Early Production Facility

thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions Oil & Gas has provided design and support services for a number of Early Production (or Extended Well Test) Facilities, predominantly for onshore oil discoveries. Early Production is usually key to the success of onshore oil production: as well as proving the availability of resources and the techniques employed to extract the oil, it provides an opportunity to sell product into the local market and generate early revenues.

Many of the oil developments in question are located in remote territories, usually remote from any existing infrastructure (towns, suitable roads, pipelines, power grid…).

thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions Oil & Gas will start by assessing the most appropriate location for the facility, which is not always adjacent to the well site and we will initiate design and planning for additional infrastructure outside of the facility as well as the facility itself. This may include roads, pipelines, storage tanks, process (separation) equipment, export (tanker) loading facilities and control cabin, in addition to perimeter fencing, power requirements, lighting and security considerations.

thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions Oil & Gas will produce a multi-discipline basic engineering package for the process facilities, tanker loading facility and pipeline to enable procurement and contracting activities to follow. The bid process and evaluations will be undertaken by the thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions Oil & Gas team on behalf of the client. We have experience in undertaking engineering and project/procurement management for the project and we can also manage the award and subsequent co-ordination of the equipment packages and facilities construction.
