“We are extremely pleased to share our experience with the recent Integrity Assessment Project for the Excalibur FPSO, a crucial endeavour in ensuring the long-term viability of our asset in the Avalon Field of the North Sea. At Ping Petroleum, we understand the paramount importance of maintaining asset integrity while minimising offshore interventions and the collaboration with Imrandd and GDi has proven to be a very clever and cost-effective way to gain the results we required.
The project’s objective was clear: to comprehensively assess the integrity of the Excalibur FPSO and identify key priorities for replacement, repair, or maintenance. This strategic approach aimed to secure a seamless operational life for the field, up to the current designated cessation of production year in 2035. Imrandd and GDi’s expertise and proprietary technology were instrumental in helping us achieve this goal.
The scope of work was large, focusing on a thorough examination of the topsides pressure systems, internal and external integrity evaluations, data analysis and providing actionable recommendations. The use of GDi’s Vision tool in combination with Imrandd’s analytics technology provided a comprehensive data extraction, cleansing, and formatting process from which a robust and accurate foundation was built to base our decisions.
Overall, the novel way in which the experienced engineers at Imrandd and GDI completed this project was a creative and cost-effective method to achieve the integrity assessment of our Excalibur FPSO”.
