Overview of Oil & Gas Facilities Design by Herve Baron HERE
The 3-days training session is a detailed description of engineering activities in all disciplines, the organization, the interfaces between disciplines and a typical schedule. Each engineering task is explained and a sample of each common engineering deliverable is shown.
Hands-on exercises derived from real engineering tasks are carried out, including:
• Line and equipment sizing.
• Electrical power demand calculation.
• Typical HAZOP and QRA items.
• Determination of the engineering schedule to suit the Project’s overall schedule and engineering constraints.
The trainees are shown the main challenges faced in engineering (discipline co-ordination, vendors, interfaces, changes, IT etc.) and given the good practices to address them.
- Identify critical activities supporting the implementation of an Engineering Project: key deliverables, time of issue to support the Project’s schedule and critical path.
- Monitor engineering activities performed by contractors: identify key milestones, select meaningful indicators.
- Know the best practices, including management of changes, vendors, interfaces.
- Know the main risks in Engineering execution and how to mitigate them.
- Provide trainees with material for future reference: forms, lists, etc.
Who Should Attend:
Everyone involved in an Engineering Project, wishing to understand and direct its implementation, and particularly to monitor engineering contractors.
1. ENGINEERING OVERVIEW
- The organization and role of engineering in a project: the parties involved, quality, documents, engineering design data, codes & standards, sub-contracting
- Exercise: sensitivity of design criteria
2. ENGINEERING DISCIPLINE REVIEW
- The design basis & criteria
- The engineering disciplines: activities and deliverables (Process, Equipment/Mechanical, Plant layout, Safety, Civil & Structural, Material & Corrosion, Piping, Instrumentation and control, Electrical)
- The overall engineering work sequence: interfaces between disciplines and with vendors
- Exercises: equipment and line sizing, material selection, piping class allocation, electrical power demand calculation, HAZOP, QRA, sequencing of engineering tasks for an EPC Project
3. KEYS TO A SUCCESSFUL ENGINEERING EXECUTION
- Understanding the schedule requirements: critical path of an EPC Project, consequences for engineering
- The key engineering milestones + benchmarks
- The internal constraints of the Engineering schedule: interfaces between disciplines, Vendor input
- Interface and change management: challenges and best practice
- Exercises: draw the list of deliverables then establish the schedule for a FEED and an EPC project, identify interfaces between disciplines, identify vendor drawings required for design development
4. HOW TO CONTROL A CONTRACTOR
- What to put in place to control a contractor: how to effectively monitor progress
- Hands on exercise: Analyze progress figures, deduct required actions
Half of the training sessions are devoted to hands-on exercises carried out by the trainees so that they can put into practice the concepts introduced and ensure their acquisition.
- Drawing up the list of Engineering deliverables
- Understanding the sensitivity of cost to main design criteria
- Identification of the inter-relations between engineering disciplines
- Identification of vendor documents needed for engineering development
- Identification of all documents impacted by a change, etc.
