Pan-Ocean Engineering Limited is a privately owned independent company, formed in 1989 with the principal objective of providing a comprehensive range of underwater engineering services to the offshore oil and gas industry. The company has successfully achieved this objective for more than 29 years over a wide range of projects for Shell UK Exploration and Production, ConocoPhillips (UK) Limited, BP Exploration, Talisman Energy Limited and Repsol Sinopec Resources UK.
The company’s operating philosophy is based on tailoring the services and facilities which we provide to match our client’s exact needs. Since these needs may evolve in the course of a project, it is essential that we maintain the flexibility to adapt in response to these changes.
In order to offer our clients optimum value, while providing a complete range of services, Pan-Ocean Engineering Limited has established a network of independent offshore engineering specialist companies with which we have successfully collaborated in the past. This approach has enabled us to minimise fixed overhead costs, both in terms of personnel and facilities.
The company provides complete solutions to computer data management requirements. In the case of Asset Integrity operations, this comprises an onshore computer network supporting a range of third party and in-house software packages, an offshore computer network for data acquisition and the skilled onshore and offshore personnel to operate the systems.Provision of all aspects of Subsea Asset Integrity Management from scope definition, budget development, Work Pack production, through to onshore and offshore management, inspection data analysis, cost tracking and reporting and final inspection reporting.
Subsea intervention programmes covering air and saturation range diving, ROV Support Vessel inspections covering pipeline and subsea structures, Platform Based ROV scopes and landfall inspections. Development of KPI’s to ensure efficient Project Management.
Provision of Inspection personnel for the offshore management of inspection programmes. Pan-Ocean’s involvement includes pre-project briefing of inspection and diving personnel if required, daily calls, feedback on anomalies found and assistance in work scope prioritisation. Prior to offshore inspection operation Pan-Ocean will brief offshore inspection personnel / Company Representatives on inspection requirements, receive daily updates from the offshore site and upload COABIS inspection data on a 24-hour basis.
Experienced in a wide range of subsea construction engineering services including: conceptual designs, fabrication drawings and cost studies, detailed designs, preparation of fabrication drawings and specifications, installation procedures, ‘as-built’ documentation. Services include platform structural repairs, riser installation, subsea pipeline tie-ins and vessel support modifications.
COABIS or paper-based systems are used by Pan-Ocean on many locations. POEL personnel have been involved with COABIS since its inception and are very familiar with Work Pack development in COABIS, loading the system for offshore use, exporting and importing files, and reporting from COABIS.
All aspects of Technical draughting are undertaken by Pan-Ocean from Jacket Plan and elevation drawings, to 3-D modelling of jackets, visualisation (to assist diver / ROV inspection), and animations. Typical subject areas have included: Mooring arrangements and flexible riser arrays, Seabed topography, Field Layouts, Seabed equipment designs and Installation sequences.
Developed emergency pipeline repair procedures for numerous pipeline and umbilical systems throughout the North Sea. Pan-Ocean also prepares repair alternatives feasibility and cost studies for a large number of damaged pipelines, submarine pipelines and risers.
