Pre-FEED and FEED Studies

We conduct studies to:

  • assess floater selection, such as FPSO, FSO, SemiSub or TLP
  • consider whether newbuild, conversion or re-use is most appropriate
  • review emissions and efficiency to design and engineer reductions
  • assess station keeping selection, for example dynamic positioning, turret mooring, spread mooring and yoke
  • review F(P)SO offloading solutions: eg. tandem, CALM buoy or pipeline
  • assess riser solutions such as riser towers, flexible hoses and steel catenary risers
  • consider operational considerations for environmental threats such as hurricane, typhoon and ice
  • consider constructability & local content

We execute front end engineering for your floater design, covering:

  • hull lay-out
  • general arrangements & tank plans
  • stability
  • scantlings & structural design
  • topside & mooring integration
  • mooring design covering mooring lay-out and set-up
  • project planning for execution stage, including yard selection & contract negotiations.
