This involves an integrity study of 15 subsea pipelines serving the Zakum oil field, allowing ZADCO to plan future maintenance and potential equipment replacement needs.
Production from Zakum started in 1983. The goal of this project is to extend the design and service life of selected pipelines by an additional 20 years.
Ramboll’s scope includes a review of available pipeline data, assessment of current and future pipeline integrity for future operations, and calculation and prediction of the corrosion growth rate.
According to Jesper Thomsen at Ramboll Oil & Gas Middle East’s Abu Dhabi branch, current market conditions are driving a renewed focus on extending the lifetime of equipment and assets.
