Lucion’s expertise and services have helped to ensure that SBM Offshore meets its requirements around the safe management and disposal of hazardous materials.

SBM Offshore is a leader in floating production systems, whose operations span the full product lifecycle for Floating/Production, Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessels. Specifically, Lucion undertook work for SBM on the 278,000 DWT FPSO ‘Marlim Sul’, which was operating offshore Brazil before being decommissioned and sent for lay-up in Malaysia.

A team of BOSIET (Basic Offshore Safety Induction and Emergency Training) certified hazardous materials inspectors from Lucion spent several days onboard to undertake visual inspections and survey key sections of the vessel. They also completed a sampling exercise while the FPSO wound down operational activities.

The survey has been a key component in the preparation of an Inventory of Hazardous Materials (IHM), which is critical in helping to identify hazardous materials left over from the production processes undertaken by offshore vessels.

This work, which also helped to determine removal and disposal charges, allowed recycling yards to plan the safe dismantling and associated costs. It also ensured that IHM Parts I, II and III were comprehensively compiled for reference and maintenance purposes, contributing significantly towards full regulatory compliance.
