S2V Consulting has recently been awarded two major brownfield support scopes for an Australian offshore oil and gas producer.
Lift Gas Conversion Project
The project entails conversion of subsea production flowline infrastructure to lift gas service, enabling revitalisation of high watercut wells and expected to yield a significant incremental production increase as well as extended field life. S2V Consulting’s remit covers process engineering, flow assurance, engineering management and technical integrity approvals, as well as the preparation and support of offshore execution of the conversion commissioning procedures, including all associated engineering analysis to support safe and robust operations with minimal production impact. Challenges include an aggressive schedule, complex FPSO/subsea interfaces and the need to manage H2S and low temperature risks throughout the activities. The scope also includes concept feasibility assessment of accelerating certain conversion activities in advance of the main commissioning to de-risk schedule, and preparation of associated early commissioning procedures.
Risk Management & Implementation Support for an FPSO
S2V Consulting has been awarded a continuation scope of work to identify, evaluate and propose facility modifications to mitigate technical integrity risks across an Australian FPSO, considerably reducing its risk profile and contributing to ongoing safe production of this key liquids producer. S2V Consulting’s remit covers process engineering, multi-discipline engineering management and technical integrity approvals, with the scope extension comprising implementation support for the suite of ALARP modifications agreed with the asset.
Jim Bonini, S2V Consulting’s Technical Director commented, “The award of these scopes again illustrates how our clients recognise and value our strength in applying pragmatic thinking and technical expertise to concept evaluation, and our flexible approach in supporting project execution and implementation phases. Our past and ongoing contribution to these projects demonstrates our multi-disciplinary capability across the project lifecycle, underlining both our expertise in the brownfield concept and execution arenas, and our customers’ trust in our ability to efficiently resolve complex challenges while safeguarding asset integrity and value.”
