Client: Pearl Oil
Pearl Oil are proposing to develop a new oil and gas field in the Makassar Straits, with the platform location for this operation being some 350km distant from land based processing facilities at Balikpapan. In order to deliver product to the land facilities, there will need to be a bottom mounted pipeline, and hence design of this pipeline from a safety/risk perspective is a key issue.
Outcomes and Benefits
In order to inform and guide the design of the pipeline and offshore production platform, BMT completed a significant metocean data collection and soliton evaluation exercise.
Key tasks completed in this regard included the following:
Services and Expertise Provided:
BMT supported COWI in the development and evaluation of a direct airport link at The Pearl, Qatar, utilising “Venetian style” fast launches.
BMT assisted in the development of offshore oil facilities on Pulau Busing Island, off Singapore's busy south coast. The work was motivated by the increasing costs of oil, and the BMT team was in place to assess a total engineering design and project management consultancy for four new jetties.
BMT was appointed by Vopak Yang Pu, Hainan Storage Terminal to provide consultancy services on all matters relating to the marine facilities for the terminal development.
The Brisbane River Catchment Flood Study is the most detailed and comprehensive flood study ever undertaken in Australia. The hydraulic models that were developed underwent rigorous calibration. A sophisticated Monte Carlo approach was used to hydraulically model 11,340 flooding scenarios. The result was a robust and defendable set of design events. The study was fully peer reviewed by a panel of independent experts.
