Lion Bulk Handling performed a feasibility study with our research partners to design a complete logistic solution for the bulk transport of chemicals used in the oil & gas / offshore industry. Shell and Petronas have commissioned the study for their drilling operations in the South-Chinese Sea.
Two logistic options researched. Option 1 is to supply the chemicals directly from the manufacturer. Option 2 is to store chemicals locally on land with regular transport to the chemical delivery system. The study evaluated both possibilities.
The study results have been presented in the form of a report, featuring the following items;
- Datasheets and outline specifications;
- Drawings and Process flow Diagram;
- Schedule and cost estimate for implementation;
- Limitations and risk analyses
- Lab testing of the bulk materials
- Pneumatic conveying calculation results
- Recommendations and Conclusions;
- Management Summary.
Unfortunately, the results of this project cannot present publicly. This feasibility study also includes; material testing, material examination and a specially designed bulk handling system within 20 weeks. We are very proud of the result and the excellent cooperation with the Shell and Petronas team.
Would you like to know more about our feasibility study approach? Or need a logistical review of bulk handling operations, determination of required parameters (ship size, storage volumes, equipment capacities, etc.), determine the type of storage facilities, (un)loading equipment, estimation of required capital costs and operational costs,
conceptual terminal design, or want an analysis of several scenarios regarding your material conveying processes.
Lion’s flow engineers are ready for your bulk handling challenge.
