Petrofac has been awarded a three-year contract to provide a condition monitoring program for Bumi Armada’s Olombendo floating, production, storage and offloading (FPSO) unit bound for offshore Angola.
Currently under conversion in Singapore, FPSO Olombendo will be deployed to the Eni field 15/06 East Hub field development towards the end of 2016.
The scope of work will include the implementation of the condition monitoring program, training, an 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,” Steve Johnson, Petrofac vice president asset management said. “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.”
This award builds on a contract secured in May 2015 from Bumi Armada to provide a maintenance management system for the Armada Kraken FPSO, deployed in the East Shetland basin.
Petrofac has more than 10 years of specialist asset management experience in engineering, operations, maintenance and integrity, supporting the systems and processes that influence performance on a diverse range of assets, from offshore installations and associated infrastructure to major processing facilities and LNG plants.
