36” Dual Starting Head

This procedure describes the installation of the 36” Nom Dual Starting Head to the 36” conductor.

Note: It is essential that the 36” Dual Starting Heads are installed with the correct orientation relative to platform north. The orientation of the starting heads will control the installed positions of the Wellheads and Horizontal Xmas Tree.

The following equipment and tools are required to perform this procedure:

INSTALLATION PROCEDURE

1.1.1.3

Preparation

36”, 1” wall conductor. The conductor must be prepared for the installation of the starting head. This can be accomplished by building a habitat around the conductor. You must grind down the weld seam on the OD of the 36” conductor for a length of 18” from the top down. This can be done by flushing the conductor with water as you grind. DO NOT grind seam down flat. Maintain the contour of the OD of the conductor as the weld seam is ground down (Figure 1.1-1).

Remove the two 1 1/4” eyebolts from the dual starting head.

Lift the Temporary junk cap off and set aside.

1.1.1.4 Visually inspect dual starting head for any damage, especially the threads and sealing areas.

Visually inspect dual starting head for any damage, especially the threads and
sealing areas.
1.1.1.5
Ensure all slip energizing nuts on bottom Starting heads are fully backed out and
this shoulders with the retainer ring
1.1.1.6
Re-install and tightly make up the two 1 1/4" eyebolts.
1.1.1.7
Install shackles and slings to the eyebolts.
1.1.1.8
Cut the 36” conductor as per customer specification, please take note that the
recommended distance from the Conductor to the Platform deck is 31.00”
(787mm). This operation is to be conducted by the operator and the elevation is
to be confirmed by the operator. Ensure that the conductor is beveled on the OD.
1.1.1.9
Mark a vertical line on the conductor’s platform north. The dual starting head has
two 1/2” wide orientation slots machined vertically on its OD at locations 180
apart. One or other of these slots must be aligned with the line marked on the
conductor, or by other method, the line passing through these two slots must be
aligned to platform North (Figure 1.1-2).
1.1.2
Installation of 36” Dual Starting Head (Figure 1.1-2- Figure 1.1-5)
1.1.2.1
Pick up and orientate the dual starting head such that the orientation slots are in
line with the vertical line marked on the 36” conductor. Ensure the starting head is
aligned with platform north as shown in (Figure 1.1-2).

Lower the starting head slowly over the 36” conductor until it lands. Pick up again if necessary for fine alignment with platform North.

Temporarily remove the eyebolts. Observe through each bore of the starting head that it is positioned centrally on the conductor and that the ID of the conductor does not present an edge at either bore.

1.1.2.4 Should and edge be presented, as shown in (Figure 1.1-3), mark the area of overlap edge, lift off the starting head and set aside, then remove the overlap by grinding for a minimum of 18 inches length from the top of the conductor. (Note:

this operation may or may not be necessary depending on the tolerance of the 36” conductor).

1.1.2.5 Pressure test O-ring Seal through the Starting Head test port to 500 PSI.

1.1.2.6 In the event that the O-ring Seals do not test, bleed off test pressure, then apply a straight upward pull to lift the Starting Head to clear the 36” conductor. Inspect

the 36” conductor OD and dress up if necessary. Inspect the O-ring Seals and replace if necessary. Repeat steps 1.1.2 to reinstall the Starting Head.

1.1.2.7 Loosen the two 1” nom Nuts on the slip bowl by rotating 4 turns to the left (counter-clockwise). This will allow the slips to move thus biting the conductor.

1.1.2.8 Make up the slips energizing nuts evenly to 300 ft-lbf.
