Maersk Oil has awarded a long-term contract to Lloyd’s Register for asset integrity services to support the development of Maersk Oil’s offshore operations.
Lloyd’s Register will provide support in areas of operational risk – change management, contractor management, inspection plans and reporting, asset optimisation, risk-based assessments and written schemes of examination.
Additional areas of technical expertise will also be provided on structural and pipeline integrity management systems, and corrosion monitoring.
“Ensuring consistent standards of integrity services across a network of high-value offshore assets is an increasingly complex task. Operators often face challenges that arise from differing operating regimes across different structures, work cultures and levels of asset maturity,” said James Drummond, VP Asset Integrity and Development Solutions from Lloyd’s Register.
Although a key focus of the contract is to mitigate major threats, Lloyd’s Register said its experts will also provide oversight in to the operation of each asset and address challenging exploration requirements and specific operational needs.
