Offshore and Upstream Development
Major oil companies and offshore contractors have trusted Glosten to provide sound advice on complex offshore installation projects. From mooring designs, vessel dynamics and met-ocean analysis to operations planning, voyage routing and risk assessment, Glosten has served the offshore community for more than three decades.
Because of our broad understanding of ocean mechanisms, our services are frequently sought at two distinct stages in a project life cycle: (1) the early, conceptual stages of a project before an Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) program is fully scoped; and (2) at the operational planning stages where critical review and vetting of preparedness is required.
Our seasoned project management team draws upon the breadth of our technical expertise backed by state-of-the-art analysis tools (WAMIT, MORA, MAESTRO) to deliver comprehensive solutions to the unique problems faced by the offshore industry.
Our areas of expertise include:
- Hydrodynamic analysis of platforms
- Model testing
- Construction support
- Assembly-at-sea procedures
- Mooring systems
- Operations planning
- Operability/risk assessment
