Offshore Services

Our Experience

Our company and our engineers have a great deal of process design, operations, and process safety experience within many types of oil, gas, and refining operations. While our direct offshore experience is limited, the fundamentals of processing materials onshore or offshore is the same, however, just like many other markets, offshore processes have their own set of special considerations (safety features, space constraints, weight issues, etc.). Because our company is only focused on chemical process engineering, our process engineers work in a wide variety of markets and processes, each having its own set of special requirements that a design engineer must consider and conform to. This adaptability means we can easily pick up on the particular requirements of any given platform operation or Floating Production, Storage, and Offloading facilities (an FPSOs) and provide process design services that get the job done and comply with these requirements.
