Design and Fabrication of Offshore Skids to DNV and Gulf of Mexico Specifications.
Foley can design new offshore skids, containers, and baskets to meet DNV or to meet the requirements of the major oil companies operating in the Gulf of Mexico. Foley Engineering Specification 10-901 includes the GoM design requirements in a single specification. To download a copy of Foley 10-901, click here.
Foley can fabricate your skid or other equipment to meet the required specifications, including DNV 2.7-1.
Certification of existing Offshore Skids to Gulf of Mexico Specifications.
Foley has extensive experience in the certification of existing offshore equipment to meet the requirements of major oil companies operating in the GoM.
API RP16ST stipulates that shears and blind/shears of CT BOP’s should be performance tested every six months. The pipe used for the shear test should have at least as high a shear pressure as any pipe used on jobs. To download a summary of shear test stipulations of API RP16ST click here.
Slip Performance Tests
API RP16ST stipulates that slips and slip/seals of CT BOP’s should be performance tested every six months. Foley has designed a unique load test fixture that allows the slips to be tested in both the pipe heavy and the pipe light directions while the BOP remains vertical in the stack. The pipe/slip rams of Dual Combi’s can be tested through the BOP without necessitating breaking down the stack. To download a summary of slip test stipulations of API RP16ST click here.
Shear Pressure Calculations for specific jobs
Shear pressure depends in part upon the MASP and the properties of the pipe. Shear pressure calculations using the MASP and the properties of the CT reel used on a specific job are performed.
Accumulator calculations are performed to verify that charge pressure, pre-charge pressure, and accumulator volume are sufficient to operate a specific BOP stack and shear the specific pipe used on a job at the MASP of the well.
