The international energy consultancy Xodus Group has been awarded a contract with Qatargas to provide vibration engineering services at onshore and offshore facilities.
Working in partnership with Chiyoda Almana Engineering, Xodus will look to develop a long-term piping integrity management programme to assess, reduce or eliminate vibration in all of the Qatargas facilities, both onshore and offshore.
The US$ 1 million one-year contract is for a Technical Services Vibration Programme at the Qatargas QG1, QG2 and QG3&4 LNG facilities, Ras Laffan refinery and associated offshore assets, with the option of an extension for a further two years.
Colin Manson, CEO of Xodus Group, said: “Our specialist vibration expertise is ideally suited to some of the challenges facing operators in Qatar and across the region. Eliminating vibration supports integrity management plans and can deliver significant asset cost savings. In partnership with Chiyoda Almana, we look forward to working with Qatargas to address integrity issues to assist production.”
