    ABS wins first RBI contract

    News // November 3, 2000
    ABS Group of Houston has secured what it claims is the first contract for an integrated, risk-based inspection (RBI) of an offshore platform in the form of the Petrobras P-35 FPSO, which will be moored in the Brazil-Marlin Field in 2,788ft of water offshore Brazil. The P-35 is ABS-classed and has a design capacity to process 100,000 barrels of oil per day.

    ABS says the Petrobras contract represents the first RBI for an entire floating structure, including both marine and plant considerations.

    The integrated RBI carried out on the P-35 will include the marine/process systems, structural components, ship hull and turret.
