Alphatec on Petrofac Facilities and Management Ltd

CASE STUDIES
By Alphatec Engineering

Alphatec applied its expertise on the issues of skid perimeter grouting, skid fill, and pressure injection.

For the customer Petrofac Facilities and Management Ltd, and end user Total E&P UK, Shetland Gas Plant, Alphatec had to implement its grouting expertise on problematic units.

The units in question are high-pressure SPX/Clyde Union 5-cylinder plunger pumps, driven by ABB electric motors of 420 kW, through a David Brown gearbox, operating at 238 rpm. All three elements are mounted on a fabricated steel skid, with approximate dimensions of 8.2 x 3.3 x 0.3m. The units were manufactured and installed in 2015, but have been suffering from vibration issues since start-up, and are in MEG injection service.
