This Capability Document establishes Worleys credentials for providing engineering support services on Subsea and Pipeline Projects Worldwide. Worley is ideally suited to provide these engineering support services because Worley has the: Experienced people technical capability track record local knowledge project systems

to deliver a best-in-class result for the work contemplated.


Technical Capability

The requirements for new projects in the modern oil and gas market are many and varied. Facilities are required to have maximum availability with low associated risk and may be designed on fast tracked schedules. Add to this the often marginal economics of small field developments and the ever-present budget constraints and a true challenge is born. Such developments require constant innovation to take them from the initial concept to being installed and operational. Statements such as this is how we did it on the last job or we always do it this way have no place in modern oil and gas projects. Attitudes such as these have, in the past, led to over-specified systems that quickly expend the limited budget whilst providing only minimal improvements in availability and/or reductions in risk. Worley considers the questioning of old paradigms as a normal part of the design process. Worley has been responsible for all phases of offshore oil and gas pipeline projects from initial screening studies through to detailed design, fabrication/installation, operation and decommissioning. Projects have been carried out in all of the major oil and gas producing areas worldwide. Worley has consistently demonstrated an incisive understanding of the operator's needs and of the best approach to provide the optimum solution. Worley ensure that its design process considers the construction aspects of the project, together with the logistics of transporting equipment to site. This approach is extended by our belief in using life-cycle costs when evaluating development optimisation alternatives. Consequently, Worley always consider the impact on maintenance and operability when selecting the optimum design. Worley has one of the most impressive track records for the design of new pipeline developments. Worleys technical and commercial understanding of the existing infrastructure enables Worley to identify the most feasible facility configuration. Worleys depth and breadth of design expertise, together with Worleys knowledge of complementary disciplines such as exploration, petroleum engineering and production-operations, results in an ability to evaluate design options quickly and to

000/00000/0 : Rev A : 16 February 2004


select the optimum solution. Worley is then in a position to develop the preferred configuration through to the completion of the project.


Range of Services

In the 1980s, Worley joined forces with Wholohan Grill & Partners, Australias most respected structural consultant in the oil and gas sector. As the activities of the two companies grew and projects undertaken became larger and increasingly multi-disciplined, the companies merged and now operate under the Worley name. Today, Worley is a world leader in offshore projects from the conception and design of some of the smallest offshore oil and gas structures (e.g. Perch and Dolphin monotowers in Bass Strait), through to the engineering of many of the largest offshore projects (e.g. Bayu-Undan platforms in the Timor Sea). Worley has played, and continues to play, an integral role in the offshore oil and gas industry throughout the world. Worleys proven expertise, innovative engineering and resources enable Worley to remain at the forefront of the industry. Amongst the range of services which the Worley Oil and Gas Group provides are: Feasibility and economic studies Field development studies Concept development Preliminary and detailed design Installation studies Material selection studies Preparation of tender documentation and procurement services Preparation of fabrication and installation procedures and subsequent construction and installation supervision/assistance Procurement services EPC Project management services Alliance partnerships with fabrication, construction and installation contractors to provide full EPC services Commissioning assistance together with operations and maintenance services Subsea repairs and intervention activities Field abandonment studies

Onshore Reception Facilities

Worley has been servicing the onshore oil and gas industry since the 1970s. Worley has in-depth experience of all aspects - engineering, procurement, construction and management of onshore facilities. This includes the treatment of hydrocarbon gases and liquids both for upstream facilities and for downstream petrochemical projects. Many onshore developments are phased over an extended period. Upgrades, such as the addition of compression facilities, are planned for implementation during later field life. Major unplanned upgrades can also be necessary to resolve operating change, such as, wellstream compositions and the allowable concentration of effluent contaminants. The skills in the Worley group allow the following issues to be addressed : Site selection Inlet separation and slug catching Gas conditioning and dewpointing CO2 removal and disposal Refrigeration systems Gas-liquids stabilisation or fractionation LPG recovery LPG and condensate storage Product transportation Water separation, treatment and disposal Associated utilities and services Flow assurance and/or enhancement Control and safeguarding systems Electrical generation Advanced analysis

Benchmark projects have included the UGS gas processing plant in western Victoria and the restoration of the Longford Gas Plant in Gippsland, Victoria.

The Subsea and Pipelines Group works seamlessly closely in integrated teams with the other Worley engineering groups to ensure that the capabilities and expertise of the specific disciplines are effectively applied to produce optimum project solutions. The activities of the Worley Subsea and Pipelines Group are complementary to the broader activities of Worley within the offshore oil and gas industry, and provide the opportunity for Worley to complete the full range of work associated with an offshore project, thereby simplifying the interfaces that the client needs to manage.



Over the years the Worley Subsea and Pipelines Group has established a reputation for the development and successful application of innovative approaches to meet the technical and economic challenges of offshore projects. Some of these innovations represent major changes in the application of technology by the oil and gas industry, on a regional and worldwide basis, such as: Reeled pipe-in-pipe systems Composite pipeline insulation coatings Flexible risers from fixed platforms Combined pipeline pullhead/plough Sophisticated assessment of pipeline spans Proprietary heave compensation systems for deep water applications

These developments in technology have delivered significant savings in project life cycle costs, for both new development projects, where a new concept and design has been generated, and for existing projects, where the use of specialist technology has been applied to limit the scope and cost of remedial work.


Lower Costs

The Worley Subsea and Pipelines Group incorporates the four important elements of an engineering team required to best meet the economic challenges of contemporary subsea projects, these being: Local field and project experience Broad range of multidisciplinary skills Extensive cost databases An independent perspective.

Cost Estimating

Worley has an extensive database of real project costs and their associated benchmark costs and factors. This information is brought together by the Worley Estimating System (WES). The effectiveness of WES is demonstrated by the fact that actual EPC tender prices have typically been within a few percent of the WES produced estimates. Worley bring proven risk weighting tools to minimize contingency allowances in project estimates. Capital cost estimates are required at various phases of project development for the following reasons: ranking of options being investigated during scouting/feasibility studies, project proposals and justification for further development, project sanctioning and preparation of project budgets, counter estimating for procurement/tendering to ensure tendered prices are reasonable and in accordance with the scope,

Subsea & Pipelines Capability Profile.doc

000/00000/0 : Rev A : 16 February 2004


budget control during construction on very large projects.

The information available will depend on the stage of the project, and amount of engineering work completed at the time. This determines the expected accuracy of the estimate.


Project Controls and Reporting

Worley has extensive understanding of and experience in the application and use of project controls for major projects, primarily using the proprietary application InControl. InControl is the Companys standard project control tool and has been successfully used on multi million dollar projects such as Bayu-Undan, Iona compressor station, Longford compressor station projects, and Esso Longford projects. InControl is an integrated suite of Project Management applications that has been designed for project teams that manage complex projects. Based on the principle of Cost, Time and Resources (CTR) management, InControl is a project 'Lifecycle' management tool that provides the capability to independently manage and report the status of multiple deliverables, tasks and resources assigned to a specific activity. Detailed status information can then be rolled up to various levels within InControl and transferred to higher-level applications such as Primavera P3. The table below gives a summary of Worleys approach to each of the key areas of project control and how InControl is utilised.

Aspect of Control a. Project Budgets, Control Estimates, Project Cost Control

Worley System InControl is used for estimating and budget preparation, cost control and forecasting. Estimates are built on in-house databases and software systems. InControl is used as a tool to manage these issues of Project Control. The key aspects to consider are physical progress measurement, forecast cost to complete and continuous project monitoring. Both Primavera P3 and InControl are used for project planning. A link between these software packages allows the user to export/import data from/to InControl. Primavera P3 is used to create detailed schedules with relationships between activities and is used to establish the critical path.

Aspect of Control d. Management and Control of Change Worley System The InControl Change Control Module is used for management and control of change providing a complete record of change requests and approvals. InControl allows the user to breakdown the project to the level of detail required using WBS codes. InControl has a Document Control Module that is integrated with the other modules to share deliverables information and is used for document control reporting. The Project Controls Module and Progress Update Module are used to update and track progress. The Change Control Module in InControl is used to manage contingency. It allows the user to manage contingency with a complete record of any cost transfers. Contingency is rundown against earned progress to a formula agreed with the client. InControl can generate reports to suit specific business needs at both the detailed and summary level.

In addition, the Subsea and Pipelines Group has developed a General Mechanical Design Package, which is an in-house developed software package utilizing Excel and VBA with the capabilities of performing the Mechanical Design of the pipeline. All modules include the latest codes including DnV OS F101 (and associated Guidelines and Classification), AS 2885 and ASME B31.8. This includes: Stability - methods include DnV RP E305 simplified method, DnV RP E305 generalised method, Quasi Static on bottom and trenched stability Spans Pressure Containment Buckling In Situ Stress Cathodic Protection Expansion VIV Fatigue

Worley is currently developing a finite element package to enable further optimization of the stability requirements of the pipeline. This program will be able to model and record the response of a subsea pipeline as a 100 year storm passes over it. The finite element package will also enable Worley to accurately model trawler impacts and the potential damage to the pipeline. The General Design Package will enable Worley to provide solutions to pipeline design utilizing the latest codes. The finite element packages will enable Worley to further optimize the solution and hence could lead to a significant cost savings in pipeline installation and operations. Commercial software utilised by the other disciplines that could potentially be involved in this project is outlined below.

SBM and Pipeline Preliminary Design


Clough Engineering for Petroleum Refineries (Australia) Pty Ltd


Port Stanvac, South Australia March, 1990


Analysis and design of a single buoy mooring system for 150,000 DWT tankers. Installation methods for a subsea pipeline.


Petroleum Refineries (Australia) Pty Ltd proposed to extend their existing crude oil loading and bunkering lines and install a new SBM mooring system at Port Stanvac to accommodate larger tankers. Preliminary mooring analyses were performed using the AQWA suite of programs in order to establish the maximum SBM excursions and anchor loads under normal and extreme operating conditions. Results from the analyses led to the conclusion that composite wire and chain mooring lines for the SBM would provide the necessary restraint whilst minimising buoy excursions, anchor loads and overall costs.

Alternative methods for installing the 2.5km long 36 inch and 16 inch pipeline extensions were identified and evaluated. On and off bottom tow together with conventional laybarge installation methods were assessed. Site visits were made to establish the feasibility of constructing a towed pipeline fabrication site. Preliminary design for the Pipe Line End Manifold (PLEM) and hose configurations were developed, taking into account results from the mooring analysis. Both gravity and pile based anchoring systems were considered. Overall project costs were estimated and submitted to PRA.

Alternatives to San Diego River Outfalls


City of San Diego, Metropolitan Waste Water District


San Diego, California 1992



Outfall Boundaries and Layout, Review Site Specific Data, Preliminary System Hydraulic Analysis, Prepare Geological and Geotechnical Profiles, Identify Environmental Concerns

D E S C R I P T I O N:

Project Description
The San Diego River Outfall (SDRO) is an outfall planned to be sited off the coast of San Diego to discharge an average of 109 million gallons per day of treated effluent from up to five water reclamation plants constructed within San Diego County. The outfall design developed by Worley in association with a major US engineering consultant called for a 5.5-mile-long, 8-foot diameter tunnel from a headwork's facility onshore to the seabed diffuser pipeline system offshore. The diffuser system, as planned, was to be located within two to three miles of some of San Diegos popular swimming beaches including Ocean Beach and Mission Beach. To alleviate the publics concerns about the outfall siting and to support the environmental documentation, the City of San Diegos Planning Department requested that alternative discharge options to the SDRO be assessed. The Clean Water Program, responsible for administration of the project, subsequently commissioned the Worley-led team to investigate in detail seven alternatives to the SDRO. Included amongst the alternatives were new outfalls at Del Mar and La Jolla, as well as connections to the proposed South Bay Outfall and to the extended Point Loma Outfall. The concept of inland storage was also addressed by the team.

The scope and objectives of the study performed by Worley were as follows: Define outfall boundaries and layout for each location, including diffuser and headwork siting and tunnel alignment. Review site-specific data for each outfall scheme, including oceanographic, geotechnical, geographical and environmental data. Carry out preliminary system hydraulic analysis for each alternative to determine diffuser configuration and tunnel diameter.

Prepare geological and geotechnical profiles for each alternative and identify principal geotechnical issues associated with tunnel and shaft construction. For each alternative, identify environmental concerns, propose construction procedures, and prepare cost estimates and preliminary construction schedules. The study examined several tunnel alignments and profiles for each alternative. Evaluation of tunnel alignments required consideration of shaft siting, geotechnical conditions and easement acquisition. Over 50 miles of tunnel with diameters ranging from 7.5 feet to 12 feet were assessed in determining feasibility and cost-effectiveness of options. Both soft rock and soft ground tunnel boring technology were considered in developing construction costs estimates. In assessing outfall performance, Worley undertook preliminary system hydraulic evaluation of each outfall option including headloss calculations, anti-seawater intrusion and purging requirements. The results of the study were presented in a detailed report. The preferred alternative to the San Diego River Outfall was determined to be a tunnel to Point Loma with a connection to the extended seabed 12-feet diameter pipeline Point Loma Outfall.

NRA Trunkline Stabilisation Project


Woodside Offshore Petroleum

North West Shelf, Western Australia November 1991


Supervision and technical assistance for stabilisation design, physical modelling of armoured berm stability and sediment/pipeline interaction and QA/QC during construction.


Severe tropical cyclonic activity on the North West Shelf resulted in significant scour, spanning and lateral displacements of the 40 trunkline. This left the trunkline in an unstable configuration requiring remedial stabilisation. Work included the supervision of the design process and design optimisation based upon physical modelling of the armour stability and rock berm/seabed interaction. During the construction phase; including quarry production, load out onto fall pipe vessels (Trollness and Rocky Giant), and placement by these vessels; quality control of rock production and placement was ongoing to ensure minimal impact on the construction program.

Following completion of the remedial stabilisation work, a detailed investigation including numerical modelling of pipeline seabed interaction was undertaken. Forming part of a number of studies, this investigation was required to assess the vulnerability of undumped areas of pipeline to the initiation of scour. The unique nature of the trunkline, including the environmental conditions and seabed characteristics, along with the unique engineering investigations required for this project, resulted in the Woodside project team receiving an Engineering Excellence Award from I.E. Aust. in 1992.

Legendre Oil Offloading Pipeline Design


Apache Energy North West Shelf 1999


Detailed Design of Offloading Pipeline

Apache Energy, in conjunction with Woodside Offshore Petroleum, are developing the Legendre oil field on the North West Shelf of West Australia. The field is located on a subsea plateau in approximately 50m of water, and will include production and offloading facilities. These export system facilities comprise an oil pipeline, pipeline end manifold (PLEM), flexible riser and a catenary anchored leg mooring (CALM) offloading buoy.
W O R L E Y S C O P E:

The conditions at Legendre are not conducive to pipeline stability because of the presence of cyclones, relatively shallow water, probable marine growth and a calcareous seabed. These factors resulted in the requirement for heavy walled, concrete coated pipe with stabilisation mattresses at each end to minimise pipeline movement at the tie-in points. The recommended installation method is based upon an off-bottom tow from the Mardi Station fabrication site in NW Australia. This site and method were successfully used for the installation of other flowlines. As part of the installation process, the off-bottom tow will cross the existing NRA trunkline. To confirm the technical risks of the towed crossing operation are acceptable, a series of model tests were performed at the UWA testing facilities. Worley devised and managed these tests which simulate the interaction between ballast chains and the protective rock berm.

Worley Limited performed the detailed mechanical and hydraulic design of the 2.5km long oil offloading pipeline which connects the production platform to the CALM buoy. The oil storage strategy had yet to be finalised at the time of engineering hence two pipeline configurations had to be considered to allow for the storage and non storage cases. The mechanical and hydraulic analyses resulted in 8" and 24" pipelines being required for the nonstorage and storage cases respectively.

Hong Kong SSDS Stage II Outfall - Preliminary Project Feasibility Study


Hong Kong SSDS Stage II Outfall - Preliminary Project Feasibility Study


Hong Kong December, 1999

Develop alternative outfall configurations, assess outfall hydraulics, design features and construction issues and compare outfall configurations.


The Strategic Sewage Study (SSS) for Hong Kong developed an overall strategy for the collection, treatment and disposal of sewage for the whole of Hong Kong. A major component of the system is the Strategic Sewage Disposal Scheme (SSDS) for the Victoria Harbor and South West Hong Kong Island area. Stage II of the SSDS includes the construction of the Stage II Outfall running from the eastern side of Lamma Island approximately southeast for several kilometers and terminating in a diffuser through which effluent will be discharged to the ocean. As part of the preliminary project feasibility study for Stage II of the SSDS, Worley were engaged to perform an assessment of a number of alternative outfall configurations which have been proposed. These configurations can be broadly categorized as: Tunneled multiriser outfalls Buried conduit (or immersed tube) outfalls

roughness values assumed for calculation of conduit friction losses. For each of these preliminary design configurations, address some of the more important features of the outfall in greater detail. Identify the most important construction-related issues and challenges associated with each of the three outfall configurations listed above. Potential methods of constructing the major outfall components were developed, described and illustrated and a number of issues were highlighted that cannot be fully resolved at this point but which must be considered as the design proceeds. Document a comparison of each of the outfall configurations with respect to a set of criteria, and present some recommendations regarding the configuration that should be adopted for the Stage II Outfall.

Tunneled outfalls with buried conduit diffusers. Worleys scope of work consisted of: Develop preliminary configurations and details of each of the outfall types listed above. Evaluate the hydraulic performance and behavior of each outfall type with respect to a number of criteria including driving head, purging flows and anti-intrusion flows. In addition, address issues such as; (a) potential for and magnitude of surges in the outfall; (b) emergency overflow to the old Stage I Outfall, along with the smaller adjacent Northwest Kowloon Outfall (NWKO); (c) tide levels which should be considered in calculating outfall driving head requirements; and (d)

East Spar Pipeline Stabilisation


East Spar Alliance (Western Mining Corp., Kvaerner RJ Brown, Clough Engineering J.V.)

Varanus Island, Western Australia. October 1995


Design advice on the nature of wave breaking and resultant pipeline loadings due to wave and current induced water particle velocities in the breaking zone. State of the art two-dimensional numerical modelling was used to obtain design data.


This project required pipeline loading design advice for the 0.5m diameter product pipeline route in the region of the reef edge west of Varanus Island (near Barrow Island). Desk top analysis methods indicated extensive regions of plunging wave breaking conditions, which would normally necessitate numerous closely spaced anchors. In addition the unknown characteristics of the wave induced water particle velocity field under these conditions would have resulted in conservative design, or the requirement to trench or bury the pipeline.

By initiating further work on environmental design criteria and the use of a previously verified state of the art free surface principle two dimensional numerial model, the nature and extent of wave breaking was defined for various pipeline routes and wave/water level combinations. Detailed model output of velocities and accelerations allowed calculation of pipeline loadings to an accuracy comparable to that previously only obtained by near-full scale modelling.

I nsp ectio n and T esting o f Fib er glass Diffuser s & Riser s

D E S C R I P T I O N:

The worlds largest ocean outfall for the disposal of treated wastewater is currently under construction in Boston. The project is part of the Massachusetts Water Resources Authoritys $6.1 billion effort to clean up Boston Harbor. The outfall will consist of a 9.5 mile long 24 ft diameter tunnel some 230 ft under the seafloor connecting to a system of vertical risers and diffusers in 110 ft depth of water. There are a total of 55 risers, each with a diffuser structure which will disperse an average of 500 million gallons per day of treated effluent into Massachusetts Bay. Worley was the designer of the risers, diffusers and associated seabed engineering work. To meet the 100-year design life objectives for the project, Worley selected fiber reinforced plastic (FRP) for manufacturing the risers and diffusers. The final design called for the manufacture of almost 13,000 ft of thick-walled filament wound FRP tubulars (30inch diameter) and 57 complex eight-arm FRP diffusers. Because of the unique design features and use of non-traditional construction materials, Worley specified a stringent and comprehensive series of quality control requirements including an acoustic emission (AE) test for the FRP fabrication contract. Worley provided technical support to the FRP manufacturer and assisted in the Worley supervised the field inspection and testing program at the FRP manufacturing plant. The following activities, procedures and tests required Worley review and approval as part of the overall construction program: Prototype riser pipe manufacture to verify production procedures and material compliance Operator and laminator test to verify capability and qualification Ignition loss tests and hardnes tests on FRP laminate

External pressure test on all completed FRP diffuser manifolds in conjunction with AE monitoring Bending tests of 10% of production risers in conjunction with strain and AE monitoring

In order for ESSO to re-start the wells Phase 1 of the project required the recovery of each control pod, installation of a protective cover pod onto the SSTs, disconnection and recovery to deck of each control umbilical, electrical testing and re-lay of the umbilical next to the SST. The work was performed completely diverless using a dynamically positioned vessel as the work platform. A heave compensated crane (Surface Deployment System or SDS) was used for the pod work with the aid of an ROV. Awarded: February 1999 Umbilical Recovery

Control Pod Recovery Key Outcomes Worley developed equipment, installation aids and procedures to perform the work completely diverless. Retrieving the umbilicals was a significant achievement as the umbilical connections were designed for diver intervention and had been subsea for 10 years. Contingency procedures were identified early in the project and enabled the offshore programme to be performed without incident or schedule delay. The project was completed to meet Essos very tight schedule, from the kick-off meeting to the beginning of the offshore phase was nine (9) weeks. The offshore phase was then completed in two (2) weeks, including demobilisation.

BHP Petroleum - Griffin Field Subsea Work

Project Outline The A$600 million Griffin facility is located 68km NW of Onslow, Western Australia. The field, which came on stream in November 1993 includes a FPSO, riser turret mooring (RTM), 4 subsea distribution skids, 9 subsea wells and a gas sales line to an onshore gas plant. The subsea distribution skids acted as manifolds to distribute lift gas and electrohydraulic control functions to up to 4 wells in each of 4 sectors. The sales gas pipeline consisted of a 200NB flexible riser, a pipeline end manifold (PLEM) incorporating a removable subsea pig launcher followed by 65km of 200NB rigid pipeline. Design oil production was 80,000 BPD and design gas production about 40 terajoules per day. Awarded: February 1993

Worley Scope Worley was involved in several aspects of the Griffin project including detailed design of subsea hardware, supervision of manufacture and supervision of installation as detailed below: Supervision, engineering and project management for the pipeline end manifold (PLEM) and subsea pig launcher which was manufactured in Singapore. Detailed design of the Griffin manifolds (Subsea Distribution Skids or SSDS). Preparation of specifications and scope of work for the SSDS manufacture. Detailed design and drafting of equipment for connection of the subsea umbilicals to the subsea trees. Preparation of detailed engineering procedures for the pull-in and connection of the umbilicals to the trees. Review of the installation contractors installation manual. General offshore installation supervision (and in particular the umbilical tie-ins). Supervision of the PLEM installation from semisubmersible drilling rig. Preparation of procedures for the installation and operation of the PLEM and subsea pig launcher.
