Unique System FZE, a Unique Maritime Group company, will provide the Abu Dhabi Oil Company Ltd. (Japan) with meteorological and oceanographic data to aide operational decision-making.
Since Abu Dhabi Oil Co. (ADOC), started its oil production in May 1973, ADOC has been developing its oil fields and producing oil with special consideration to the environment, safety and stability issues. Through such efforts, ADOC has been contributing to the energy supply to Japan and to the development of Abu Dhabi.
The system is installed at a Single Point Mooring (SPM) buoy, a large buoy at sea for mooring and filling oil tankers over the course of several days. A common feature of single point systems is that their upper sections are above the surface and that they have a single terminal offloading point around which the off take tanker can normally weathervane. The loading hose and where relevant, the mooring hawser are connected to the bow section of the off take tanker.
