AqualisBraemar LOC (ABL) has been awarded a Marine Warranty Survey (MWS) contract by BW Offshore to oversee maritime operations related to the construction, integration and installation of a large gas FPSO bound for the Australia.

As part of the works, ABL will provide 3e review and approval by parties of maritime operations for the following: hull construction in Korea, transport from Korea to Singapore, transport and integration of surface modules in Singapore, installation of STP buoy and moorings, and tug at field and offshore connection of the FPSO.

Due to the project’s extensive international supply chain, ABL’s Singapore office will be supported by the group’s extensive presence in Asia-Pacific, to support maritime operations at multiple project sites. This includes ABL’s support in Korea and Australia – the project’s other two main work sites, among others. ABL Singapore will also work closely with the group’s larger global footprint to facilitate on-site presence with local expertise for the many loading and transport operations of the long lead-time item project.

Alex Harrison, Group Managing Director for Energy Services, ABL, said: “Our global footprint will be critical in providing fast and efficient support to the multiple project sites. We are extremely pleased to have the opportunity to continue to develop our relationship with BW Offshore, following recent similar services provided on the Catcher development projects and the Umuroa decommissioning.

This award is in addition to ABL’s recent appointment as MWS for the transport and installation of subsea infrastructure for the same development project, ensuring continuity of delivery across the entire project.

Harrison added: “This project adds to ABL’s long-term experience in floating production, offshore Australia and elsewhere, having provided marine warranty services to many of the most important FPSO projects. and most complex in the world as well as a wide range of other specialists in operational engineering, planning and monitoring services for towing and tie-up operations.
