PROJECT DESCRIPTION

OMV production in the Yemen Habban field is historically around 6600 BBL/d. With high exploration potential in this area, OMV is focusing on further development and the construction of permanent surface facilities. Operating in a remote desert environment is a difficult challenge for personnel and equipment. As part of OMV’s core area of exploration and production, the upgrade of the Kharwah and Al Nilam facilities was strategic to increase production performance and operational safety of these existing upstream holdings. Both early production facilities were initially designed for temporary operations and the geo-political instability in the region has made it difficult to complete more permanent production facilities. This has presented a unique design challenge to create a system that meets both the high level of safety and operating control expected by OMV, while utilizing existing site systems and infrastructure. The resulting control system has full pneumatic based shut down capability, married to an electronic metering system for custody transfer and production records. Drakken was awarded the turnkey contract for automation of these facilities. Specific scope included the following: design and fabrication of custom, fit for purpose, pneumatic shutdown systems for both facilities, specification and supply of the pneumatic instrumentation; design, fabrication and configuration of SCADA Remote Terminal Units (RTU) Panels for electronic metering; specification and supply of all Instrumentation for meters; design and supply of all required electrical and instrumentation cabling and field construction materials; Factory Acceptance Testing (FAT) and functional verification of the systems; and export packing for international shipment. The Drakken project team included project management in the U.A.E., engineering from offices in Canada and Pakistan, leverage of its worldwide supply chain for procurement activities, and testing facilities in Canada. This turnkey project was awarded in 2010 on a fast track basis.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

TAQA North is an Abu Dhabi based energy producer currently developing the Flat Lake area located in Northern Montana, along the Canada/USA border. As TAQA began an aggressive exploration and production expansion in the area, centralized oil. production facilities were required to update existing smaller remote batteries and to increase production capacity. The oil is being produced from the Bakken Formation, which holds reserves of sweet light crude oil and formation gas. The new production facilities are designed to meet updated environmental regulations on flaring practices with capabilities to distribute normally flared gas to a central facility for power generation. On-site power generation is also required as utility power is not reliable during periods of extreme winter weather. The facility normally operates using utility power, but due to severe windstorms, back-up power generation was integrated into the power distribution system. The power generator is designed to run off formation gas and can operate normally to offset utility power consumption. A diesel backup unit is also supplied to minimize down time of the facility as fluctuation in gas production are expected and during routine maintenance. The facility will also power two remote down hole electric submersible pumps (ESPs) utilizing sub-surface medium voltage power distribution, for enhanced oil recovery. The power system will enable TAQA to minimize downtime, and maximize their production revenue. Drakken personnel were responsible for FEED, and engineering of electrical, instrumentation and automation systems for the project. Drakken’s engineering and project management teams completed all work out of Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Site operations of the batteries began in Q2 2012.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

In July 2015, Petronas started a major development project to enhance the production from D18 oilfield located offshore Sarawak, East Malaysia about 90km northwest of Bintulu Crude Oil Terminal (BCOT). The first phase of development was centered on building the water injection facility on a Mat-type jack-up rig called Marsya, owned and operated by UZMA Group. This jack-up rig was bridge-linked to the existing D18MP-A production platform and new waterinjection and gas-lift pipelines connected the central D-18 facility to two existing satellite platforms in the field. Drakken played a major role in this development by designing and fabricating the heart of the facility i.e. The Process Measurement Control system (PMCS), the Safety Instrumented system (SIS) and Local Control Panels for the three water injection pumps (WIP). The PMCS provided stable control of the process under all expected normal and upset circumstances, including start-up while the SIS provided shutdown logic of the process as determined by the Instrument Protection Function IPF and cause and effect. Both the systems were designed to prevent or verify operator commands entered on the Operator Work stations (OWS), supplied by Drakken. Drakken had people working in Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand, UAE and Canada simultaneously to fasttrack Procurement, Engineering and Installation. The engineering and fabrication of the PMCS and SIS control systems were completed in Calgary, Canda. They were then shipped to the vessel, Marsya, in Singapore, for testing and installation. All major instrumentation was purchased out of Calgary, USA and UK. The Instrument Air compressors were purchased out of Germany. Drakken personnel mobilized in March 2016 to Keppel shipyard in Singapore for installation, precommissioning and commissioning which continued onshore till July 2016 when the vessel sailed to offshore Sarawak. Final commissioning was carried out offshore and project was handed over to UZMA Group in August 2016. This was a major turnkey project for Drakkencompleted by the end of Aug 2016.

ARC is one of Canada’s leading conventional oil and gas companies. With operations focused in five core areas across western Canada. ARC is a leading oil and gas producer with quality of assets, management expertise and long-term returns; Following its prudent growth strategy, ARC is retrofitting a mature field with SCADA monitoring and control to minimize down time and significantly lower operational costs. The Red Water field, located in central Alberta, produces high netback light crude oil. This field, began producing in 1948, and remains one of Canada’s most prolific oil discoveries. ARC acquired the Red Water field in December 2005 based on a declining production profile. Since ARC took over operatorship, production has increased to approximately 4,000 boe per day of light crude oil. The overall project included radio communication to 500 wellsites to allow offsite monitoring of wellsite production status and to install production measurement and well testing control and ESD logic of 26 oil batteries within the Red Water field. Each battery receives 3 to 25 oil producing wells and separates the oil, water and gas. Flow meters measure total battery flow rate, and rate of individual wells which are logged in the SCADA systems. The control system controls the well testing logic, well test production measurement, overall production measurement, valve status and ESD logic. A complete telecommunications system was installed to connect each well site to each battery and each battery to the host controller. A hybrid 900mHz and 400mHz system designed was implemented to reduce licensing costs and increase network speed and function. Drakken Engineering completed all SCADA system design, programming and network design. Drakken manufactured the SCADA panels and fully function tested each unit before being released for installation. Drakken Construction teams completed the telecommunications network installation, SCADA panel install and hook up, local site commissioning and SCADA host commissioning.
