Offspring International Ltd (OIL) is committed to developing the most cost-effective, high performance, single point mooring and offloading solutions for oil and gas operators.

All Single Point and Tandem mooring systems are project designed and custom built under rigorous quality assurance conditions which conform to appropriate classification requirements and / or OCIMF 2000 Guidelines.

OIL works closely with Lankhorst Euronete Portugal on ongoing testing, development, and optimisation of rope designs to increase the mechanical performance and life of fibre ropes, hawsers, floats, and connectors.

We are continually raising the standard for the quality and mechanical performance of our mooring ropes and hawsers. Additionally, Lankhorst Ropes continues to increase production capacity to meet the demands of the offshore industry.

The Lankhorst Ropes factory in Portugal has the world’s largest SPM, MODU and Deepwater rope dedicated rigging shop, reflecting the need for longer ropes in deepwater mooring and increased focus on bespoke SPM mooring ropes.

OIL is also the international agent for MIB Italiana’s MIBreak marine breakaway couplings and EMSTEC GmbH offloading hoses as well as the primary agent for Techflow Marine’s Quay Reel tanker loading and unloading system.

MIBreak breakaway couplings are designed to minimise the effect of tanker breakout and internal pressure surge events. Its next-generation rapid response, petal valve design minimises oil spills, yet is easy to reset on-site, reducing terminal downtime following an incident.

MIBreak features unique on-site reassembly after activation, enabling the MIBreak to be quickly and easily put back into service. There is no need to return the coupling to MIB to be reset. Moreover, on-site preventative maintenance by trained engineers ensures longevity of coupling service life. MIBreak is maintenance free for 5 years and designed for a 20-year life subject to periodic maintenance.
