Industry Driven Harmonisation of Regulatory Requirements
Lessons Learnt Exchange Between FPSO Owners/Operators (FPSOForum is probably already effective in this area)
Alignment of Future JTP based Tanker Rules and FPSO Design Apprasial Processes (Increased Transparency in Loading Assessment)
FPSO’s - NOT JUST A TANKER WITH SOME EQUIPMENT ON DECK!
REGULATORY ISSUES GOVERN (NO CLEAR SET OF REGULATIONS APPLY)
MANAGEMENT OF VARIOUS INTERFACES VERY IMPORTANT
FPSO-SPECIFIC LOADINGS ALIGNMENT TO FUTURE JTP RULES?
