Oilfield services provider Petrofac has secured a contract to provide a condition monitoring programme for Bumi Armada’s Olombendo floating, production, storage and offloading (FPSO) unit.

The FPSO is currently under conversion in Singapore and will be deployed to the Eni field 15/06 East Hub field development offshore Angola by this year end.

Under the three-year contract, Petrofac will be responsible for training, implementation of the condition monitoring programme and provision of an ABS initial submission report.

"Through this change, we will actively monitor and measure asset-specific variables that can impact and disrupt performance."

The company’s work will also include monthly vibration and lube oil analysis, risk based reporting and hardware and software support through its CBMnet internet-enabled management reporting system.

Using CBMnet, clients will be able to optimise maintenance and manage the risk to delivery of their business objectives by evaluating critical rotating machinery condition.

Hosted online, the system is managed by Petrofac’s in-house team.

Petrofac engineering and production services asset management vice-president Steve Johnson said: "We will work in alignment with Bumi Armada to transition the current maintenance strategy on-board the FPSO from preventative to predictive.

"Through this change, we will actively monitor and measure asset-specific variables that can impact and disrupt performance.

The company’s CBMnet system will provide recommendations that will optimise maintenance activities in a bid to achieve maximum production.

Petrofac provides engineering, operations, maintenance and integrity services and supports the systems and processes that influence performance on a diverse range of assets.
