Buru Ungani Facility Upgrade
Broome, Western Australia
Valmec was selected by Buru Energy to assist Technip Oceania with the Buru onshore wellsite facilities drilling program and facility upgrade of the Ungani oil field. The upgrades increased the Ungani facility production to 2,500 bblpd of fluid, of which 1,800 is oil.
All the brownfields construction work had to be scheduled around the planned drilling works. The project was executed on a fast tracked schedule in order to minimise facility downtime and hence lost revenue. Other challenges included the remoteness of the facility, the harsh environmental conditions and resource
constraints due to local accommodation shortages.
Valmec provided the flexibility of working alongside Technip and Buru for the design and commissioning/start-up phases and independently during the fabrication and construction phases. All required works were able to be completed within the fast-tracked schedule.
