We would like to congratulate everyone involved with this year’s RTM Project which has been a huge success with the Project being delivered on time, under budget and without a single recordable incident!

Client feedback:

The innovation and professionalism shown by the Vertech crew during this job has been first class”

As written in Trunkline,

“the work done on the RTM project shows how we can achieve world-class results on complex scopes when we work closely with quality contractors”.

The Okha floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) is stationed about 135 km north west of Karratha above the Wanaea oil field. Its riser turret mooring (RTM), originally installed in 1995, is due to reach its 25-year design life at the end of 2019 so extending that life to achieve the end of field life date of 2031 is one of Okha’s top priorities.
