ICR play critical role in Cruden Bay terminal regeneration

ICR has recently completed a crucial scope of work for Doosan Babcock on the Forties Pipeline System (FPS) shutdown project at the Cruden Bay Booster Station, in North-east Scotland.

The three-week shutdown, intended to ensure reliability to 2040, saw ICR specialist technicians onsite support the removal and reinstatement of the main valves and piping from the sealine receiver from the Forties field through to the new, above ground, piping system and pig launcher at the land line during the planned FPS outage scope.

Akey project for ICR, the regeneration works at Cruden Bay isa critical part in the shutdown of the FPS, requiring close planning with the Doosan Babcock site construction team for several months during the construction phase of the project, prior to embedding a team for the outage at site.

The ICR team were responsible for bolt tensioning, torquing and flange management work for the above ground large bore piping and valves, which led to a 14 person multi-skilled team working 12 hour shifts day and night, back-to-back, during the shutdown to complete the critical path works. The team also completed pre outage hot bolting, outage bolting operations, pipe cutting for removal of the redundant piping and land-line launcher, line boring on critical path spool work and the reinstating of all large bore spools and valves.

Shane Gregory, Business Development Manager, ICR, said: “This has been a great project to be part of – our client Doosan Babcock made us an integral part of their planning for the tight turnaround window a shutdown brings, and our teams have really delivered. The final completion of the leak testing package gave the site a 100% pass rate, meaning the sealine could be de-isolated to enable offshore to start pumping again.”

Colin Macdonald, Construction Manager at Doosan Babcock, added: “There was a good collaborative approach to this scope of work involving all parties. ICR supported and integrated well into the team, to ensure a safe and quality deliverable for the project.”
