Transocean GSF Grand Banks Maintenance and Refit, Bull Arm, Newfoundland & Labrador

GlobalSantaFe Glomar Grand Banks Maintenance and Refit (Bay Bulls, NL)

Description:
Pennecon Energy was awarded the GSF Grand Banks refit contract by Transocean to repair and modify the GSF Grand Banks – a thruster assisted, semi-submersible drill rig rated for 1,500 ft water depth and a drilling depth of 25,000 ft. contracted to drill offshore Newfoundland by Husky Energy.

The refit work took place at Nalcor Energy’s mooring site in Bull Arm, NL, and included architectural, piping, structural steel, electrical, instrumentation, hydraulic and mechanical personnel and equipment. Specifically, we removed, inspected, overhauled and installed the drilling systems and equipment, as well as took measures to preserve the existing hull, including surface blasting and painting steel surfaces, including columns, deck areas and tanks.

To ensure the project remained on schedule, Pennecon Energy began prefabrication work in advance of the GSF Grand Banks’ arrival to Bull Arm and Pennecon Energy’s Project Management Team provided all necessary labor to mobilize equipment, scaffolding, heavy equipment and cranes to support the project. The team included project managers, planning and scheduling engineering, construction management and supervision, quality and safety professionals, cost management and field engineering.

Henry Goodrich Refit (Bull Arm, NL)

Description:
Pennecon Energy was awarded the Henry Goodrich refit contract by Transocean to repair and modify the Henry Goodrich – a thruster assisted, semi-submersible drill rig rated for 5,000 ft water depth and a drilling depth of 30,000 ft. contracted to drill offshore Newfoundland by Husky Energy.

The refit work took place at Nalcor Energy’s mooring site in Bull Arm, NL and included architectural, piping, structural steel, electrical, instrumentation, hydraulic and mechanical personnel and equipment. We continue to remove, inspect, overhaul and install identified systems and equipment, as well replace anodes, the Life Boat Hydraulic Controls, and the Top Drive Changeout.

Before the rig’s arrival to Bull Arm, Pennecon Energy began in-situ survey work to ensure we were as prepared as possible for work at the project site. Our Project Management Team provided all necessary labor to mobilize equipment, scaffolding, heavy equipment and cranes to support the project. The team included project managers, planning and scheduling engineering, construction management and supervision, quality and safety professionals, cost management and field engineering.

Vale / Voisey's Bay Project, Voisey's Bay, Newfoundland & Labrador

Description:
The Vale / Voisey's Bay 2013 Electrical Maintenance project entailed a full electrical equipment overhaul. Our skilled team performed electrical maintenance on all the electrical distribution equipment as part of a broader schedule of work, and personnel and various pieces of equipment were shipped in via air. We also planned extensive work schedules to coordinate the inspection with site management and the multiple other contractors on site. Overall, we inspected and tested

  • All 600 volt breakers
  • All protection relays
  • All transformers
  • All 4160 volt motor starters
  • All 4160 volt vacuum breakers

At the end of the project, we provided a full report complete with all test sheet data to the client to verify the integrity of the work performed. All equipment was energized successfully without any safety issues.

Pennecon Energy Industrial Services (PEIS) Projects

Alberta Horizon Oilsands Project, Horizon Site, Alberta

Alberta Horizon Oilsands Project (Horizon Site, AB)

Description:
This project was completed by Pennecon Energy, through our Alberta based subsidiaries Penney Industrial Fabricators Ltd. (PIFL) and NewFab Ltd. on behalf of Canadian Natural Resources Ltd. (CNRL) at the northern Alberta Horizon Oilsands Site, Froth Treatment Plant.

Our team installed support steel and legs for the 14 Incline Plate Separators (IPS Tanks), assembled the prefabricated sections of the 14 IPS Tanks (7 pieces per tank) and installed the assembled IPS Tanks. In addition to the actual IPS Tanks, the work scope also included installing pumps, stair towers, and associated platforms/ handrails/ladders.

We were also responsible for installing 15 IPS Pipe Rack Modules and connecting the piping between these Modules. Following the fabrication and installation work, Pennecon Energy’s subsidiary Pennecon Energy Hydraulic Systems (PEHS) completed hydro testing on all 14 IPS Tanks, including all the associated interconnection piping.

As a part of CNRL's $10.8 billion dollar Horizon Project, the project began in the spring of 2006 and was completed in December 2007. Our 25 person PIFL team coordinated and managed a multi-union labor force of some 350 craft labourers.
