Structural reassessments and life extension
Extend the service life of ageing offshore structures through our accurate structural reassessments and lifetime extension studies, leaving you confident in the current state and future performance of your asset.
Structural safety and stability
Most offshore structures in use today, have a projected service life of about 20 to 30 years. The improvement of drilling and well technology, which has allowed for extended oil recovery, has lead to an increased interest towards extending the service life of these structures.
We offer an accurate and well founded assessment of your structure with regards to fatigue life, new environmental conditions and subsidence to verify lifetime extension. We have an extensive track record with offshore load bearing structures, comprising design, verification and reassessment studies.
Work process and outcomes
In addition to evaluating the general condition of the asset, we also determine the effects of modifications, tie-in and corrosion - possibly revealing reserve capacities. When suited, this is carried out via inspection and non-destructive testing (NDT) monitoring, involving continuous monitoring of critical components or areas. The outcome of these analyses is either an inspection programme, a proposal for structural modifications or validation for extended operation.
Services may include:
