2 ABOUT BDPCalgary Based Integrated EPC Company specialized in heat tracingHolds APEGGA Permit to PracticeOffices In Calgary & Edmonton25 Full Time Employees & 5 Engineering Consultants on “As Needed” BasisDeveloped Internal Quality Program
3 ABOUT BDP – continued Safety is a core value at BDP Good references with Alberta clientsDesigned steam tracing facilities on all Petro-Canada projects in Alberta since 2002 as subcontractor to large EPC firmsKey People:Tony Miletic – 25 years of experience in piping design, last 15 years in steam tracingDrago Crnogorac – over 25 years in project management
4 ABOUT BDP – continued Construction Capabilities BDP Industrial – BDP’s construction group engaged for work at modularization shop or at site with non-union or CLAC laborSubcontract NewFab Industries at mod shop or at site where union labor is required
6 WHAT ARE ADVANTAGES AND VALUE-ADD OF USING A SPECIALIZED INTEGRATED EPC COMPANY TO EXECUTE HEAT TRACING PORTION OF THE PROJECT?
7 HEAT TRACING ON LARGE PROJECTS Total Installed Cost of heat tracing facilities can be significant on mega projects in AlbertaBDP’s experienced staff could support large EPC firm during FEED with more accurate scoping of heat tracing facilitiesBDP’s input during front-end design improves the overall accuracy of FEED cost estimates with lower risk of changes during detailed design and lower schedule impact.
9 BDP ARE HEAT TRACING SPECIALISTS We are specialized in heat tracing design, engineering and installationWe have experience on large projects as subcontractor to large EPC firmsLeadership skills of our key people will ensure quality and "fit for purpose" design
10 BDP IS SMALL AND EFFICIENT We are small, flexible and react fastWe are very efficient – no wasted hoursWe plan our activities well and we stay on schedule and on budgetWe have proven track record on previous heat tracing projects
12 INTEGRATED EPC APPROACH TO HEAT TRACING Front-End DesignBDP can provide design input at the front-end of the project (number and layout of steam and condensate manifolds is particularly important at this stage)Constructability input in early design stagesOur front-end design input leads to accurate and complete scope definitionWell defined scope results in accurate cost estimate
13 INTEGRATED EPC APPROACH TO HEAT TRACING -continued Detail Engineering and ProcurementOur detailed and organized approach to executing design activities results in quality and fit-for-purpose designRegular constructability input and review meetings are held during detail designWe keep track of our progress, measure performance during detail design and make corrections where necessaryProcurement and expediting of heat tracing material
14 INTEGRATED EPC APPROACH TO HEAT TRACING -continued ConstructionEffective close-out of detailed design and transition to installation phaseInstallation of heat tracing facilities in the module shop and on siteBDP construction group uses non-union affiliated DHL on siteBDP’s sub-contractor NewFab will execute all union work on siteBDP design office will provide on-site engineering support to our construction team
15 INTEGRATED EPC APPROACH TO HEAT TRACING -continued Fabrication – Cost AdvantageSteam/Condensate Manifolds and Piping fabrication overseas via association with a fabrication shop in South-East Europe for further cost advantage
17 QUALITY AND SAFETYBDP has Quality Program and follows internally established quality proceduresIf subcontracted by another EPC firm BDP could follow the firm’s quality program for consistency if necessarySafety is a core value at BDP. We apply safety principles from front-end and detailed design and procurement to constructionLessons Learned program used on projectsManifold Control Sheet on PC EDD has minimum information and four manifolds per sheet. On RCP1.1 there is one manifold per sheet with a lot of data.
19 OUR LOCATIONDetailed design and engineering of tracing facilities will be executed by a dedicated team located in our downtown Calgary office with support from our Edmonton office team.Office in Edmonton - proximity to refinery sites for field visits, verifications and construction supportAt about 85% completion of the project designers are gone to other projects, other companies or simply were laid off to cut the cost (huge number of hours were burned at the beginning of the projects with no or very little effect and those hours are missing at the end of the project). NEW PEOPLE BROUGHT TO FINISH THE PROJECT HAVE DIFFICULTIES TO CATCH THE LOOSE ENDS.
21 DESIGN BASIS AND PROJECT SET-UP BDP needs the following data to carry out detailed heattracing design:P&ID and Line List3D ModelPiping Isometrics in AutoCad formatEquipment List and LayoutData transfer through FTP connection.Regular project progress meetings are encouraged.
23 REFERENCES Petro-Canada RCP project Design and Engineering of all steam tracing facilities.Produced over 15,000 engineering documents and worked off 50,000 hours over 18 months.Work completed on schedule and under budget.Petro Canada EDD Project, Edmonton ABProvided Steam Tracing design and Steam Tracing construction support on ISBL Plant 63 and construction support on OSBL. Produced more than 2000 documents ahead of schedule and within the budget. Significantly improved Steam Tracing construction phase by introducing two additional types of documents: Steam Tracing Circuit Log and Manifold Installation Drawing. These documents have become the main reference documents for the construction crew.
