The Shell St Fergus gas plant near Peterhead in Scotland processes oil and gas received from offshore platforms in the UK North Sea. LFF Glamal was chosen to supply the stainless steel piping package for a time critical maintenance and upgrade project. Material was supplied in accordance with Shell MESC specifications which included additional chemical restrictions, intergranular corrosion testing, radiographic testing, ferrite number testing and dye-penetrant inspection.
With such a critical project, Doosan was looking to achieve the quickest delivery possible whilst, at the time, the ongoing COVID 19 pandemic meant local lock downs and restrictions on material movement. Despite the challenges, and with steadfast support from our approved mills, we were able to successfully negotiate material delivery and ultimately received positive feedback from Doosan and Shell for what was an extremely difficult situation.
