Since the mid-1970's, the business of RPS MetOcean has evolved to serve the demanding needs of the offshore oil and gas industry, shipping and mining industry, and their associated regulatory authorities.
Activities which would typically benefit from application of meteorological and physical oceanographic services are as follows:
Offshore Oil and Gas
- offshore operations (seismic survey, installation etc)
- floating facilities
- offshore structures
- coastal facilities
- tow routes
- ports and harbours
- air quality
- noise dispersion
To maximise the effectiveness and utility of meteorological and oceanographic services, metocean products must be carefully matched to the industry application, and results clearly communciated to the non-specialist end-user.
