PIPELINES

 

·         AECE (ECUADOR) LAGO AGRIO NPS-16” CRUDE PIPELINE

Designed a 100,000 BPD pipeline to deliver heavy crude from Lago Agrio tank farm to the “OCP” (pipeline utility transporting crude from the Amazon Ecuador region to the Pacific coast of Ecuador). Provided project management and design. Total cost = $6 million US.

 

·         OCP PIG SCRAPER STATION

Performed design package for pig receiving at the OCP terminal for Oxy, AECE, Kerr McGee and Repsol YPF. The design included all civil, mechanical and instrumentation/electrical to handle safety situation (SCADA) and routine crude oil operation at the OCP terminal.

 

·         SAMSON BUICK CREEK GATHERING SYSTEM

Two design tasks were performed:

 

1. Gathering system simulations to match and predict pressure drops through the main NPS- 10”/12” line. PIPEFLO was used for this.

 

2. Complete re-licensing of the gathering system for sour service.  NDT was performed and a report was submitted to the OGC (BC regulatory agency for oil and gas) for the new conditions. Approval was obtained in two months.

 

·         COMODIN MEXICO COCHABAMBA PIPELINE (BOLIVIA) BASIC ENGINEERING

Performed process design for a 247 km NPS-10” pipeline (Maximum elevation 3700 m). Sized lines and pumping stations Using HYSIM and PIPEFLO for simulations.

 

·         CONFIDENTIAL PIPELINE FEASIBILITY STUDIES

Performed two process designs for large diameter 500-700 mile pipelines in Alberta and South America. Total cost of each was in the $600 million to $1 billion range.

 

·         MORRISON FENN COMPRESSOR STATION UPGRADE

Retrofitted separation/compression/refrigeration facilities, to process different pressure inlet gas (30 MMSCFD).  Total costs of retrofit = $2.5 million.

 

·         FOXCREEK GAS PLANT REVAMP AND 40 KM PIPELINE/GATHERING SYSTEM

Installed pipeline/gathering lines to transport additional 20 MMSCFD of sweet gas.

 

·         PANCANADIAN LITTLE BOW GAS WELL TIE-IN

Re-licensed existing Sweet Gas Line to Sour Service. Removed coupons on pipeline and performed testing to submit report to AEUB to justify service change.  Project on-line in 4 months.  Total cost= $420 k.

 

·         VARIOUS CLIENTS

Design and Project Management for plowing in High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) pipeline for numerous low-pressure gas gathering systems in North Alberta. Also steel pipe with HDPE liner to handle high pressure corrosive produced water injection.
