In January 2016, MetraWeather and science partner MetOcean Solutions will be at OGEX, the largest and longest established oil and gas exhibition in Myanmar.
The storm in the Caspian Sea in December 2015 cost the lives of more than 30 offshore oil workers and caused major infrastructure damage. The events served as a tragic reminder of the significant impact severe weather and challenging marine conditions can have on offshore oil and gas operations.
Weather has been a factor in seven of the world’s 10 worst oil rig disasters.
In South East Asia and Australia, tropical cyclones and tropical squalls are one of the biggest threats to offshore safety and can present marine engineering challenges for offshore operators.
MetraWeather and science partner MetOcean Solutions provide the Asian and Australasian offshore sector with real-time, site-specific solutions for health & safety, environmental, operations and maintenance, marine aviation, engineering design and lightning detection and proximity alerts.
Specialist providers of oceanographic and marine weather forecasting, MetraWeather provides services to companies including Woodside Energy, Royal Dutch Shell, ExxonMobil, BG Group, and Murphy Oil.
MetraWeather and MetOcean will be exhibiting on Stand 07 at the 6th Myanmar Oil & Gas Exhibition (OGEX) in the Sedona Hotel, Yangon, Myanmar from 28th–29th January 2016. OGEX is the largest and longest established oil and gas exhibition in Myanmar.
MetOcean Solutions oceanographer and CEO Dr Peter McComb will attend the exhibition accompanied by Tom Sutherland, General Manager Asia for MetraWeather. They invite offshore companies to join them to view demonstrations of MetraWeather’s maritime weather dashboard, MetOceanView (MOV), and learn about the meteorological and oceanographic characteristics of offshore Myanmar.
