Welaptega Completes In-Water Inspection on BP Skarv FPSO in Norway

Welaptega Marine has completed a first with its in-water baseline survey on the mooring system of BP’s Skarv floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel in the northern North Sea, Norway.

The in-water inspection was completed after a dry baseline inspection conducted prior to installation in 2010.

Welaptega engineers deployed the chain measurement system (CMS), 3D modeling system and the rope measurement system (RMS) to complete a full survey of rope and chain moorings.

This is part of BPs on-going risk based integrity programme to help the operator understand the condition of the mooring system over the lifetime of the FPSO.
