Modification of existing assets impacts operational performance. Owners of these assets consider the future gain and calculate ROI accordingly. They also try to minimize the short-term effect of the modification works. Keeping exposure limited is important during modification projects.
“Modification projects impact production capacity and therefore the effectivity of modification works needs to be optimized.”
Conbit is often brought into the project to ensure that the operational impact is kept to a minimum. We design our installation methodologies to do just that. Preventing hot works, subsea work, or marine spread positively affects the modification lead time.
Activities that require stopping a piece of equipment or shutting down a complete platform should be limited. Limiting the duration of the production outage is important to avoid significant project costs.
For modification projects, often lifting and handling operations are required. The operations are often classified as high risk, which might result in loss of production. Operators and owners of production facilities understand that there are ways to minimize the impact of such risks.
That is the main reason for getting Conbit into their modification projects.
There are many technical challenges Conbit has solved in the past. The most added value comes from Conbit being well-prepared. Before we start a project, we clearly understand all interfaces. We prepare the client to set aside the right budget and let them plan their maintenance works.
Conbit plans realistically because we understand that our clients are planning their production.
