POTABLE WATER FOR OFFSHORE OIL PLATFORM

Sea Water Reverse Osmosis Plant

Oil and Gas

North West Shelf, Western Australia

BACKGROUND

As a long-term supplier to Australia’s largest publicly traded oil and gas exploration and Production Company, MAK Water was invited to bid for the design and construction of a new reverse osmosis (RO) plant for the Goodwyn A (GWA) Platform, located 135 km north-west of Karratha, offshore of Western Australia.

Located above deck in a Zone 2 Hazardous Area, the RO plant was designed to fully comply with the client’s offshore engineering standards and specifications, built using client preferred mechanical and electrical equipment, and supplied with a comprehensive vendor data and documentation package.

SOLUTION

MAK Water designed and manufactured a skid mounted
Sea Water Reverse Osmosis (SWRO) Plant, to produce 40 m3/day of potable water, suitable for installation above deck in a Zone 2 Hazardous Area.

PROJECT CHALLENGES

  • Limited available footprint
  • Zone 2 Hazardous Area (Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) was remote mounted)
  • Client preferred mechanical and electrical equipment

ENGINEERING and DESIGN REQUIREMENTS

  • HAZOP, Safety in Design, Constructability and Operability Studies
  • Dynamic structural analysis and certified lifting points
  • Third party hazardous area certification

QUALITY and DOCUMENTATIOn REQUIREMENTS

  • Inspection Test Plan (ITP) with witness/hold points, Factory Acceptance Test and Site Acceptance Test
  • Material traceability (Positive Material Identification (PMI) reports and mill certificates)
  • Comprehensive supplier documentation package

RESULTS AND BENEFITS

  • Compact design. Plant was able to fit into the required footprint, and was easily installed on site.
  • Fully compliant. High quality plant built to client’s stringent offshore specifications.
  • Self-sufficient. Eliminates reliance on bunkering tankers for potable water supply.
