Moorsure signed up for new offshore import terminal

MOORSURE SIGNED UP FOR NEW OFFSHORE IMPORT TERMINAL​

We are pleased to announce that Moorsure has received a Letter of Intent (LOI) to provide a new offshore import terminal in West Africa.

Moorsure had previously undertaken work on concept studies of the import and export systems for the refinery to select the most CAPEX efficient solution when balanced with the requirements of various project stakeholders. These Pre-FEED studies investigated more than 10 options (with many more not making the shortlist) and incorporated analysis of site selection criteria, terminal utilisation, pipeline and pump sizing, as well as other studies such as optimal pump rates and mooring designs. The concept selection also considered CAPEX, technical risk and complexity, cash flow, and expandability for future project phases.

Moorsure shall now commence the subsequent project phases including detailed engineering, procurement and installation oversight of two mooring systems, two pipeline systems and a facility wide telemetry and control system.

Offspring offers Manuli single and double carcass floating marine and submarine hoses, dock hoses and long length conduit hoses for offloading at SPM and CBM terminals and shuttle tankers.

Manuli hoses are produced under the OCIMF GMPHOM 2009 guidelines and ISO 9001 industrial standards, with hose performance certified by class.

Enhanced Terminal Monitoring

Offshore Ops’ system provides ‘live’ data on a wide range of operational and environmental factors, significantly reducing risk and enhancing mooring and offloading safety and performance.

OIL’s Offshore Ops telemetry system has been successfully deployed at multiple SPM buoy locations globally, including Middle East, South Africa, South East Asia and North America.

Enhance Mooring & Offloading Operations with OIL at SLOM 2018

Enhance Mooring & Offloading Operations with OIL at SLOM 2018

Offspring International (OIL) will be exhibiting SLOM 2018 in Quito, Ecuador, 3-5 October. OIL has co-authored three papers for the conference with Offspring’s managing director Dave Rowley presenting ‘Case Study of Telemetry System for LOOP Terminal in the US GOM’, sales and marketing director Mark Brooks presenting ‘Discussion on Rope Constructions, Materials and what it means in the real world’, and regional sales manager Egbert Wibbelink presenting ‘Continuous Long Length Rubber Hoses’.

The Louisiana Offshore Oil Port (LOOP) is one of the busiest terminals in North America and the only deepwater oil port in the USA. OIL’s Offshore Ops telemetry system has successfully operated on one of the SALM buoys at the LOOP terminal for over a year and is now being deployed to all the buoys. Offshore Ops’ fully OCIMF SMOG 2015 compliant Integrated Terminal Management System provides ‘live’ data on a wide range of operational and environmental factors, significantly reducing risk and enhancing mooring and offloading safety and performance.

SPM Ropes in the Real World

Single Point Mooring rope performance is determined by several factors. Offspring’s presentation looks at various rope constructions and examines the impact of their characteristics as well as looking at the effect of material selection. Offspring has over 25 years’ experience in selecting the best combination of construction and material for SPM operations and offshore environment.

Benefits of Rubber Hoses

Continuous long length hoses present many opportunities to the offshore industry for a range of applications including extended well testing, early field development and use in mid-water transfer systems. Rubber hoses are lighter, easier to handle and quicker to install than steel pipes resulting in a lower total cost of ownership.

Offspring International expands mooring chain capability

Offspring International expands mooring chain capability

Offspring International (OIL) has extended its range of chain to offer larger offshore grade chain and full project management services for offshore mooring systems. Offshore mooring projects previously handled by OIL’s sister company, Sanmar Chain, will now be managed by Offspring International.

Offspring customers will experience the same high level of service with OIL continuing to work closely with clients to consider the overall project picture, rather than the scope of chain supply in isolation. Offspring achieve this by incorporating the highest project management skills and overseeing manufacturing standards throughout the entire project process, from contract review, through manufacturing to testing, inspection, certification, final dispatch and documentation.

Sales and marketing director for OIL, Mark Brooks, comments “Combining the resources of Offspring International and Sanmar Chain will serve customer’s projects more effectively. OIL has over 25 years of offshore mooring experience and a proven track record; working with Sanmar’s existing team in China will ensure continued success”.

 

Offshore Chain

Offspring International offers stud link and studless mooring chains up to and including 187mm diameter in all offshore grades: R3, R3S, R4, R4S, and R5. Offspring staff have experience in managing chain projects including Spar platforms, CALM buoys, MODUs, and all mooring configurations for FPSOs, FSOs, FPUs etc.

Sanmar Chain International had a successful track record in supplying chain to offshore projects in the Gulf of Mexico, South America, West Africa, South East Asia, Australia, Europe, Middle East, India and the Mediterranean.

Record Year for Offspring SPM Ropes

Record Year for Offspring SPM Ropes

Offspring International (OIL) achieved a record year for single point mooring (SPM) ropes in 2017, confirming its position as the world’s leading supplier of SPM hawsers. OIL has also extended its exclusive worldwide agency agreement for SPM ropes with Lankhorst Euronete Portugal.

“New projects in a number of fields, as well as the continuation of our partnership with Lankhorst, resulted in a very successful 2017. The combination of Lankhorst’s high quality hawsers and Offspring’s dedicated support provides terminal operators with excellent system service life,” commented OIL sales and marketing director, Mark Brooks.

Optimising Rope Service Life

Rope performance and service life are dependant on the local environmental and operational conditions. To optimise a rope’s service life operators should observe the specific mooring conditions experienced and develop dedicated inspection, handling and maintenance procedures in response to the mooring environment and operating practices.

Utilising Lankhorst’s dedicated rope testing facility in Portugal, Offspring International can assist operators to assess the performance of their single point mooring ropes; this enables moorings to be operated safely whilst maximising service life and minimising cost-of-ownership.
