Lloyd’s Register Energy enhances its structural integrity capability off the northern edge of South America
To meet the growing demands by operators for greater operational efficiency and public confidence in the integrity of offshore and onshore oil and gas structures, Lloyd’s Register Energy is increasing its structural engineering capabilities to support operators involved in the exploration of Trinidad and Tobago’s oil and gas acreage.
Lloyd’s Register Energy’s decision to increase its asset integrity portfolio of services in the region complements the existing services and technical expertise it delivers, and its close association to major oil and gas operators and local service companies for more than 10 years.
Steve Masson, Asset Integrity Services Operations Manager at Lloyd’s Register Energy for Trinidad & Tobago, said: “Asset integrity management is fast becoming a requirement in Trinidad and Tobago, as companies working in upstream, mid-stream and downstream are realising the benefits of a proactive approach to risk reduction strategies and ensuring engineering integrity as a whole. They’re actively looking for ways to extend the life of their assets safely and cost effectively.”
The leading compliance, integrity and specialist risk consultancy services group recently won a substantial contract in the country. It will provide integrity engineering support on offshore projects for a leading operator; delivering risk reduction strategies, ensuring engineering integrity, cost effective design and safe operation.
The company is increasing the provision of its leading asset management (ISO55001:2014) capability across upstream, mid-stream and downstream sectors, including its pipeline integrity management, pressure systems integrity consultancy, Turn-A-Round support and corrosion engineering support. In addition its technical engineering expertise is being expanded to cover fitness for service, root cause failure analysis, risk-based inspection and NACE/API inspections.
Globally, Lloyd’s Register Energy has extensive experience in managing the structural integrity of subsea, topside, floating and onshore structures in line with legislation governing UK offshore installations which are used as a ‘recognised’ benchmark, as well as local country requirements, to ensure all structural integrity practices are compliant and safe.
