BMT ARGOSS, a subsidiary of BMT Group Ltd, has secured a weather forecasting contract for a major oil company in the Java Sea.

BMT ARGOSSís expertise will be used to ensure the safe transfer of crews to and from offshore platforms and to optimise operability and minimise risks due to unexpected and unfavourable weather conditions during drilling operations. The contract is for two years, with an option to extend for an additional two years.

The Java Sea is one of the waters of the East Indian Archipelago and is bounded by the island of Borneo to the North, Sulawesi to the West, Java to the South and Sumatra to the East. It is a climatologically interesting area with a complex, monsoon driven weather pattern and a high frequency of thunderstorms.

The Java Sea contract will be supported by BMT ARGOSSís MetOcean Weather Forecast and Emergency Response Centre which provides weather forecasts and emergency response services globally.

The dedicated forecasts, issued by a team of experienced Maritime Meteorologists, are designed to help minimise weather-related downtime and risk. The Weather Support Desk is available 24/7 by phone or email.
