1 Impact of Increased Modularization New Orleans, 27 October 2011 Guus Stigter

2 Modularization

3 Objectives of Modularization Construction of plants in a timely and cost effective way to reduce overall cost of capital projects. Old Manner: Stick build Pros:Offsite controlled fabrication area Availability of qualified labor Enhanced Safety and Quality Transport mode: Road - Waterway

4 History Modular transportation was first initiated 35 years ago. The Offshore industry uses the modular concept for years and served as an example for other industries. Some of the first on-land plants were transported and installed in the Middle East. The transport equipment used was a first generation of Modular Transporters 6m wide and 2m high. In 1984 a Self Propelled Modular Transporter (SPMT) was designed and manufactured in Germany. This trailer has a high capacity, is easy to assemble can be mobilized in a cost effective way, compared to other transport equipment.

5 Transportation SPMTs – Self-Propelled Modular Transporter

6 Motiva Refinery Expansion Method of construction – Modular  Project Motiva Refinery Expansion  LocationPort Arthur, TX  Dates2007 to 2010 Scope of Work  Transport 306 modules  Set Pipe Rack Modules with SPMT’s  Erect 5 Reactors, 900 Ton and 1 Vacuum Column 1300 Ton  Rotate 1300 Vacuum Column with Skid System  Erect 400' Flare Stack  Jack and Slide Process Modules  Test Lifts (Reactor and vacuum column), 110% load test

7 Modules Transport Pipe rack transport on SPMT

8 Modules Installation at Height Installation with false work

9 Modules Installation at Height Installation with false work

10 Woodside LNG Modules Method of construction – Modular  Project Construction of Pluto LNG Plant and all utilities  LocationLaem Chabang, Thailand, Karratha, West Australia  Dates Scope of Work  Transportation and Installation of Modules, Columns and other items of Heavy Equipment on using Self Propelled Modular Transporters, and several Heavy Lift Cranes  Max Module weight 1750 Metric Ton  First Modularized LNG Plant, 77 modules  17,000 Metric Tons

11 Woodside LNG Modules Marine Transport on Heavy Lift Vessel

12 Woodside LNG Modules Self-unloading on Anchor Bolts Roll off onto Dock

13 Installation by Crane Woodside LNG Modules

14 Modularization Challenges  Structural Integrity of Module  Designed and fabricated to withstand transport accelerations  Operational Feasibility  Dock suitability  Roll on/off operations  Vessel / barge access  Plant / Route clearances, e.g. utility clearances, pipe racks  Plant / Route compaction, e.g. allowable ground baring, culverts  Sea fastening

15 Impact of Increased Modularization  Limited know-how in industry about complex mega projects  Strategic decision making  Engineering  Management of transport modes  Increased multi-party interface  Coordination  Gaps in scope of work, responsibilities, etc.  Scarcity of qualified Self-propelled Modular Trailers operators for mega projects  ….
