PPA Flowline Pigging Project in Mozambique

April 26, 2017 | VGI Internal - VGI Africa

The EPCM Contract for the Flowline Pigging Project for Sasol Petroleum Temane (SPT) was awarded to VGI Consulting Africa Limitada, a full affiliate of VGI Consulting (Pty) Ltd.  As previously, VGI Consulting (South Africa) will provide expertize and backup to VGI Africa (Mozambique) for the project to ensure that the required high standards of Sasol are met.

The project entails the establishment of pigging facilities for the gathering lines from the individual wellheads to the field manifolds and central process unit in Temane and Pande (Mozambique).  The project will install interchangeable pig launchers and receivers for the intelligent pigging of the existing gathering lines.  A specific challenge for the project will be the short period during the shutdown available for re-configuring of existing piping on some of the manifolds and wellheads.

This project follows the very successful completion of the Republic of Mozambique Pipeline Company (ROMPCO) Loopline 2 Project.  The ROMPCO Loopline 2 Project was completed at the end of 2016 within the required schedule and well below budget by the VGI Africa and VGI Consulting team.

We are happy to announce that the 127 km gas Loopline on the MSP Pipeline was successfully commissioned Wednesday evening (2 November 2016). The commissioning was done by Sasol on behalf of ROMPCO with the assistance of VGI Consulting Africa lead by Charl vd Berg and the VGI site team.

The 500 kW gas heater, designed by VGI and manufactured and supplied by Energas, played a significant role in the line being commissioned ahead of schedule and in a safe manner.

The present BBBEE rating is Level 1 but this is expected to deteriorate when a new audit is carried out in April 2017, based on the new scorecards.
