Mellitah Complex – Repair Emergency Equipment
To fault-find and repair essential emergency equipment on Mellitah Complex – one of the world’s largest gas treatment plants. This plant treats the gas and condensate production arriving from Sabratha Offshore Platform.
This project was carried out in a high-risk, geographical location due to ongoing hostilities within the country. With all Libyan airports closed, workers required an international helicopter trip to reach the site. In addition to this challenge, the plant was live and had an extremely high concentration of hydrogen sulphide.
The activities were carried out using extremely strict ISSOW, which was managed under a dual language, this included developing a bespoke simultaneous operations procedure and specific risk assessment. Mellitah Complex was one of the only operating sites to generate revenue during this time of country conflict.
A specialist team of experts were identified and mobilised complete with their own equipment within 14 days of the project request. Remote vendor support was used in the fault-finding exercise, resulting in the equipment being restored to full designed capacity.
The team provided 24-hour cover to ensure the activities on the three emergency generator sets was completed as quickly and as safely as possible, this resulting in the project being completed without any injuries or incidents.
