Remote locations and challenging environmental conditions mean any modification to an existing facility requires meticulous investigation and planning.
We have extensive experience of working on brownfield modification projects, through the entire project lifecycle from concept to implementation.
This has taught us that there is no substitute for early and focused engineering work to drive cost and schedule certainty in subsequent phases.
Our multi-disciplinary engineering teams are formed to meet your project’s needs and develop appropriate technical definition.
Brownfield modification focus areas include:
Confirming existing facility as built data and specifications, through site survey and operations engagement
Confirming capacity/ullage of existing systems (electrical, instruments, mechanical, process, safety, structural)
Detailed constructability reviews to establish physical and logistical constraints and drive design towards build simplicity
Identify and minimise requirement for partial/full production shutdowns through design
Establish asset late life issues which may place additional constraints and/or scope on the project (for example integrity, regulatory change, turndown).
Our engineering teams’ experience is supplemented with the latest technologies to help solve complex integration problems:
3D Modelling (PDMS) and incorporation of 3D cloudpoint survey data
Finite element analysis and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)
