oil and gas offshore platform

what is a platform? The oil and gas contained in the bowels of the earth turned out to be not only below the land but also below the seabed. To take it, of course, we need an equipment (structure) supporting with advanced technology that can survive the fierce sea waves. Offshore platforms are structures or buildings built offshore to support the exploration or exploitation of oil and gas. Usually, offshore platforms have a drilling rig that functions to analyze the geological properties of the reservoir and to make holes that allow the extraction of petroleum reserves or natural gas from[…]

my first problem as junior mechanical engineer

I still remember when I graduated from Mechanical Engineering and directly facing the real world (petrochemical – oil and gas downstream) and nervous in the face of problems in the field that demanded the requirements of a mechanical engineer in understanding a problem quickly, and sometimes need ingenuity – the able to bridge between the theory of higher education and the world of work. The longer working on the front line maintenance – in terms of troubleshooting – enriches us in understanding the problems of the next process. According to my opinion, troubleshooting problems in the field is often a[…]

Introduction to piping system in Oil and Gas Industry

Piping system In the oil and gas industry (especially in the downstream and upstream), we recognize 3 types of piping system, i.e. Process plant piping system, non-process plant Piping system and Utility piping system. The process Plant piping system is sometimes referred to as process piping. As the name suggests, this piping system is closely related to the reaction process inside the plant that processes raw materials into ready-to-sell materials. For example, in Ammonia Plant, the raw material is natural gas and the product is an ammonia liquid with a temperature of -33 deg C. Process piping is very closely[…]
