S OFEC Inc. is a recognized leader in the design, engineering, and fabrication of mooring systems for floating oil and gas production facilities and marine terminals in the midstream sector of the industry, which is responsible for the movement and transportation of these resources. SOFEC, which stands for Specialized Offshore Facilities & Engineered Components, began operations in 1972 when the company was licensed by Exxon to design and supply a Single Anchor Leg Mooring (SALM) system in deep water. This SALM system facilitated the transfer of liquid cargoes from onshore to offshore, or from offshore to onshore, by allowing the system to rotate, or “weathervane,” as waves, current, and winds change.
