Structural Reassessment and Maintenance of Existing Platforms, Baram Delta Area

Zahari B. A. Razak, George Khng


The BARAM DELTA oil fields in Sarawak, being operated by Petronas Carigali Sdn Bhd (PCSB) since 1989, have a number of platforms whose age have exceeded their design life ie. 20 years. The upkeep of these old platforms pose a challenge in terms of keeping them “fit for purpose” and yet ensuring they are safe and reliable for continued operations in the most cost effective manner.

This report presents a new re-assessment and maintenance philosophy and methodology practised by PCSB and the results on seven existing (7) platforms that have applied this approach.
