The objective is to assist in the delivery of incident free execution of projects through focused risk mitigation in key potential process safety impact areas such as station keeping, and vessel integrity (related to ballast/watertight integrity and stability), as examples. This is accomplished by a consistent and concentrated approach on addressing these exposures in the context of the industrial mission that is to be accomplished.

The GATE Offshore Solutions group provides expertise in the following areas:

  • Station Keeping
  • Vessel Integrity
  • Loss of Containment
  • Ballast Management
  • Marine SIMOP’s
  • Incident Prevention
  • Operations Support
  • Project Management
  • Sustainability

The planning associated with the operation of Marine Systems should be based on managing exposure to the consequences of mal-operation, in addition to standard marine risk management objectives. This should be based on the principles of:

  • Clear understanding of the Marine Systems and Industrial Mission of the vessel.
  • Clear understanding of the associated activities that are relevant to the execution of any mission activity.
  • Validating onboard capabilities and awareness of emergency and backup methods for operation of Marine Systems.
  • Executing drills and tests demonstrating emergency and backup operation prior to execution of the Industrial Mission.
  • Assessing vulnerability of marine systems to damage and develop contingency plans for recovery to Task Appropriate Safe Condition (TASC).
  • Planning and conducting those activities with the appropriate understanding and fit for purpose controls or barriers in place.
  • Development and implementation of the ASOG, WSOG and/ or AMOG (as appropriate).

Rig Readiness

The GATE team has excellent experience in managing and delivering projects that are safe, on-time, on-budget, and in compliance with governmental and regulatory standards. We have already developed a framework for the project that will allow for flawless execution. A majority of the Rig Readiness Team will be in-house along with some outside engineering and technical support. The GATE Commissioning Team will lead the condition-based assessment, the dynamic and static commissioning, as well as the startup of the asset.
