Saipem awarded Tangguh Expansion

Italian oil and gas contractor, Saipem was awarded two contracts for onshore and offshore work in Indonesia on the Tangguh LNG expansion project in Indonesia. 

The contracts were awarded by BP Berau, the operator of the Tangguh LNG project, on behalf of the other production sharing contract parties, Saipem said in its statement.
The first award is for the engineering, procurement, construction and installation of offshore facilities, consisting of two unmanned platforms and subsea pipelines.
Under requirements of SKK Migas, Indonesia’s upstream oil & gas regulator, Saipem will contribute to local content enhancement, including through its own Karimun fabrication yard, Saipem said.
The second contract for the construction of an onshore LNG process train with a liquefaction capacity of 3.8 million tons per annum, utilities, offsites, an LNG jetty and associated infrastructure, has been awarded to CSTS, a joint operation led by Indonesian EPC contractor Tripatra with Chiyoda, Saipem and Suluh Ardhi Engineering.
Both projects are expected to be completed in 2020, Saipem said.

Saipem Karimun - BP to kick off Tangguh Train 3 construction in Q4

British oil and gas company BP has submitted its final investment development (FID) decision over Train 3, the expansion of the existing Tangguh liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant in West Papua on Friday. It is expected construction can commence in the fourth quarter of this year and the project is targeted to be onstream in 2020.
"This final investment decision has been long awaited, not only by BP but also Indonesia. Tangguh would play a big role in supplying energy to Indonesia with state-owned electricity firm PLN as its biggest consumer," BP's regional Asia-Pacific president, Christina Verchere, said on Friday at the Energy and Mineral Resources Ministry office in Jakarta.
She said the Train 3 plant was set to supply 3.8 million tons per annum (mtpa) of LNG, bringing the total supply of Tangguh LNG to 11.4 mtpa. "Following the FID, the key engineering project is likely to immediately begin," said Verchere, adding it was expected the project would create a multiplier effect, generating about 10,000 jobs.
The Energy and Mineral Resources Ministry's director general for oil and gas, IGN Wiratmaja Puja, said BP would provide 75 percent of an estimated total production of 3.8 mtpa, as well as 1 million tons of LNG per year to Japan-based Kansai Electric Power.
Upstream Oil and Gas Regulatory Special Task Force (SKKMigas) chief Amin Sunaryadi explained that in the plan of development (POD) of the expansion of the Tangguh LNG project, the investment of Train 3 initially amounted to US$12 billion, but because of some adjustments on EPC services, the investment in this project amounted to only $8 billion.
"The estimated investment of this project now amounts to only $8 billion because of the plunge in global oil prices, which have impacted the costs of EPC services," Amin said.
Energy and Mineral Resources Minister Sudirman Said said the Train 3 project was important because Indonesia required a considerable amount of energy. The project was also deemed crucial because it was located in Papua, which became the focus of attention of the government for realizing its strategic projects, including for supporting its plan to generate 35,000 additional megawatts of electricity, he added.
"FID is a milestone, but there many challenges ahead," the minister said. (ebf)

Saipem karimun - Chevron awards Gorgon marine structures project to Saipem

Chevron awards Gorgon marine structures project to Saipem ($43 Billion - Reached $10.5 Billion)

In Australia, Saipem, in consortium with Leighton Contractors, has been awarded by Chevron the EPC contract for the Gorgon LNG jetty and marine structures project.

The scope of work will consist of the engineering, procurement, fabrication, construction and commissioning of the LNG jetty and related marine structures for the new Chevron Gorgon LNG plant on Barrow Island, 70 kilometres off the Pilbara coast of Western Australia.

The jetty will be 2.1 kilometers long consisting of steel trusses approximately 70m long supported by 55 concrete caissons leading to the loading platforms approximately four kilometers from the shore. The marine structure will include a heavy lift facility, tug pens and navigation aids. The use of concrete caissons for supports will reduce the environmental impact of the jetty construction by eliminating the use of the traditional piled construction method, which would have required hundreds of steel piles to be driven into the sea bed. The works are expected to be completed in 2013.

Total Station

A total station or TST (total station theodolite) is an electronic/optical instrument used in modern surveying and building construction. The total station is an electronic theodolite (transit) integrated with an electronic distance measurement (EDM) to read slope distances from the instrument to a particular point
Robotic total stations allow the operator to control the instrument from a distance via remote control. This eliminates the need for an assistant staff member as the operator holds the reflector and controls the total station from the observed point
Angle measurement
Most total station instruments measure angles by means of electro-optical scanning of extremely precise digital bar-codes etched on rotating glass cylinders or discs within the instrument. The best quality total stations are capable of measuring angles to 0.5 arc-second. Inexpensive "construction grade" total stations can generally measure angles to 5 or 10 arc-seconds
Distance measurement

Measurement of distance is accomplished with a modulated infrared carrier signal, generated by a small solid-state emitter within the instrument's optical path, and reflected by a prism reflector or the object under survey. The modulation pattern in the returning signal is read and interpreted by the computer in the total station. The distance is determined by emitting and receiving multiple frequencies, and determining the integer number of wavelengths to the target for each frequency. Most total stations use purpose-built glass corner cube prism reflectors for the EDM signal. A typical total station can measure distances with an accuracy of about 1.5 millimeters (0.0049 ft) + 2 parts per million over a distance of up to 1,500 meters (4,900 ft).[2]
Reflectorless total stations can measure distances to any object that is reasonably light in color, up to a few hundred meters
Coordinate measurement
The coordinates of an unknown point relative to a known coordinate can be determined using the total station as long as a direct line of sight can be established between the two points. Angles and distances are measured from the total station to points under survey, and the coordinates (X, Y, and Z or easting, northing and elevation) of surveyed points relative to the total station position are calculated using trigonometry and triangulation. To determine an absolute location a Total Station requires line of sight observations and can be set up over a known point or with line of sight to 2 or more points with known location, called Resection (Free Stationing
For this reason, some total stations also have a Global Navigation Satellite System receiver and do not require a direct line of sight to determine coordinates. However, GNSS measurements may require longer occupation periods and offer relatively poor accuracy in the vertical axis
Data processing
Some models include internal electronic data storage to record distance, horizontal angle, and vertical angle measured, while other models are equipped to write these measurements to an external data collector, such as a hand-held computer.
When data is downloaded from a total station onto a computer, application software can be used to compute results and generate a map of the surveyed area. The newest generation of total stations can also show the map on the touch-screen of the instrument immediately after measuring the points
