  • 2008 UKCS: Specifying a drilling template, procured on an urgent basis to be compatible with a future template mated platform for Block 42.
  • 2008 Black Sea: Market survey for the installation of template mated platforms and pipe-lines in the Romanian sector.
  • 2006-10: Naval Architectural and Marine advice on the development of the Chestnut field using Sevan 300.

Floating Production

  • 2004 UKCS: Data room review for a client considering FPSO acquisition.
  • 2005 Norwegian Continental Shelf: Reviewing the design met-ocean report, updating the concept select report, basis of design, and hull statement of requirement for the Skarv FPSO.
  • 2006-10, UKCS: Providing client naval architecture, riser specialist and marine engineering input for the field layout, design, start-up, and on-going operation of the Chestnut field using the FPSO Hummingbird.
  • 2007 UKCS: Field layout study for the potential development of the Pilot Field using a Sevan 300 FPSO. The layout was to minimise subsea costs, whilst still enabling development drilling at surrounding locations with least disruption to tanker offtake.

  • 2009-11 Brazil: Expert witness input on a dispute over conversion costs between a FPF developer and their client oil company.
  • 2011-12 UKCS: Naval Architectural and Marine advice on a new concept semi-submersible.
  • 2012 to present UKCS: Naval Architectural and Marine advice on the conversion and upgrade of a semisubmersible floating production facility.
