About the Project


Transocean Galaxy 1 was selected for a drilling campaign on the Elgin field within the North Sea as a direct replacement for the previously operating Rowan Viking Drilling Rig.

Due to the close proximity of the drilling rig to the flare boom of the Elgin platform there was a requirement to fully enclose the drilling derrick of the rig, which consisted of placing Heatshields on all four sides, as well as covering the crown block roof.

Design and fitting of the support structures, along with the installation of the Heatshields was completed in association with MSD Design Ltd.

Deliverables

In excess of 1750m² Locker ‘Extra Span’ and ‘Double Skin Ladder’ Heatshields were attached to pre-fabricated support structures, which were then lifted into place and clamped to the Derrick structure.

About the Project


Stones floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) is an ultra deep-water oil and gas development in the Gulf of Mexico. It hosts the deepest production facility in the world, in some 2,900 metres (9,500 feet) of water.

As part of the Stones development, Locker Heatshielding provided both Ladder and Extra Span shields which protect the turret area from the effects of the radiant heat produced during flaring operations. The project continued our team’s excellent long-term working relationship with Single Buoy Moorings.

The Stones development is located in the Gulf of Mexico’s lower tertiary geologic trend, a new frontier in deep water where Shell achieved first commercial production with Perdido. Phase one of the project includes eight subsea production wells tied back to the FPSO. Multiphase seafloor pumping is planned to pump oil and gas from the seabed to the vessel, increasing recoverable volumes and production rates.

About the Project


Prelude is the world’s first ever floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) project. Locker shields with a combined area of over 2,000m2 have been delivered to SHI (Samsung Heavy Industries) and SBM (Single Bouy Moorings).

The Prelude, constructed at the Samsung Heavy Industry yard in South Korea and engineered by Technip, will be delivered to Shell by the end of 2016.

Locker Heatshielding has designed and supplied a range of different shields for the world famous Prelude.

Installed Locker flare deck shields can be seen approximately 1 minute into the Shell video below:

Bumi Armada – Olombendo FPSO, Angola

About the Project


Locker Heatshielding Ltd were contacted in July 2015 by Bumi Armada Berhad regarding their Heatshield requirements for the Olombendo FPSO which was to be situated in Angola Block 15/06 East Hub Field.

Angola Block 15/06 East Hub Project consists in the development of Cabaca North and Cabaca South-East reservoirs located in the water depth range between 500 and 600m and ENI Angola expects to produce up to 100,000 bbl of oil per day from the Cabaca South East Area and Cabaca North Area wells.

The FPSO specified design life is 20 years and therefore the Heatshields were required to be designed for in excess of this timescale. This project required the shielding of 3 separate modules and the swivel turret from the effects of the radiant heat being produced from the close proximity of the Flare boom. Each module was to be covered with a canopy structure with a Heatshield roof and either one or two sides of shields dependent on the location of module to the flare boom. In addition the swivel turret required complete coverage of the Aft face (facing the flare) and the remaining three sides required specially shaped panels for the upper 1m of each level for protection against Solar radiation.

Deliverables

Module 15

Double Skin Ladder shields were installed on two of the faces of the specially designed frame which was used to cover the module along with Extra Span shields on the roof section to ensure that the entire working area beneath was protected from the radiant heat.

On completion of the installation and inspection of the Heatshields the full frame and Heatshields were lifted onto the FPSO using the Hercules II heavy lift vessel.

Module 31

The M31 module was protected using Double Skin Ladder shields on the front face and Extra Span shields on the roof section. These shields were installed on the quayside in the Dyna Mac yard in Singapore before being transported and lifted onto the FSPO in the Keppel Fels Tuas Yard.

Module 43

Module 34 is situated directly below the flare boom and as with the previous modules Double Skin Ladders and Extra Span shields were installed remotely before being lifted into place.

Module 10 - Swivel Turret

The Module 10 Swivel turret presented additional challenges in that support frames had to be designed and installed around the existing module. These support frames had to be designed to fit around a large number of pipe protrusions and over the top of equipment which involved providing Heatshield frames and shields in numerous shapes and sizes.

The entire Aft Face was required to be shielded and these panels were installed on a standalone support frame which was then lifted into place.

About the Project


Locker Heatshielding were contacted by Crowners Services regarding an extremely urgent requirement they had for Heatshielding the reverse of the cranes on the Siem Helix 1 and 2 Drill Ships to protect the hydraulic jumper hoses, the degreasing of the main crane wire and cylinders. The Heatshields for Helix 1 were required for delivery in Rotterdam within two weeks of the order being taken.

Click to download PDF Project Sheet: Siem Helix 1 and 2 Well Intervention Vessels.

Deliverables

The Heatshields selected for the project were the Locker Extra Span shields which were designed and manufactured to suit the support frame provided and shipped to Rotterdam for integration with the drill ship during preparation for an upcoming well intervention contract.

On completion of the installation of the Heatshield panels the Helix 1 and 2 the vessels set sail for Brazil and are currently undertaking well intervention activities on behalf of Petrobras.

About the Project


The Montrose platform is approx. 217km east of Aberdeen in the Montrose field discovered in 1969 by Amoco.

As part of the Montrose Area Redevelopment Project (MAR) an additional bridge linked platform was installed alongside the existing Montrose Platform.

A major upgrade of the existing platform was also undertaken, including replacement of the south east accommodation block stair tower.

Click to download PDF Project Sheet: Montrose Stair Tower.

Deliverables

Three Sides of the Talisman Montrose Platform south stair tower were protected using Locker Extra Span shields.

The shields were designed to fit to existing customer steelwork and were shaped to fit around the protruding beams as shown above.

The Extra Span shields were bolted directly onto the universal beams with panels bolted directly through the front face of the beam as well as using brackets developed by Locker.

The Locker Extra Span shield provides very good visibility and ventilation through the shield whilst also providing excellent protection against Radiant Heat. The Extra Span shields were designed to fit around and behind the existing doorways to provide maximum protection at all times.
