Hibernation facilities of the Offshore Castor platform

Ayesa carried out the analysis of the state of the facilities of the Underground Storage Castor (on-shore, off-shore and gas pipeline) as well as the degree of compliance with the current regulations in force.

Amongst the services was the detection of anomalies or deficiencies. Likewise, in anticipation of its next state of hibernation, an analysis of the investments to be made was made and the programming was defined to carry out modifications to the facilities.

AYESA’s scope included:

  • Inventory of equipment, its visual inspection and verification of the existence of the manufacturer's final dossiers.
  • Review of the Construction Project compared to the current facility.
  • Analysis of the list of faults delivered in the documentation of the final reception of the facility.
  • Verification of the installation of control systems (DCS), interlocking switches (ESD) along with fire and gas.
  • Review of the communication systems between ground and platform and between the facility and the system manager.
  • Analysis of the documentation drafted for the certification of the platform.
  • Visual inspection of the on-shore and off-shore metallic structures from the sea level upwards.
  • Analysis of the test dossiers of the manufacturers of the different equipment and of the field tests carried out.
  • Evaluation of the modifications required to adapt the installations to the hibernation state.
