Rally began with an initial screening exercise of the Client’s conceptual ideas, to quickly short-list and assess the most viable options.
The multi-discipline study required coordination on many levels to provide input to the Concept Selection Report. A heavy focus was initially placed on the process discipline to develop a process design basis. This entailed complete hydraulic calculations for each of the options, creation of preliminary P&ID sketches, and development of decision analysis criteria in accordance with the Client’s needs.
The other engineering disciplines also provided insights to each option – including equipment placement options, piping stress analysis, pipe rack capacity checks, budget quotations for additional valves, and electrical load capacity checks. Direct capital costs were estimated for each of the selected options, helping the Client to make an informed decision on how to proceed.
