BMT providing deepwater metocean analysis for Asia/Pacific projects

Offshore staff

FAREHAM, UK – BMT ARGOSS, a subsidiary of BMT Group, has won various metocean study contracts for offshore projects in Southeast Asia.

These include work for Petronas Carigali related to offshore development east of Sabah in Malaysia.

BMT Argoss operates regional wind and wave models and can provide localized hindcast data sets. Recently it collaborated with sister company, BMT WBM to undertake nested hydrodynamic modeling in the Makassar Strait offshore Indonesia.

The company is providing its services to support engineering design, planning, and installation phases of offshore production facilities including jacket and floating structures, and associated pipelines back to shore. 

Robin Stephens, manager of the Metocean Group, said: “As oil and gas companies look towards much deeper water provinces such as the Makassar Strait and areas close to Vietnam for offshore production, metocean studies become even more important due to the harsher environmental conditions…

“It’s all about reducing the uncertainty in the basis of design – we’re working in a very erratic environment and we need to inform the design engineers of pragmatic values for extreme loadings and that’s a balance between economy and safety.”
