Owing to the nature of the offshore oil and gas industry market in recent years, LMC has seen a big increase in Front End Engineering Design (FEED), Pre-FEED and Design Competitions being performed for major contracts.

LMC has the capability to perform an independent assessment and determine the most suitable mooring system to be deployed at a given site, taking into account such parameters as Metocean conditions, soil conditions, existing infrastructure, proposed vessel and offloading parameters.

LMC can develop the conceptual designs and perform a feasibility study of a variety of alternative mooring systems, and through our own experience and sub-vendor contacts can provide an expert assessment of the cost and schedule involved with each proposal.
LMC can then develop the conceptual designs whether the proposed system is a spread moored system or a more complicated internal turret.
LMC like to work closely with the Oil Company or Contractor to ensure that the developed design fully meets their requirements.

Third Party Review and Client Representation 

LMC can perform third party reviews and design verifications for single packages to full turret mooring systems. LMC offer a technical service in order to support or act as Client Representative on behalf of the Oil Company or Contractor.
