Buzzard / Golden Eagle

Telic Engineering received a request from client MTU Power to represent them and support two rotations of each three weeks duration offshore at the Buzzard and Golden Eagle platform operated by their customer CNOOC.

This occurred during the Covid-19 crisis developments and risks were mitigated by being tested prior to each rotation and obeying the actions with regards to social distancing, and hygiene.

The goal of these rotations was to support CNOOC crew during their daily operation and maintenance tasks, identify, correct findings, and report these daily. Specifically this was done for the GE LM2500+ G4 gasturbine power generation and related auxiliaries.

The results of these rotations was, together with the MTU engineers supporting other rotations, that:

  • Numerous recommendation were identified, and resolved;
  • An overview of these were created and maintained in a so called action tracker;
  • Standard operating procedures written to support the crew in performing unfamiliar tasks;
  • Method statements written for further actions to be taken in the future.

The overall result is that the reliability of power generation offshore has been improved.
