Work to repair five separate areas on board FPSO FPF-003, operated by Petrofac South East Asia Pte Ltd using SPS has been completed on-station in the Mubdala, Jasmine oil field. The repair work on this ABS classed vessel, built in 1976 and converted in 2005, was completed 15 days ahead of schedule with no disruption to day to day operations. In total 96 m2 of steel was reinstated.

Working with client EM&I and steelworkers Altamar, Intelligent Engineering (IE’s) field team engineers were able to work their way through the five areas: engine room bilge, engine room side shell, pump room bottom shell, forward cofferdam bottom shell and bulk head and main deck.

Mohammad Farihim, IE’s Operations Manager comments, “The team was faced with multiple complex areas to be repaired which meant four machine and equipment moves. The repair locations were all tight and we were working in constant 35° C heat. The original schedule was ambitious (40 days) but to finish in just 25 days comes down to the incredible teamwork on this project. I can’t praise EM&I’s on-board team, Altamar and the vessel’s crew highly enough. The planning for this project was impeccable and the pace, quality and safety of the project were impressive.”

Stephen Blair from EM&I comments, “The SPS repair went well. An additional area was identified mid-project for which an innovative solution was proposed by IE and successfully executed. The team on board were all very experienced which enabled the project to progress rapidly and be executed to a high standard. SPS simplifies steel reinstatement on-board working vessels. It was the right solution for this project.”
