Anode Rigging

The Challenge

There is an increasing demand for FPSOs to extend their lives in the field. This raises challenges in how to identify the requirements, budget and plan the work and implement it safely and with minimum production disruption.

The Solution

EM&I has extensive experience of planning and implementing Life Extension projects for operational FPSOs and can provide a tailored solution to suit your specific needs.

A typical project scope would include development of a Life Extension Workscope, Detailed Implementation Plans and Budgets, Engineering and Compliance Support, Corrosion Protection, Project Management and Site Implementation.

The Benefits

The principle benefit of being able to carry out Life Extensions on site are that the asset continues to produce revenue.

EM&I have developed specialised methods with a successful track record with Operators and Classification Societies in delivering Life Extensions safely and with minimum operational disruption.

EM&I's proprietary methods and equipment include IGLOO automated hot-work habitats, specialised access solutions for fabric maintenance and multiskilled teams to reduce POB.
