SAKHALIN 1 MAJOR TURNAROUND 2016

Exxon Neftegas Limited (ENL) successfully conducted a major maintenance and modification shutdown on Sakhalin 1 project during August 2016, for which Kentech Sakhalin (KSTS) were given various scopes to complete across three of the affected facilities.  Kentech were able to offer an integrated service from detailed turnaround planning through to execution, commissioning and restart support. The major activity for KSTS was to conduct a 10yr Planned Maintenance and Testing of all of the MV and LV switchgear and MCC Panels and associated equipment at over 30 switch room locations within the Chayvo OPF facility.  

This major ‘High Risk’ activity required KSTS to mobilize an additional 70 expat personnel to execute the scope, the timing of which was very opportune for KSTS, as our colleagues in Qatar were just successfully completing a major turnaround scope, and were able to assist us in mobilizing the best of the team they had assembled to execute our scope.

This demonstrates a perfect example of Kentech’s ability to move skilled turnaround work crews from turnaround to turnaround…no matter where it is in the world…it is the skill set which counts.

Following months of careful planning, the KSTS team successfully completed all scopes of work ahead of schedule, and most importantly, without incident or injury. Continuing to enhance our reputation, as a leader in safety excellence and provider of high quality project execution. The base maintenance team were involved in many shutdown related activities, especially some ‘High Risk’ WAH on the HP/LP flares at Chayvo OPF and Berkut Platform, which stretched the team to capacity, and relied on guys giving up some, or most of their leave to achieve completion. The results of which were to successfully produce an all-round great team effort.
