Welaptega Tackles Issue of Aging Offshore Infrastructure

Tony Hall, CEO of Welaptega Marine, will be a featured speaker at a seminar of asset integrity experts examining the impact of aging infrastructure in the offshore oil and gas sector.

The seminar, titled "Insuring aging facilities for better or worse", is sponsored by the London-based Oil Petrochemical and Energy Risk Association (OPERA).

Participants will explore the challenges of offshore facilities being considered for subsea tie backs and gathering operations.

"We have to know that these aging assets are still fit for purpose," said Hall, who will speak on the topic of mooring integrity verification on offshore assets. "It’s a balance between safety, profitability and risk."

Seminar topics include:

  • Contribution of age factors to loss profile
  • Regional aspects of aging
  • Life extensions

Other speakers include Szen Ong of BPP-Tech who will speak on aging subsea assets – riser and umbilical case studies, and Judith Hackitt CBE of the UK HSE who will deliver the keynote address.

The day-long seminar will be held on 30 October 2012 at the Swiss Re Lecture Theatre in London.
