Engineering and Design

We are a flexible partner in the EPC market as we team up with contractors, sub-contractors, or enter joint-venture partnerships with engineering and construction companies. We cover the full cycle from the conceptual studies to detailed engineering till commissioning and hook-up while keeping a strong focus on constructability.

 

  1. Conceptual Studies

The high-risk investment profile necessitates that owners and operations must choose the right strategy to ensure return on investments. Conceptual studies examine legal, technical, financial and sometimes even environmental and societal implications of different solutions.

 

  • Qualified expertise to assess project feasibility

Our conceptual studies are based on estimated production rates and reservoir composition. They account for process simulation, flow assurance, and loss prevention strategies, including material selection. We also include life cycle cost estimation, weight and cost estimation and business case calculations.

 

  • Conceptual studies focusing on operability

Our specialists focus on designing solutions that are easy to construct, operate and maintain. We provide consultancy on best and solutions that will optimise operations, reduce cost and risk whilst keeping down-time to a minimum

 

  • HSE and regulatory compliance

Our conceptual studies also consider health, safety and environmental (HSE) aspects, and we offer risk evaluations and environmental screenings to safeguard people and the environment. Moreover, we identify legislative and environmental requirements and devise environmental programmes comprising all necessary steps for obtaining approvals and permits. We have intimate knowledge of national standards, regulatory framework and authority requirements enabling us to support clients locally.

 

Our service within conceptual studies cover:

  1. Process technology

  2. Health, Safety and Environment

  3. Technical Feasibility Studies

  4. Cost and Weight Estimation

  5. Concept Definition

  6. Third-party Evaluations.

 

2. Front End Engineering Design (FEED)

The FEED study matures the selected concept to viable solution that is east to construct and operate. The primary purpose of the FEED study is to provide a viable solution and a cost estimate, which enable the final investment decision. Moreover, it provides the basis for the EPC or detailed engineering tender and contract.

 

  • Our Feed study enhances the full project lifecycle

In the Feed study, our specialists consider the entire lifecycle, enabling us to present robust solutions that create value from commissioning to decommissioning of the asset. We aim for design solutions that are easy to fabricate, install, operate and maintain. Our FEED studies are therefore geared towards making the right operational and material choices, reducing cost and risks, whilst maximising availability.

 

  • Deliverables in the FEED phase

Our technical definition and cost estimates for FEED will be accompanied by a number of deliverables that substantiate the estimates and serve as a basis for the EPC contract and procurement of long lead times.

 

  • HSE and regulatory compliance

Our FEED studies also consider health, safety and environmental (HSE) aspects, and we offer risk evaluations and environmental screenings to safeguard people and the environment. Moreover, we identify legislative and environmental requirements and devise environmental programmes comprising all necessary steps for obtaining approvals and permits. We have intimate knowledge of national standards, regulatory framework and authority requirements enabling us to support clients locally.

 

Our Services within FEED cover:

  1. Safety, Operational, Control System, Installation Philosophies

  2. 3D Modelling

  3. Equipment sizing and specifications for process and utilities

  4. Material Take-Off Lists (MTO’s)

  5. Cost and Weight Estimation

  6. Preparation of EC Tender Material

 

 3. Detailed Engineering

The detailed engineering phase is the final stage of a project and typical deliverables include procurement specification, construction drawings, and evidence of design verification. This package can form the basics for EPC contract, authority approvals and/or certification by a third party.

 

  • Advanced 3D modelling of layout – a decade(s) of engineering experiences

We draw on a multidisciplinary skill base, a decade(s) proven track record working with various projects, and some of the most accomplished experts in the industry.  We are therefore weel equipped to provide qualified recommendations in the deatiled engineering phase. This is demonstrated by our successful execution of numerous project through via contractors, sub-contractors, joint-venture partnerships.

 

  • Robust Project Management Practices

To ensure that project delivery is on schedule, within budget and of the highet quality, we emply a project execution model that is designed to maximise client benefits.

 

  • HSE and regulatory compliance

Our Detailed Engineering also consider health, safety and environmental (HSE) aspects, and we offer risk evaluations and environmental screenings to safeguard people and the environment. Moreover, we identify legislative and environmental requirements and devise environmental programmes comprising all necessary steps for obtaining approvals and permits. We have intimate knowledge of national standards, regulatory framework and authority requirements enabling us to support clients locally.

 

Our Detailed Engineering Services cover:

  1. Project Management

  2. Process Engineering

  3. Technical Safety and HSE

  4. Piping and Layout

  5. Mechanical Engineering

  6. EI&T

  7. Maintenance, Modification and Operation

  8. 3D Laser Scanning and Survey

  9. Structural and Civil Engineering

  10. Technical requisitions and construction drawings

  11. Installation procedures and start-up and commissioning

 

4. Engineering Procurement Construction Projects

The EPC set-up provides developers and owners with single point of contact throughout the project execution phase and reduces financial risks. EPC projects are multidisciplinary in nature and efficient construction management coupled with a continual focus on HSEQ are key success factors.

 

  • EPC(M) services

We offer EPC(M) (Engineering, Procurement and Construction (Management) services for offshore and onshore projects.

 

  • Constructability

We act as a flexible partner in the EPC market as we team up with contractors, sub-contractors, or enter joint-venture partnerships with construction companies.  Throughout the detailed engineering phase, we keep a strong focus on constructability. As a part of our EPC service, we handle construction management, construction supervision and provide a backup team, just as we carry out pre-commissioning, commissioning and hook-up.

 

  • HSE in EPC Methodology

Careful consideration of health, safety and environmental aspects forms an integrated part of all our project solutions. Our EPC methodology is based on the building blocks of our HSEQ and project management system and focuses on all the elements of managing an EPC project. With a fully defined project management approach and EPC methodology together with our contractors, sub-contractors, or joint-venture partnerships, we have the required processes and systems to handle highly complex projects.

 

Our services for EPC(M) projects cover:

  1. Project management including management of subcontractors, cost control, reporting & project follow-up

  2. Detailed engineering

  3. Procurement

  4. Construction management, construction supervision and backup team

  5. Pre-commissioning, commissioning and hook-up
