Design of new developments is typically led by the three Kenny named constituent businesses, that is, J P Kenny, MCS Kenny and MSi Kenny. As flow assurance specialists, MSi Kenny are likely to be involved very early on in projects to determine feasible solutions for transporting the hydrocarbons from the reservoir to the host facility, and continue through the project phases thereafter, ultimately specifying the operating procedures for the development. MCS Kenny take responsibility for the riser design. J P Kenny, with support from the other Wood Group Kenny constituent businesses as appropriate, leads our subsea operations support capability. We take responsibility for subsea equipment reliability and maintainability doing what is necessary to keep the development in operation. WGIM take responsibility for assessing the ongoing integrity of the subsea system in operation. This means identifying and managing offshore inspections, interpreting inspection results and assessing anomalies, assessing current integrity and finding solutions to integrity problems
