Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

1.- What information do you look first?

2.- What deliverables are produced by process engineering?

3.- Whatr information does piping receive from process engineering?

4.- What are the main activities in piping?

5.- What information does electrical and instrumentation need from piping?

Dear Santos,

To develop engineering plan for an oil/Gas Project, you will need to:

1.1 Interact with the Process Engineers  to carry out simulation studies using appropriate engineering software to help determine the volume of oil/gas/condensate expected to size up the vessels/pipes/manifolds and some process equipment  to be employed.       PPpp

Process engineering deliverable to be captured in your plan includes PFDs, Mass balances, & process equipment & data sheet.

1.2 Interact with Piping/Mechanical Engineers to determine what facilities in form of piping, pumps and equipment that will need to be designed to manifold, contain and convey the oil/gas  from source to destination.... Main activities of piping here .

Main activities of Mechanical piping here include pipe & equipment specs, fittings, bolts, gaskets, vessel, etc sizing’s. All these will be detailed out in isometric drawings.

1.3 Determine the nature and source of the oil/gas project - Is it a green field or brown field project?      I

If green field, determine whether environment is onshore or offshore and have civil/structural engineers design structures to ensure that your project facilities are adequately supported.    

1.4 Interact with Electrical and Instrument Design Engineer who will closely take a look at (1) PFDs as produced by the Process Engineer (2) Piping isometrics as produced by Mechanical Piping & civil/ Architectural Drawings as produced by the by the Civil/Structural Engineer and then contribute his professional role in the production of P&ID and also the electrical one line drawings & others for various equipment and facilities to be installed on site.

(1.4) Interact also with every team member involved with HAZID & HAZOP studies to determine the nature of the oil/condensate being expected.  Find whether it requires pigging/ coalesce to remove impurities & also the size of separators required.

If you require more information, Endeavour to keep in touch and be properly guided (email: ujamson@yahoo.com).

Regards

Ujam

1 -The contract & scope document. If your engineers have developed them, also basis of design, and DDR (design deliverables register)

 

2 -PFDs, P&IDs, mass balances, valve & pump sizings, ESD cause & effect, HAZOP

 

3 -most of the above

 

4 -Specs for pipe, valves, coating, PIGs, MTOs, construction / test specs, piping supports

 

5 - Just the specs, really

Hello Raul

       i have not experiance in Oil & gas sector. But generally i can say that

2. Process Engineering deliverable:- Design Basis, PFD, Mass Balance, Hazop Syudy, P&ID, Process Data Sheet, Process instrument data sheet, process control phylosphy, Instrument list,

3. P&ID, Line list & line schedule, Tie-in list, equipment & instrument list

4. Piping layout, Isometric Drawing, Stress analysis, Piping & Fittings specification, Piping MTO,
