BP opts for Frazer-Nash's assistance in Iraq assessment

Rumalia oil field IraqBP Iraq has chosen engineering technology firm Frazer-Nash Consultancy to provide it with technical assurance during a fitness-for-service (FFS) assessment programme on the Rumaila oil field's pressure vessels and associated equipment

The decision was made via the Rumaila Operating Organisation (ROO), a joint venture that was formed to modernise and operate the oilfield in the southern part of Iraq.

Frazer-Nash business manager for oil and gas, Simon Rees, said "This multi-year project is an important part of restoring the Rumaila field to capacity and we are proud to have been selected by BP for this task.

"We hope the techniques and methods we develop on this project will help ROO as they continue their remediation work on other parts of the asset portfolio."

The FFS assessment will look to establish the suitability and condition of the equipment currently installed in the field.

Frazer-Nash has also confirmed that it has been asked to offer assistance in developing a methodology for establishing the "appropriate levels of assessment to apply to each item" in order to help reduce costs during the field's redevelopment.
