Risk is inherent in engineering design and operations. Understanding the level of risk at various stages of a development is paramount to maintaining costs at acceptable levels while ensuring safety standards are upheld. BMT, an international company with a reputation for engineering excellence, has delivered solutions to help clients minimise capital expenditure and optimise designs all over the world. As a specialist in the fields of computational fluid dynamics (CFD), process risk and safety, supply chain modelling, structural monitoring and metocean forecasting and consulting, we combine quality data generated from accurate modelling techniques and measurements with industry expertise and regional knowledge, to provide an assessment of risk to support oil and gas developments. With over 10 years’ experience in the Middle East, BMT’s focus at ADIPEC will be on how risk can be mitigated in the region through mapping, modelling and measurement, leading to reduced costs and reduced risk to personnel, environment and asset.

Services we’ll be showcasing include consequence modelling services which help quantify risk arising from gas dispersion, fi re and explosions. These are essential to improve the asset design, incorporate mitigation measures, or devise hazard and management strategies. Helideck studies – BMT is a recognised authority on offshore helideck aerodynamics and flight safety. Our world-class wind tunnel facilities and state-of-the-art CFD modelling provide designers and operators with clear and insightful assessments of proposed helideck designs, and our CAP 437 compliant integrated marine monitoring systems ensure helipad downtime is minimised. Single Point Mooring (SPM) monitoring systems provide tankers and FPSOs with real time operational and environmental data to manage the integrity of loading systems, achieving safer transfer and buoy approaches.
