Fireside Mechanical IFR 10-31_2

Due to changing gas flow rates and pressures, PostRock Energy Services Corporation needed to replace six existing compressors at two sites near Chanute, Kansas and improve overall efficiency of the systems. SKW provided all mechanical, piping, electrical, structural and civil engineering services – including instrumentation and controls, survey and drafting to assist the owner in station improvements. Also provided were new piping layouts to improve efficiency and P&ID drawings to indicate location and type for all controls and processes. Where possible, existing equipment was reused and relocated.

White Cliffs Twin

White Cliffs Twin is the planned parallel line to the 527-mile White Cliffs 12-inch crude oil pipeline. Designed to more than double the pipeline capacity to about 150,000 barrels per day, the new line originates at tankage in Platteville, CO – running through pump stations in Sharon Springs and Cunningham, KS – and terminates into existing tankage at Cushing, OK. The White Cliffs Twin pipeline is scheduled to begin service in the Spring of 2014.

Offshore Gas Platform Emergency Shutdown System

The emergency shutdown (ESD) system that now monitors this gas platform’s operations for safe limits performs more efficiently and is far easier to maintain than the proprietary system it replaces. Our solution also has the advantage of minimum impact on technician learning curves, since the code was written using the A-B add-on instruction set to mimic the proprietary code with which they are familiar.

FFT-1

This flexible, fail-safe, Emergency Shutdown System (ESD) was custom-designed for a large research and development laboratory. Researchers could not know in advance what alarm and shutdown limits should be set for the 27 variables whose out-of-range values could trigger an ESD, so the limits had to be configurable.
