Lloyd’s Register has received a pipeline inspection contract from Bumi Armada Berhad for the Armada Olombendo FPSO.
Under the terms of the agreement, Bumi Armada receives access to Lloyd’s Register’s risk-based inspection services and technical software which will help to develop quantifiable risk profiles. These profiles will provide critical knowledge and insight for Bumi Armada Berhad’s management team on how best to approach short and long term CAPEX/OPEX decisions.
“We are delighted to be working with Bumi Armada Berhad on this initiative,” Dirk-Jan Schuld, Area Manager Operations for Lloyd’s Register’s Asset Integrity Services, said. “The scope of work includes corrosion risk assessment and risk-based inspection expertise for the hull, topside structures, pipelines, turret, mooring system, pipework and pressure safety valves. The work will be carried out from our Malaysia and Aberdeen offices over a period of six months.”
The Armada Olombendo FPSO will be positioned at the southeast end of the Cabaça North field and northeast of the Cabaça South East fields off the coast of Angola.
