Hook-up and commissioning is a critical phase in the successful development of an phase in the successful development of an offshore oil production problems of carrying out major works at a remote offshore location make good planning and control very difficult to achieve. This paper describes a general approach to planning and control which is aimed at overcoming these problems. How best to set up the organization and management is considered, a planning method is outlined, and the major factors which influence the control of cost and schedule are discussed. The development of a typical offshore oil production platform has several distinct phases: Hook-up and commissioning begins immediately the facilities modules have been installed on the support structure, and ends when the working platform is transferred from the project team to the operating team. The volume of hook-up and commissioning work is influenced by decisions taken during the earlier project phases. For instance, the conceptual design decisions which determine the choice of platform type; steel jacket; will have a major impact on the amount of offshore work. Although a principal aim of project management is to minimise the extent of the offshore work because offshore hook up its high cost, hook-up and commissioning has, nevertheless, often formed a significant part of the whole project.
This approach has safety benefits due to enhanced control over the activities along with distinct cost advantages. Detailed offshore surveys are carried out to build up a defined scope of work for our experienced Engineering Team. Relevant information is collated including existing documents and drawings, offshore hook up standards, environmental data, etc. Once we have a very detailed defined scope of work and basis of design in place, our offshore construction co-ordinators begin preparation of the Construction Workpacks and Jobcards, which are automatically fed into the progress and productivity reports. Sembmarine SLP Offshore Group has many years of experience hooking up complete new build platforms, accommodation and process modules and diverse brownfield projects such as well hook-ups, subsea tiebacks offshore hook up existing platforms and installation of Pre-Assembled Units PAU such as fiscal metering systems, proppant hydrocyclone packages and Wellhead Power Units HPU. This cannot start until Mechanical Completion MC is achieved.
Offshore construction is the installation of structures and facilities in a marine environment, usually for the production and transmission of electricity, oil, gas and other resources. It is also called maritime engineering. Construction and pre-commissioning is typically performed as much as possible onshore. To optimize the costs and risks of installing large offshore platforms, different construction strategies have been developed. One strategy is to fully construct the offshore facility onshore, and tow offshore hook up installation to site floating on its own buoyancy.
More about offshore hook up:
Hook-up and Commissioning activities are part of "Brownfield" and "Greenfield" Construction to be executed either in Onshore or at Offshore. The term "Brownfield" construction refers to revamping works on existing facilities to enhance production which involve repairs, upgrades, replacement and modification works on existing offshore production facilities and Equipment. Brownfield Construction are generally undertaken when Operators recognize the need to improve Safety aspects, Production, Efficiency and Lifespan of their existing facilities as well as to address maintenance and regulatory compliance issues and update technology. As a whole Brownfield Construction is a combination and synchronization of new components to the existing facilities and it is essential to understand and appreciate how they are inter-related from physical, process, Hook-up and Commissioning and Operating perspectives. It also involves tie-ins to existing facilities for which disruption to ongoing production cannot be avoided and eventually may lead to shut-down of the existing facility for a certain period of time. The" Greenfield" construction term refers to a new facility offshore hook up a Wellhead or Process Platform which has been constructed from scratch at NPCC yard and eventually loaded via a cargo barge for further installation offshore. Unlike "Brownfield Construction, hook-up and commissioning activities related to "Greenfield" construction has no restriction at all in terms of permit to work system application may it be "Hot or Cold" works considering that the facility is yet to be handed over to the client upon mechanical and commissioning completion.
