Zentech to be Integral with the Conversion of a Jack-up to an Offshore Installation

HOUSTON, TX (November 9, 2020) – Zentech Inc has been awarded the Structural Engineering scope for the conversion of a Jack-up Rig to an Offshore Installation for BW Energy. Prior to the acquisition, Zentech carried out an engineering study and survey onboard the Jack-up Drilling Rig, ATLA, as part of an initial study to identify the feasibility of the Mobile Offshore Drilling Unit (MODU) in the field. Zentech will carry out all structural engineering for the conversion to an Offshore Installation (OI) as per the rules and regulations for ABS Classification Society. This milestone ensures the vessel will receive a state-of-the-art production facility that will help in the advancement of innovative technology in marginal field development. This will also mark the first deployment of an OI for BW Energy. The OI will provide the field owner the capability of having a Production Facility installation for a significantly reduced cost compared to a traditional platform structure. With the necessary resources allocated to this sophisticated project in a post-Covid-19 world, this project is expected to be completed by Q1 of 2022. “We are very excited to work with BW Energy to bring the first of its kind MODU converted OI to West Africa,” said Ramesh Maini, CEO of Zentech Incorporated. “We will always do our best for our clients and we are confident we will meet or exceed their expectations.” Zentech Incorporated is a Houston, Texas-based marine engineering, project and construction management and naval architecture firm specializing in the offshore oil and gas and renewable energy industries.
