Refinery Process Plant Infrastructure Upgrade

Upgrade and development of an operational live oil refinery oil process lines, vessels and controls.

Ageing facilities infrastructure required cooling water pipelines, facility sea water culverts and large facility intakes to be isolated and secondary cooling infrastructure designed, installed within the operations TAR window.

New pipeline infrastructure designed, fabricated and logistics managed as part of a fabric maintenance.

Construction was sequenced within operations and defined to complete a phased removal of infrastructure, install temporary cooling lines and replace with new pipelines across the refinery.

Challenges were successfully over come through digital scanning of existing asset infrastructure and development of a new 5km 3d design asset model.

Switch over timings with operations were successfully planned on all facilities to ensure cooling water systems were maintained to prevent operational refinery outages.
