Most of our clients have management systems and procedures that define how capital projects are handled. While there may be variations in the structure and terminology built into these systems, the phases and associated deliverables typically are fairly similar. It is well established that development of a good front end engineering design (FEED) is critical to achieving successful completion of a capital project.
Chemic is accustomed to working within the framework of individual client capital management systems. Our early participation in this process facilitates efficient and effective engineering services across the sequential phases of project execution. Initial project scope development work may include design basis development and feasibility studies. A conceptual design package and an order of magnitude cost estimate may be the prime deliverables from this early phase.
Chemic has the experience and capabilities to handle the entire range of front end loading (FEL) engineering and design deliverables that can be associated with a formal capital projects management system. This process may include some or all of the following tasks and deliverables:
- Process Simulation
- Line sizing and line list
- Mass and Energy Balances
- PSV calculations and specifications
- Utilities studies
- Equipment List
- Equipment Data Sheets
- Vendor equipment quotations
- Piping specialty items list
- Mechanical specifications for piping, insulation, painting, etc.
- Plot Plan and Equipment Arrangement Drawings
- Preliminary piping model
- Preliminary civil and structural design
- Preliminary electrical hardware specification and electrical drawings
- Preliminary instrumentation specifications, instrument list, and plan drawing
- Preliminary control system selection and specification
- Constructability, Operability, Maintainability Review
- Project Schedule
- Total Installed Cost Estimates
