Flare Tip Replacement - Gajah Baru, Indonesia

Conbit’s expertise in flare tip replacements

The Premier Oil-operated Gajah Baru field produces 100 million cubic meters of gas a day. Because of Conbit’s extensive experience and success in providing lifting solutions, Premier Oil requested Conbit to replace the flare tip of Gajah Baru in Indonesia.

Power of preparation

Engineering

After reviewing the details of the platform, Conbit was confident to use its mechanical handling method for this project. The flare tip access platform had enough strong points to support the lifting system and the weight of the flare tip. However, to ensure all parties of the method’s safety and efficiency, the team made a site visit and launched an engineering phase. 

Mobilization 

Mobilization of the crew was challenging due to COVID-19 measures. The team was required to take the test before traveling to Jakarta, Indonesia. Also, they had to go to eight days of strict quarantine before going to the offshore facility. 

Upon arrival at the project site, the team unpacked all containers and built the modular lifting device.

Removal and installation 

During the shutdown, the mechanical handling system lifted the 2950kg old flare tip and the 2335kg new one. The Conbit crew loaded these two directly onto a supply vessel from an inclined flare boom. There was a last-minute change of plan when the supply vessel that was meant to use by the team was substituted.

To execute the task, the team also used the rigging equipment, primary heavy lifting equipment, and winches. Conbit used the rigging equipment to lift the primary lifting equipment. 

Outcome

The flare tip replacement in Gajah Baru in Indonesia was completed successfully and ahead of schedule. All thanks to our off-site engineers, four engineers from other countries, and our team's three local rope access technicians.
