Port traffic monitoring and intelligence system

The LPS – Local Port System is a tool that allows the registration and direct and intuitive visualization of the most varied performance parameters for the control, planning and cost reduction of the port operation. The LPS system uses a modern interface, based on Business Intelligence technologies, to present port operators with a portrait of their operation over time, supporting decision making and optimizing the different aspects that make up each port reality.
In addition to the interactive visualization in real time, the system also enables the automatic generation of customized periodic management reports, which allow to monitor the evolution of the monitored parameters over time, facilitating the control and planning of the operation.

1st Brazil FSRU SUMMIT – 1o Brasil FSRU SUMMIT

In a world scenario with natural gas supply and considering that the Brazilian energy matrix is in transition, the use of LNG (liquefied natural gas) has been the target of numerous studies and projects in the country, some of them already in operation. In this context, the use of floating regazification units (FSRUs) appears as a competitive option for cost, implementation period and environmental licensing.

However, technical, regulatory and financial aspects can directly impact the viability of each project, depending on the location of the project and its strategy.

This workshop organised by SOBENA will aim to:

• Present the characteristics of the Brazilian FSRU market;

• Understand and identify potential regulatory obstacles;

• Discuss technical fundamentals to enable the implementation of the floating regazification units;

• Present solid financing strategies in the implementation of these ventures.

Based on these principles, SOBENA – Brazilian Society of Naval Engineering promotes the 1st FSRU SUMMIT to be held September 12, 2019.

IMPORTANT COUNTRY NAUTICAL SIMULATORS ARE OCEANICA

Experience with Petrobras America in the Gulf of Mexico had made it clear to Oceania’s engineering team that it would be essential to have a nautical simulator to support future studies and also enable training and maneuvering campaigns in the country.
Shipping companies also felt this need, set up training centers, and became interested in simulators. Oceânica worked to meet the needs of these companies in training and maneuvering simulations on various types of vessel.
Nautilus – A New Chapter in History
Following this, the company inaugurated its Port and Oceanic Simulation Center – Nautilus, a watershed in the history of Oceania, enabling maneuvering and training campaigns with unrestricted and real-time port environment simulations. “We had support from the Netherlands Maritime Research Institute, Marin, a world pioneer in this type of technology and an important partner for the company. The great differential is the history of hydrodynamic validations of the vessels made in the institute’s 7 test tanks. With that, the ships behave as they do” said Daniel Cueva, managing partner of Oceânica.
The full mission simulator is DNV certified and is available to the Brazilian business market, maritime authorities and academia, a simulation center comparable to the most up to date in the world. It enables nautical operations, helping to minimize risks and increasing operational efficiency, so shipping companies use it to train their commanders, reducing accidents.
“Nautilus provides us with training, feasibility studies and new terminal designs at our headquarters,” added Daniel Cueva. The contracts are usually around 2 or 3 years old and confirm the trust between clients and Oceânica.
“We understand the needs of offshore shipping and support companies very well and constantly study ways to deliver more resources to these customers. A protocol for monitoring the actual maneuvers through monitoring is being developed against the simulated exercise so that commanders excel in adjusting the practice” said Afonso Cabrera, manager of Oceânica, who closely monitors all possibilities for improvement in projects.

FPSO Integration

We are glad to inform that during the last July, two massive Brazilian FPSO projects achieved an important milestone. The P-74 and P-76 hulls left the Inhauma yard and were towed to each integration site for the final phase of the projects.

Since the beginning of the Cessão Onerosa (P-74, P-75, P-76 e P-77) and Replicantes (P-66, P-67, P-68, P-69, P-70, P-71) FPSOs, OCEÂNICA has performed several engineering and field activities for these units, such as:

  • Stability analyses and booklets
  • Topside modules load-out engineering and coordination
  • Rigging plans and coordination
  • Weight control and modules weighing
  • Vessel ballasting plans and coordination
  • Motion analyses
  • Tow masters and marine personnel
  • Structural analyses for topsides, hull and auxiliary systems;
  • Towing plans, procedures and simulation for all maneuvers from hull conversion yard to integration sites*
  • Mooring plans, procedures and supervision, among others.

Congratulations to all teams involved on these projects!

Oceânica concludes PLEM-Y installation project in ultra deep water

Oceânica recently finished another PLEM-Y installation analysis project (pipeline end manifold). The project was performed for GE Oil and Gas and the installation will be performed soon by Petrobras in the Lula field.
The equipment is part of the subsea system to be operated in the production of 12 billion BOE. The field is part of pre-salt Campos Basin, a very challenging area due to the condition of the most turbulent sea, as well as its water depth of approximately 2,200 meters. The project performed by the Oceânica team, was to determine the method and operating window for the PLEM-Y installation.
The analysis presented an innovative solution for installation in ultra deep water. The PLEM in question has large drag area and the solution presented in this case was to lower the equipment inclined, in order to reduce the hydrodynamic effects and at the end of the lowering process, perform a load transfer for a smaller vessel for an easier settlement on the seabed.

Oceânica says goodbye to OTC 2014

Oceânica participated one more time as exhibitor at OTC 2014 that was held in Houston, USA, since May 5th.

Oceânica and HBR committee

This year committee counted with a team of 6 engineers from Oceânica and HBR that represented the companies within the Brazilian Pavilion, organized by IBP – Brazilian Oil Institute. The Offshore Technology Conference was founded in 1969, and it is the world’s foremost event for the development of offshore resources in the fields of drilling, exploration, production, and environmental protection. Besides the business performance, it is an opportunity to meet friends and clients from Brazil and overseas.
