Our leadership and experience allows ABS to evaluate floating production assets for continued service with a primary focus on the safety of personnel, the asset and the environment.
The ABS Life Extension process is a staged approach to evaluate if a floating production installation is suited for continuing service while facilitating regulatory and statutory acceptance. These activities can be executed at a pace that suits the client’s needs.
