Fabrication and Installation

We Specialize in Fabrication and installation in the oil and gas industry, and this involves the construction and setting up of various equipment and structures necessary for the exploration, production, refining, and transportation of oil and gas resources. Here is an overview of the fabrication and installation processes in the industry:

  1. Fabrication: Fabrication involves the construction of equipment and structures such as offshore platforms, pipelines, pressure vessels, and storage tanks. The fabrication process typically includes the following steps:
  • Engineering and design: Detailed engineering drawings and specifications are created based on project requirements and industry standards.
  • Material procurement: Raw materials, such as steel plates and pipes, are sourced from suppliers.
  • Cutting and shaping: The materials are cut, shaped, and formed according to the design specifications using various techniques, including welding, machining, and bending.
  • Welding and assembly: Different components are welded and assembled to create the desired equipment or structure.
  • Non-destructive testing (NDT): NDT methods, such as X-ray, ultrasonic testing, and magnetic particle inspection, are employed to ensure the integrity and quality of welds and components.
  • Surface treatment and painting: Surfaces are prepared and coated with protective layers to prevent corrosion and ensure longevity.
  • Testing and certification: Fabricated equipment undergoes various tests to verify its performance, including pressure testing, load testing, and quality inspections. Certifications are obtained to meet industry and regulatory standards.
  1. Installation: Installation involves the transportation, positioning, and installation of fabricated equipment and structures at the designated locations. The installation process can vary depending on the specific equipment or structure being installed:
  • Offshore installations: Offshore platforms and subsea structures are transported to the installation site using specialized vessels and cranes. They are then secured to the seabed using techniques such as piling or suction anchors. Pipelines are laid on the seabed and connected to the platform or other infrastructure.
  • Onshore installations: Equipment such as storage tanks, process modules, and refineries are transported to the site and positioned on foundations. Pipelines are laid underground or above ground and connected to the relevant facilities.
  • Commissioning and start-up: Once installed, the equipment and structures undergo commissioning activities to ensure they function as intended. This includes testing individual components, verifying interconnections, and performing operational tests. Once commissioned, the facilities are ready for production.

Safety is of paramount importance during fabrication and installation processes in the oil and gas industry. Strict adherence to safety standards and regulations is essential to mitigate risks and protect the environment and personnel involved.
