Life extension of in-service marine units, application to FPSO and LNG carriers
New international regulation imposing double hull tankers, lead to turn over end of life tankers to FPSO (Floating production Storage Offloading). This raises a problem with the life extension of the units that must account for the new operational conditions. Bureau Veritas has introduced a method to assess the residual life of a tanker and to decide of the necessary modifications and improvements to reach the new contractual life time. The method is described with the support of an actual example.
