“Target Zero Facilities” Topsides Wellhead Platform Concept Studies and FEED
ICON was recently engaged by a SE Asian Operator to conduct Concept Study and FEED Engineering for its next-generation minimal facility wellhead platform. This wellhead platform design is proposed to be used at multiple future locations for its gas expansion programme.
The engineering focused on developing a minimum facilities platform design that could be installed using either a jack up drilling rig or conventional derrick barge. As such, it was imperative to design the structure to minimise installation time and incorporate our T&I lessons learned up front.
“Target Zero Facilities” philosophy
ICON worked closely with the Client to define a Facilities Basis of Design that started with the philosophy of “Target Zero Facilities.” Therefore, all potential facilities to be included on the platform were challenged to ensure they complied with the target zero facilities philosophy.
The resulting platform (topsides and substructure) design met all the client’s required criteria, achieved low cost, and is now being used as the template for the proposed forward field development programme.
