A Cold Work installation method was used to reinstate 32m² of the inner bottom of the cargo oil tank No.1 Starboard onboard FPSO Bohai Shi Ji.

  • SPS allowed a safe and unhindered repair to be undertaken
  • Adjacent tanks remained in service
  • The FPSO remained on-station, in full operation whilst the work was carried out
  • Cold Work installation method eliminated risk of fire-related hazards in restricted zone, adjacent to live cargo tanks

All SPS steel components were prefabricated on-shore, of which forty-two pieces comprised top plates and perimeter bars. The new bottom plates were pre-drilled and tapped for vent holes. The prefabrication of components considerably cut works onboard, project duration and POB (Personnel On  Board).
