Axess provides specialist services across all aspects of structural life extension and brings a unique multi-disciplinary approach to engineering design, development, installation and integrity challenges.
The majority of the offshore oil and gas installations around the world have been operating for at least 25 years. Most assets are now approaching or operating beyond the original design intent. With the continued demand for oil and gas for the foreseeable future and the advances in technology, there is an increasing requirement to extend the operational life of these assets.
A fundamental part of any life extension process is the reinforcement and/or installation of new structural steel or piping in the platform jacket, such as:
- Jacket bracings and other structural steel members;
- Gangways, stairways, and platforms;
- Conductor guide frames, well slots;
- J- and I-tubes;
- Risers and caissons;
- Supports, clamps, and guides;
- Riser guards and boat fenders.
Bringing together 20+ years of experience and the latest know-how, Axess is in a unique position to provide cost-saving Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Installation (EPCI) solutions for offshore structural life extension. Our service portfolio covers the entire process – from inspection and asset integrity management, conceptual studies, detailed engineering design, fabrication and procurement to installation & construction.
