SAN ANTONIO ---Today at the Subsea Tieback Forum and Exhibition in San Antonio, Texas, MCS announced that it is building on its existing riser engineering and subsea integrity management services with improved software capabilities, heightened collaboration with sister companies, and a new senior appointment to lead further expansion in the key US market.

Rob Martin has been appointed to lead this sector of MCS' business and technical team in Houston.

As part of its wider services offering, MCS has enhanced Flexcom riser design software, to provide greater capability for bottom roughness analysis, lateral and upheaval buckling analysis, and jumper design. Further offerings include Pipelay software to provide increased capability for pipeline installation analysis and planning.

MCS now offers its engineering and integrity management services as part of the Wood Group. The company says it will continue to expand its advanced subsea engineering capability as part of the newly formed Subsea and Pipeline Technology group, which includes J P Kenny, MSi, and Ionik.

"MCS will also collaborate closely with our Wood Group sister companies to offer clients a more comprehensive and integrated range of services across oil and gas projects," adds Kieran Kavanagh, president of MCS in Houston.
