Design of subsea production systems, wellhead protection structures, manifolds, subsea storage systems, pipeline protection, templates, habitats, risers, riser towers, clamps and subsea repair systems. Re-analysis of platforms for additional risers and conductors.
Design and specification of pipelines and flowlines, pipeline anchors and pull-ins. Design of scour and erosion protection systems. Design and specification of pipeline securing systems and structural/mooring anchors.
Development and design of installation procedures, pigging systems, pipeline tie-ins, pipe repair techniques.
Marginal field development studies, planning and assessment. Review of technical options and available facilities for the economic development of marginal fields in both shallow and deep water applications.
Review of re-use of existing production facilities, including condition and refurbishment/re-equipping reports and costing.
Greenfield studies covering all aspects of field development including reservoir engineering and drilling.
Special focus on solutions for stranded assets and short field life.
Hydrodynamic analysis of fixed and floating structures in random sea states including ship-shaped bodies, floating and seabed caissons and production facilities, tension leg, compliant moored and fixed structures using Ansys Aqwa.
Assessment of the behaviour of multiple linked floating structures. Calculation of mooring and anchoring forces, accelerations, structural natural frequencies, damping, etc. Analysis and assessment of heave and motion compensation systems for personnel transfer, conductor and riser handling, subsea lifting, etc.
Hydrodynamic analysis results (i.e., motions, forces and pressures) can be translated to ANSYS, ASAS or generically defined FE models for subsequent structural analysis.
Design of buoy systems for any special-purpose application (civil, policing or military). We are experts in buoy system design from 25 metres to 3000 metres and can incorporate any desired unique functions. Recent studies have, for example, included deep water continuous mineral recovery and monitoring from subsea smokers (vents).
Our special expertise in this area is backed by our innovative design and construction of subsea field control, pipeline valve control, flaring, water injection, oil or gas production, data acquisition, tanker loading/unloading and mooring buoy systems.
Ocean’s experience is unique and we are the world leaders in this technology. We lead where others follow.
We've been there, We've done It!
Design and specification of mooring and product transfer systems for tankers, barges, supply boats, and other vessels.
Specification of swivels, hoses, ropes, anchors, conventional and suction piles, gravity anchors, etc.
Replenishment / Fuelling-at-sea systems (RAS/FAS) design to international standards
Environmental Impact Assessments (EIA) can be conducted for major projects including a review of relevant regulations/policies for any location. These studies typically involve assessments of existing conditions to minimise negative impact of any project on the environment, also liaison between clients, various agencies and approval bodies, consultation with relevant stake-holders, together with recommendations for mitigation and management leading to the Environmental Statement. Projects have included assessments related to the installation of offshore installations and infrastructure.
Structural analysis or re-analysis of complex structures using finite element (FE) analysis programs including STAAD-Pro, Ansys, Nastran, etc. Structures include structural framing, trusses, bridges, elevated platforms, tower structures (lattice and tubular), etc. Code compliance to Eurocodes, DNV, API, AISC, etc. Analysis includes dynamic analysis, natural frequencies, structural damping. Structural fatigue and material compatibility can also be considered.
The design and specification of complex control and monitoring systems for a wide range of duties, including underwater control and data collection.
Ocean's expertise includes both hardware and software development encompassing traditional and modern control techniques alike. The interface between control and power systems is an area of particular expertise. Telemetry and telecommunications systems in support of control and monitoring applications are regularly designed and supplied
Ocean have a proven record in the design, engineering and specification of autonomous offshore facilities for oil and gas production and other functionality. Our techniques were developed during our association with British Aerospace (then BAC) and are based on aircraft industry rigorous analysis techniques. We can design production systems for remote operation with high availability and reliability using system upgrade, duplication/triplication of key systems, high operational cleanliness, remote diagnostics, path diversity, etc. Achievable operational availabilities can be greater than 99 .95%.
Design and construction of marine structures and facilities including piled jetties, out-falls, dry docks etc, structural inspection (including seabed) and repair of marine structures. Design of loading/fluid transfer systems, fender and energy absorption systems, repair and extension of dock systems, lock gates, lifting facilities, quayside strengthening and stabilisation, etc.
Passive and active fire protection systems, structural safety, radiation studies, deluge systems, platform escape methods, hazardous area classification, hazard and operability studies, failure mode and effect analysis (FEMA), ship impact, dropped object and safety case support.
Research and Development is conducted for in-house projects and for external clients.
Typical projects include seabed oil storage, multiphase pumping and metering, underwater cleaning, standardised product design, flow control devices, specialised control systems, alternative energy sources etc.
Development projects have included scaled tests at associated university facilities for a wide variety of differing physical parameters.
We are original thinkers with a practical cost sensitive approach to advanced technical challenges.
