Petrofac Ltd. secured a three year contract to provide a condition monitoring program for Malaysian offshore energy facilities and services provider Bumi Armada Berhad’s Olombendo floating, production, storage and offloading (FPSO) unit, currently under conversion at Keppel Shipyard in Singapore, which will be deployed to the Eni S.p.A.-operated 15/06 East Hub field offshore Angola at the end of 2016.
The workscope includes the implementation of the condition monitoring program, training, an American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) initial submission report, monthly vibration and lube oil analysis, risk based reporting and hardware and software support through Petrofac’s proprietary CBMnet system.
“We will work in alignment with Bumi Armada to transition the current maintenance strategy on-board the FPSO from preventative to predictive. Through this change we will actively monitor and measure asset-specific variables that can impact and disrupt performance … Our CBMnet system will work in parallel to support the program, providing recommendations that will optimize maintenance activities to increase overall asset reliability and achieve maximum production,” Steve Johnson, vice president Asset Management, Petrofac Engineering & Production Services said in Thursday’s press release.
