Scope of Services 

In this project, PT BiRU conduct engineering activities for Well Head Platform development. Activities performed includes engineering analysis, engineering study, modeling and simulation, and technical drawing. This engineering phase will involve several discipline, such as Process, Process Safety, Piping, Mechanical, Electrical, Instrumentation and Telecomunication, and Structural.

BiRU was challenged to determine the most suitable design to handle wellhead which has the highest H2S content (4000 ppm) in Indonesia.

During the project execution, BiRU also perform HAZID and HAZOP as part of safety risk assessment. 3D PDMS model was developed to facilitate the project requirement.

BiRU also provide engineering services for PT PAL Indonesia during the procurement phase.
