In considering its options for the retirement of the TVI facilities, Chevron engaged the services of Linch-pin prior to the first framing session in Phase 1 of the Chevron Project Development and Execution Process (CPDEP).
Nexus Energy was considering the economic merits of drilling the Gemfish prospect. Linch-pin was requested to produce a cost estimate report to upgrade the Patricia Baleen Process Plant to process the Gemfish gas which is prognosed to be 20% C02.
Linch-pin supported PTTEP AA with the design (structural, piping, E&I), procurement, fabrication and installation preparations for the tieback of the H5 dry tree to the production manifold on the Montara WHP. This included the preparations of offshore procedures and workpacks.
As part of the Montara Recovery Project, Linch-pin assisted PTTEP during the Montara WHP Commissioning by providing marine, logistics and permitting support including.
With only two weeks lead time Linch-pin developed a hydroblast cleaning, visual/ borescope/ UT and RT inspection and a decontamination and preservation methodology for the manifold. Based on these, a detailed budget, schedule and scopes of work were developed.
Linch-pin was invited by PTTEP AA to assist them with developing and managing a contingency campaign to prepare for and, if necessary, replace the Montara WHP risers.
Linch-pin was invited to assist Apache with the management of the concept select, define and execution stages of the decommissioning and abandonment of the Legendre Field.
