in-water baseline survey on the mooring system of BPs Skarv floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel in the Northern North Sea, Norway.

The in-water inspection was completed after a dry baseline inspection conducted prior to installation in 2010.

Welaptega engineers deployed the Chain Measurement System (CMS), 3D modeling system and the Rope Measurement System (RMS) to complete a full survey of rope and chain moorings.

This is part of BPs on-going risk based integrity program to help the operator understand the condition of the mooring system over the lifetime of the FPSO.
