BP’s Glen Lyon FPSO classed by DNV GL

The classification scope covers the essential elements of the marine vessel,

DNV GL DNV GL has awarded class to BP’s Glen Lyon Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessel located west of Shetland. DNV GL’s Maritime and Oil & Gas business areas have been working closely together, to provide BP with a broad range of technical skills required for the challenging conditions in which the FPSO will operate.

Glen Lyon is a purpose-built FPSO which is expected to produce 130,000 barrels of oil a day at peak production. The vessel was transferred into class shortly after first oil in May 2017. 

 

The classification scope covers the essential elements of the marine vessel, the structure, floatability, station keeping, and essential marine systems, and ensuring the asset integrity of these key features.  

 


Ernst Meyer, Director of Offshore Class, DNV GL, says: “The FPSO market is our most important source of growth for Offshore Class and we have worked systematically to win class transfers over the two last years. The Glen Lyon is coming on top of five other recent class transfers in Brazil, Nigeria and Iran, making DNV GL the leading offshore class society in the industry.” 

 

The inspection regime is based around a risk-based inspection (RBI) model, taking into account the knowledge gained from the newbuild engineering and construction. A structural integrity model of the hull was built to manage the asset together with BP. 

 

The work performed by DNV GL on the classification of the hull will also be used in supporting BP’s compliance with the UK safety case regime. 

 

Scott Jervis, Regional Offshore Manager, DNV GL, says: “We are especially proud to have developed a risk-based inspection process for the classification on this vessel. Throughout this project, DNV GL has shown a broad range of competences from both our Maritime and Oil & Gas business areas, to develop a solution for BP’s needs.”

DNV GL will be present at Offshore Europe 2017 5 - 8 September
