    BMT ARGOSS wins Caspian Sea forecasting contract

    News // April 17, 2013

    BMT ARGOSS (BMT), a subsidiary of BMT Group Ltd, has secured a long-term contract to provide an oil major with weather forecasting services for all its North Caspian Sea operations, both offshore and onshore.

    The scope of BMT’s work includes provision of all forecasting services including Metocean and aviation as well as all operational support, including maintenance of meteorological equipment on all of the installations.

    BMT’s working relationship with this oil major extends back to 2009, providing elements of the forecasting services package. However, the new contract sees BMT as the sole provider of weather forecasting services.

    BMT’s 13 strong team will provide a 24/7 service in extremely harsh weather conditions with temperatures as low as -30 degrees C.

    Where necessary, BMT’s forecasters and Metocean service specialists will travel to offshore installations to provide bespoke ice and aviation forecasts to support operational requirements.
