Offshore Facilities and Ocean Systems

Big data

 

Offshore Facilities and Ocean Systems (OFOS) delivers solutions for the safe and sustainable development of resources for energy, minerals and food production in the ocean environment. 

OFOS is a multidisciplinary group, with expertise in metocean dynamics and ocean forecasting, offshore geotechnical engineering, offshore fixed and floating structural engineering, hydrodynamics and structure interaction, gas processing, and asset management. The group has capabilities in offshore oil and gas, floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG), offshore and coastal renewable energy, offshore mining, marine aquaculture and ocean management. This enables a unified and comprehensive approach to offshore ocean facilities, ranging from core understanding of regional ocean dynamics and forcing, to structural and system design, to operation, to maintenance, and to de-commissioning and closure.
