Offshore studies

Technical assessments, engineering feasibility studies and design audits - based on experience in the offshore industry were undertaken for clients such as BP, DTI and Petrobras and included:

  • preparation of ISO-based Guidance documents for subsea projects for a major operator
  • review of long-distance pipeline capability (Technical/Commercial)
  • integrity analysis and 10-year IRM programme for a nationally-important oil trunkline
  • preparation of operating procedures for terminals
  • technical management of J.I.Ps for development of subsea production systems
  • preparation of design premise for innovative coil tubing application
  • techno-economic assessment for significant financial investment
  • seismic analysis & design assessment
  • dynamic analysis
  • weld strength assessment
  • simulation of installation of large diameter outfall pipes
  • offshore pipeline and riser system design and installation.

Zentech also has expertise in the analysis of riser, umbilical and mooring systems and the design and installation of offshore pipelines. This experience has been gained through installation and operational engineering in the North Sea, Gulf of Mexico, West Africa and Brazil and includes work at detailed levels (e.g. pressure rating), component levels (e.g. integrity) and trunkline levels (e.g. feasibility / resourcing).

Engineering projects have received approval from regulatory agencies, including DnV, ABS, Lloyd's, NPD and Rolls-Royce.
