Design, procurement, pre-fabrication and field construction support for Camisea Subsea Pipeline Loading System.
The conventional trestle originally proposed for this project was the victim of local objections. These objections were based on the high visibility of such lines and concern that a trestle would interfere with fishing boat routes. The trestle was also subject to a risk of collision over the anticipated 35-year project life and was higher in cost than the subsea option.
While the system is designed to continuously circulate product through the cryogenic lines to keep them cold, the system’s thermal performance resulted in such a low boil-off rate that the pipelines can be shut-in between shipments for longer than a week and still maintain operating temperatures.
