Xodus Group has bagged two contracts for acoustic induced vibration fatigue assessments of its Tengiz complex from TengizChevrOil (TCO) in Kazakhstan.
The first contract will have Xodus delivering screen assessments for the relief systems on a new high pressure steam plant, and will eventually expand to include detailed finite element analyses of fittings identified to be at risk of fatigue failure.
The second contract is larger and will follow on from similar previous work on the blowdown systems for the Tengiz plant facilities. Xodus’ vibration engineering team will provide a three month scope of work with detailed assessments of recommended remedial measures to improve the predicted fatigue life including analysis of numerous additional, potentially at risk, welded fittings.
Xodus vibration is a specialist service providing to a number of oil and gas operators worldwide. Through this service, they provide assurances about the actual levels of risk and thereby recommend validated remedial measures.
