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 has been providing engineering support to Muhibbah Engineering Bhd for the LNG Regasification Facilities Project, commencing from FEED for the LNG regas unit and the Island berth.
Our combined experience in hazard assessment and marine safety enabled the accurate identification of the relative risk of various transit routes.
In view of changes made to Singapore QRA Guidelines (implemented in 2016), a Dutch storage major with a brown-field facility whereby the risk from the facility has not been assessed engaged BMT to carry out a Quantitative Risk Assessment (QRA) in accordance to both existing and new Singapore QRA Guidelines for the Terminal.
The Client sought out BMT specialists to identify the risks, uncertainties and the potential cost/liability exposure of a bulk chemical storage terminal in the Philippines - as well as the costs of the associated mitigations.
