About the Project


The FPSO Capixaba is currently on the Cachalote Field offshore Brazil.

Formerly on the Golfinho field, it was taken off station and refurbished to suit the new location.

Locker Heatshielding were commissioned by Single Buoy Moorings Inc. in 2005 to provide radiant Heatshields for the turret area of the FPSO Capixaba for its new offshore Brazil position.

Single Skin Ladder type Heatshields were installed on the side of the FPSO turret area. They protect both the electrical control cabinets and personnel accessing these areas, from the effects of radiant heat during flaring off of waste hydrocarbons.

The Single Ladder Heatshields were used in this location for their excellent radiant heat reduction capabilities, along with the inherent strength, visibility and ventilation they provide.

About the Project


The FPSO Kikeh is currently located 120km northwest of the island of Labuan, offshore Sabah, East Malaysia in water depths of around 1,300m.

The FPSO is operated by Murphy Sabah Oil Company on behalf of Partner Petronas Carigali. Locker Heatshielding were commissioned by Single Buoy Moorings Inc. in 2007 to provide radiant Heatshields for the external turret area of the FPSO.

At the time of construction the vessel had the largest external turret to date and was the first Malaysian FPSO in the SBM fleet.

Deliverables


Single Skin Ladder type Heatshields were installed on the front face of the FPSO turret area facing towards the flare boom as well as around the crown block area including the roof area.

The Heatshields are used to protect both personnel and key equipment from the effects of radiant heat from the flaring of excess hydrocarbons. The Single Skin Ladder Heatshields were used in this location for their excellent radiant heat reduction capabilities, along with the inherent strength, visibility and ventilation they provide along with the ability to span large distances.

Forties Alpha Platform

About the Project


The UK North Sea Forties field underwent a major refurbishment in 2007. The offshore flare platforms required replacing as they had been in situ since installation of the platforms in 1976.

Locker Heatshielding were contracted by Amec to provide replacement Heatshield panels for the Forties Alpha flare platform to protect the Flare deck structure from elevated temperatures.

Due to the relatively complex shape of the replacement flare platforms, the Heatshield panels had to be individually designed with a number of complex shapes incorporated. The flare deck shields also had to fit closely around the new flare tip pipes to prevent any ingress of radiant heat through the flare deck.

The replacement flare platform was built on the quayside in Aberdeen and the shields fitted before the entire structure was transported offsite.

The existing flare platform was then removed, and the new platform lifted into place as a complete unit, significantly reducing the installation downtime.

About the Project


Locker Heatshielding Ltd were contacted by Technip Oceania in 2008 to assist with protection of flare gas supply pipework and flare air ducting located at the Kupe Gas onshore terminal. These flares are positioned in a specially designed burn pit to prevent damage to any surrounding infrastructure.

Due to the horizontal orientation of the flare tips, the Heatshields had to provide full protection to both the equipment and support structure, as there could be a tendency for the flares to blow back in the direction of the Heatshield wall. The shields also needed to fit in close proximity to the flare tip piping without affecting performance.

The Locker Single Skin Ladder was selected, as it provides 150mm standoff from the supporting structure and greater protection against the flare and radiant heat produced.

A key benefit of Locker Heatshields is that they can easily be shaped to fit around practically any shape and size, providing greater flexibility for challenging onshore and offshore projects such as this.

The Kupe natural gas field is located in the Tasman Sea, 30km off the coast of Manaia in Taranaki, New Zealand. The field was discovered in 1986 and is located in 35m of water. The production facility comprises an unmanned offshore platform, a 30km single 3 phase pipeline to shore and an onshore production station.

About the Project


Total E & P Nigeria contacted Locker in August 2008 regarding a problem with the AMT2 flare deck.

The Original Flare Deck had no Heatshield protection and the supporting steelwork was damaged by the elevated temperatures present. Numerous interim modifications were employed in an attempt to strengthen the structure but Locker Flare Deck protection was agreed as the best solution.

The replacement flare deck provided unique challenges in that the panels had to be shaped around the existing structure, and modifications undertaken over the years meant incorporation of a number of complex shapes.

These panels were designed, fabricated and delivered to a tight budget and delivery schedule, and subsequently installed within the specified period. Successful fulfilment of complex requirements strengthened our relationship with Total E&P in the West African region and further demonstrated our ability to meet any challenge asked of us.

About the Project


Jacobs Engineering contacted Locker Heatshielding in June 2008 regarding a project at the Ineos Grangemouth processing plant. Recent expansion of the plant meant that a 25m escape walkway had to traverse a flare exclusion zone, passing through two separate flare stacks to the accommodation block and muster points beyond.

The radiant heat present within this zone was specified as 6.3kW/m², and as the maximum exposure for personnel making emergency access through this area is limited to 30 seconds, it was imperative that a complete protective solution for any personnel required to access this route was provided.

Locker Mini and Ladder Heatshields reduce the radiant heat by in excess of 80% at a distance of 300mm behind the front face, so by installing the Heatshields on all three exposed sides of the escape route, the radiant heat would be reduced to around 1.3kW/m². This is below the threshold for the maximum radiant heat for continuous exposure.

Typically Locker would specify Ladder shields for the sides of the walkway as this incorporates an internal personnel protection mesh which prevents contact with the outer ‘Hot’ Radiant mesh.

On this occasion however, as the structure was placed onshore without limitations to space, the design team were able to include an additional single file walkway within the structure with handrails on either side.

This prevented any possible contact with the Heatshields, and it was therefore decided that Locker Mini Shields would be attached to both sides plus the roof of the escape route.

The full supply of Heatshields was designed, fabricated and supplied ready for installation within a dedicated window so as to reduce the plant downtime to a minimum.

About the Project


Bul Hanine PS3 Offshore Bridge Link between the platform and accommodation block is protected with Ladder shields on both sides to protect personnel from the effects of radiant heat in emergency evacuation situations. The shields also provide good visibility and ventilation.

The Heatshields had to be shaped around the deluge valve equipment, with an internal Heatshield closing the gap left by the equipment to prevent the ingress of radiant heat.

The purchasing company was Doha Petroleum and the project is part of a 40 billion Qatari riyals ($11 billion) redevelopment of the existing Bul Hanine offshore oil field located about 120 km (75 mi) east of the Qatari coastline by DOHA, Qatar – Qatar Petroleum (QP). The project is one of the largest to be managed and executed by QP, and it is designed to prolong the field’s life and double its current oil production rate.
