Life Extension for Continued Service of Floating Facilities
Luiz Feijo, Director Offshore Projects; American Bureau of Shipping - ABS
Floating facilities are designed based on a specifed design life. New technology for reserves recovery and new discoveries in
the vicinity of an existing facility are making it fnancially attractive to continue operating aging units. As a result, operators are
looking for ways to safely operate their aging assets and in many cases are seeking life extension for continued service. The life
extension process for continued service is challenging and must be applied to verify that the unit will be able to safely operate
beyond its design life.
Feijo joined ABS in 2001 as Project Manager and held different positions related to project management and business development. Feijo received
a Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering from Rio de Janeiro State University in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and he is a certifed Project Management
Professional (PMP) by the Project Management Institute (PMI).
Inspecting the Impossible
Tim Frame, Facilities Engineering Advisor; Eni Petroleum
Critical mooring system equipment in foating structures may be thousands of feet below the surface of the ocean, covered by
marine growth or silt and in a location where it cannot be easily observed due to ancillary equipment. This presentation will
discuss long-term lifetime extension and inspecting and analyzing tendon fex bearings.
Tim Frame is facilities engineering advisor for Eni Petroleum. He has been with the company for 5 years. During this time, he was tasked with gaining a
long term life extension for two TLPs in the Gulf of Mexico. Degradation was found within the mooring system that required the further inspections of
previously thought impossible areas. He and his team developed a method of inspection and gained meaningful data of these critical systems.
Integrity Management for the Life Cycle of an Asset
Jacob Gros, Lead Operations Representative; Chevron
For Chevron’s Deepwater Major Capital Projects, integrity management for the life of an asset starts in the early phases of the
major capital project through the life cycle of implementing and executing the plan. Early phase planning and development is
important to ensure a robust plan is in place through the asset life cycle. This presentation will discuss the early phase planning,
timing, and lessons learned to developing a robust integrity management plan.
Jacob Gros is currently a Lead Operations Representative for Chevron’s Deepwater Exploration and Projects Business Unit in Houston, Texas. Jacob has
been with Chevron for 13 years and in the industry for 16 years. He has held positions in base operations and major capital projects through his career.
