Design Challenges:

The project scope evolved during the FEED phase to larger-sized equipment which required major updates to the original modularization plan. Also, the modules design needed to meet constructibility requirements to ensure efficient reassembly process at site. As such, pre-fit up for all modules was incorporated into the modularization plan. Due to the elevation of the existing Piperack, the flare header needed to be elevated to ensure the PSV’s header was sloped into the existing Piperack. The new elevation extended from 18 feet to 40 feet.

Compass Solution:

  • Revised the modularization plan and preplanned the shop space to accommodate the larger modules arrangements.
  • Worked closely with client to effectively manage project scope and schedule, and to ensure changes to scope were efficiently evaluated and implemented.
  • Worked diligently with our major suppliers and developed an integrated schedule to keep the overall project schedule on track.
