Topsides Commissioning

In order to ensure a flawless initial startup, effective interface management between key engineering areas is critical and must be maintained throughout the life of the project from the preliminary FEED phase to sustainable steady-state production.

In GATE’s experience, major issues are often not detected until the initial startup of deepwater developments, causing deferred production and consequently many expensive changes. GATE gets involved early in the design process and applies a systems-wide engineering approach that negates many of the potential issues encountered during initial startups to minimize cost and schedule impacts.

GATE has expertise in facility design, planning and execution of commissioning and start-up operations, as well as being able to provide on-site technical support during well unloading and commissioning activities. This enables a rapid response capability to unexpected events and the ability to transfer learnings to our clients.

GATE’s ability and proven track record to our client delivers a sound process to carry Mechanical Completion to Static/Dynamic Commissioning completion thus ensuring a trouble free start-up.

Use of the GATE Completion System (GCS) assures API 1FSC Compliance.
