Genesis offers advanced analysis consultancy services tailored to the oil and gas sector. Our experienced engineers apply advanced numerical models and software to predict and mitigate events where abnormal or accidental loads are applied to structures or where structural capacity is degraded due to fatigue, corrosion or abnormal events.
Our engineers have an extensive background in extreme loading analysis and non-linear structural behaviour.
They are accustomed to solving some of the energy industry's most challenging structural problems, supporting optimisation of structural design and maximising the potential of existing platforms.
Our engineering support to clients in upstream areas includes:
Pushover ultimate strength analysis of offshore structures
Abnormal load assessment including wave-in-deck and wave slamming on fixed and floating units
Fatigue/fracture – structural response under cyclic loads
Assessment of existing structures, life extension studies
Creation of a digital twin and incorporation of structural monitoring
Blast response assessments and designs to offshore facilities
Fire loading and response assessment and design to offshore facilities
Passive Fire Protection (PFP) optimisation to offshore facilities
Seismic response assessment for offshore structures including fixed jackets and subsea structures
Strengthening, modification, repair and retrofit design
Dropped object assessment and mitigation studies of topsides and subsea structures
Ship collision impact assessments
Offshore wind turbine load analysis
Fluid structure interaction, coupled finite element and computational fluid dynamic analysis.
Downstream expertise includes:
Facility siting studies (in accordance with API 752 and 753)
Blast/fire response assessments, retrofit and designs to petrochemical facilities
Seismic analysis/hurricane assessment of buildings, equipment and storage tanks
Blast resistant modular building design
Blast and fire testing
