Site Visit to St Joseph Platform

SJQ-A Platform

Previously I’m involved in St. Joseph Chemical Enhanced Oil Recovery (CEOR) project for Sarawak Shell Berhad(SSB). This is fast track project for 3 month duration and currently in Pre-Feed stage. 

The site visit/survey for this project was carried out on the 21/12/2011 for one jacket platform which is SJJT-H. My scopes of work for this site visit/survey are as below:

1.  Check the spare breakers for new UPS, instrument, process, lighting and small power loads.
2.  Check the MCCB and MCB rating.
3. Identify the deck extension area and check the electrical items obstructing the new deck extension area.
4.  Identify the existing lighting, earthing and cable routing available at site.
5.  Take photo
