We Are Automation, Controls and Commissioning Experts
We deal with the challenging task of PC&C, Testing, Turnover and Start Up. Getting to First Oil, Gas or Hydrocarbon is our primary goal. We have extensive experience in commissioning and start up of large industrial facilities including SAGD, LNG, Upgrading, Midstream, Off-Shore Production Platforms, Compression, Power Generation and development of SCADA host systems.
We know what’s on the line and we pride ourselves on meeting schedule and budget. No if’s, ands or buts. We work on behalf of the client project team and with the general works contractor(s) to ensure facility testing and turnover aligns perfectly with the planned system turnover definitions and schedules. Above all else our commitment to safety is our #1 priority.
We are automation and controls specialists who excel in the design and optimization of large control systems including process control and the integration of control platforms to provide information-based control solutions. These systems produce highly efficient process control interfaces for operations and engineering.
Our team has on average 25 plus years of experience in every aspect of oil and gas, energy and mining, nuclear, offshore and power generation.
We are automation, controls and commissioning experts. We own and provide our own end to end digital construction solutions (Littlefoot) which keeps projects teams on the same page throughout the project.
We are also boots on the ground trades experts. Our staff are excellent in managing contracts and trades interface.
Over the past 25 years we have continued to develop our Littlefoot project software. There has been considerable effort to insure Littlefoot simplifies the requirements of Pre-Commissioning and CSU. Littlefoot can easily be modified for your project specifics.
We do not seek to replace the teams that you have already attached in place. We can provide our own team, or work with your teams to provide support and/or training for established commissioning projects. We can also supply additional highly skilled team members if required.
Our focus is planning the growth and sustainability of systems as the facilities mature. We standardize programming methodology which greatly assists operator awareness and helps to reduce the cost of expansion to installed systems.
We prepare and complete punch lists to ensure system readiness. We ensure turnover is in accordance to client policies, standards and procedures. We compile all turnover documentation including applicable manuals and procedures.
We work with all groups especially Operations to ensure a smooth transition from RFSU and TCCC to live plant status. We work on behalf of the client project team and alongside the main contractor to ensure the facilities are ready to operate. We can assist or write and carry out the initial start-up procedures and demonstrate the functionality of all systems. We assist the Operations team and introduce product into the systems after fully documenting the system status and gaining sanction from the Operations group. We can carry out the required dynamic shutdown tests and train the operations team in starting and running the facilities.
We facilitate the verification of testing data, records and coordination for work that requires completions for each system/subsystem through the RFC (Ready for Commissioning and RFSU (Ready for Start up) stages to final handover stage. We ensure test packages are aligned to schedule. We verify punch lists associated with the work scope of project activities, administer the Punch list Register, and ensure commissioning sequences are correct.
We ensure any deviations to original work scope are documented from a Change Management perspective including CTQ and related NCR’s where applicable and are closed out. We Ensure subsystem RFC/RFSU walkdown records, including identified participants and ensure that subsystem document mark ups, as-builts and redline mark ups are current and complete.
We will ensure System/Subsystem Status Index and Punch list reports from the completion database are complete and turned over complete to the CMT including the outstanding punch list summary by discipline and category.
We set up the pre-commissioning and commissioning philosophy for CSU projects, including identifying preliminary systems/sub-systems break-down with lists of operational tests. We can prepare preliminary start-up sequencing for multiple facilities. We ensure all technical data (Commissioning Status Index) such as OTP (Operation test procedures) certificates, Operational Test Sheets/record, PVP sheets and functional sheets are signed off as required.
Our staff have superior knowledge of all types of project information, data and drawings. We are SME’s with construction modeling software and end to end digital construction solutions such as Bluebeam and Littlefoot which keep project teams on the same page.
We can represent Pre-Commissioning and Startup to facilitate the verification of testing data, records and coordination. We ensure completions for each system/subsystem through the RFC (Ready For Commissioning) and RFSU (Ready For Startup) stages all the way to final handover.
We ensure every RFC/RFSU contained subsystem or system for every dossier is added to the overall system handover dossier. We include any vendor work scope documentation ensuring that all company or vendors requirements have been met.
