Cuu Long Su Tu Vang Project
Mekong Basin, Vietnam
The Su Tu Vang Central Processing Platform off the coast of Vietnam was a fully
integrated engineering, procurement, construction, and installation project that
included a 4,400-ton, eight-leg jacket; 17,000-ton floatover topsides; 66-person,
1,323-ton living quarters; pipelines; umbilicals; and manifolds. The challenge
was to complete the project within 10 percent of the authorized budget while
maintaining the highest safety record.
Interfaced with the 3D design model, ConstructSim was used in reporting,
monitoring, and control of construction activity. Involvement of fabrication and
operations personnel in constructability reviews resulted in a platform design
that is optimum, well laid out, and construction- and maintenance-friendly.
In just over 22 months, the deck was ready to sail, 100 percent mechanically
complete, and fully commissioned.
2010 BE INSPIRED AWARDS
ConstructSim facilitated the fast-tracking that allowed concurrent overlapping
design and construction. In just six months from contract award, the primary
steel drawings were released for construction. Taking advantage of steel
delivery earlier than anticipated, the fabrication schedule was moved forward
by one month. Twenty-four months from the first steel-cutting ceremony, the
project produced its first oil.
