Safe operations and high uptime is not only a requirement but an obligation for BW Offshore to clients and employees. Safety is our highest priority. We are relentless in our focus and commitment to class leading Health, Safety, Security, Environmental and Quality (HSSEQ) standards combined with class leading asset integrity management.
EXPERIENCE AND RESULTS
With an average uptime routinely at 99% over the past five years,BW Offshore exceeds client expectations but recognises internally that uptime must never be the priority over safe operations. More than 600,000 barrels of oil equivalent in daily volume is handled by 12 FPSOs in areas as diverse as West Africa, the South Atlantic off Brazil, the Gulf of Mexico, the US Gulf, the North Sea and South East and Far East Asia.
COMPETENT AND MOTIVATED WORKFORCE
BW Offshore’s operational performance requires a highly qualified, competent and dedicated technical support and logistics service staff. A strong network of onshore in-country offices ensuring operational support linking the units to shore. BW Offshore’s work ethic and culture, high level of experience and competence, global work opportunities and challenging class leading assignments requires the Group to be an attractive employer. Global recruitment centers and manning supply partners attract and select best in class candidates for fleet positions offshore. BW Offshore’s international pool of manpower allows for global rotation of talent based on required competence. There is high commitment to deployment of local content in countries where the Group operates with a heavy investment in training and development of local personnel.
OPERATIONS AND MAINTENANCE EXPERTISE
BW Offshore makes a solid partnering choice for clients wanting to outsource the technical competence to run and operate these complex units. With an existing operational network to leverage, the Group offers synergies that are difficult for a client to achieve on a stand-alone basis. Well established infrastructure, manning pools and supply chain networks are some immediate advantages to clients in addition to the familiarity with regulatory requirements, technical maintenance and life-cycle cost management offered by BW Offshore.
CAPTURING LIFE EXTENSION and redeployment OPPORTUNITIEs
Modifications of existing FPSOs insituto extend production or redeployment can unlock significant value for clients and BW Offshore. BW Offshore’s project and engineering expertise makes this possible. Working closely with client teams, BW Offshore has set up internal teams specifically for this purpose, combining competent project and operations staff from across the organisation. Managing modifications and upgrades on live producing units calls for specialised competence as safety related and economic risks multiply compared to projects run on site in a shipyard. Maintaining asset integrity in situ in such scenarios represents some of the most advanced technical execution challenges in the business.
