Project Overview

IFS was contracted by LLOG to design and build a Hot Oil Package that would allow the facility process equipment to warm up by removing the waste heat from the Turbine Generator exhaust.

Project Specs

  • Process Heating
  • Double Deck Design
  • Flow Rate of 700 gpm @ 475 F

Project Contracted By

LLOG Exploration Company LLC
Delta House Development

For Use In

USA, Gulf of Mexico

The Challenge

Heating is used in many process applications for the separation and treating of oil & gas streams. Due to the flammability of the oil & gas streams, stable heat medium fluids (like Therminol 55) are used for process heating. Heat from the turbine exhaust is used to increase the temperature of the Therminol 55 which is then used for process heating.

During this process, Oil (Therminol 55) is circulated through the system where it is heated in several Waste Heat Recovery Units associated with each generator. The hot oil is then circulated to the following equipment to provide process heating:

  • Heat Media Start Up Heater
  • Glycol Reboiler
  • Oil Treater Heaters
  • Fuel Gas Heater
  • Condensate Stabilizer Reboiler

A small footprint is essential due to the limited space available on the offshore platform.

The IFS Solution

IFS designed a Hot Oil Package with PumpWorks 610 API Vertical Inline Pumps to allow for thermal expansion of the pumps and piping system at high temperatures. A compact double deck design was created, which separated for truck transportation to the integration site.
