The following case studies are drawn from Thunder Cranes’ project experience to help you learn more about how our services and products assist our clients.
Thunder Cranes was involved in a recently completed facilities engineering project in the Gulf of Thailand for Mubadala Petroleum. Three extension decks were installed on an offshore platform with lifting support provided by Thunder Cranes’ TC20 stiff leg type modular crane.
Part of a multi-year, multi-platform plug and abandonment campaign that began in 2019, the following case study is a description of how Thunder Cranes’ TC90 modular crane performs a key role in supporting the offshore activities for both HWU and RPU.
The goal of this project in offshore Thailand was the installation of new davit arms for FPSO life-raft upgrades. Thunder Cranes successfully deployed TC05 & TC15 cranes, enabling the upgrades to be completed on schedule and under budget.
The following case study describes the successful deployment of a rigless conductor installation system on an offshore installation in Dubai, UAE. The system has been shown to reduce rig time and expenses by pre-installing conductors prior to the arrival of the drilling rig.
Rapid deployment and self-lift rig up of TC20 and TC90 cranes enabled coil tubing work to begin ahead of schedule at this platform offshore Dubai, UAE. Furthermore, the “rigless” CT work supported by our cranes was a cost effective solution compared with expensive HWO rigs.
Thunder Cranes enables clients to make routine work more efficient, in this case by applying new methods to the challenge of installing compressor modules on platforms in the Gulf of Thailand.
From time to time existing platform cranes do not have the reach or capacity to support the entire well intervention operation. Temporary rental cranes are a cost effective solution to support a platform’s existing crane during projects that require additional lifting capacity.
Thunder Cranes was responsible for skidding a 120MT Helideck structure backwards by 7 metres in order to clear sufficient space to accommodate drilling rig activities at this Malaysian platform.
When platform space and access to the object lift are highly restricted it becomes necessary to design a customised lifting solution, as we did for the lifting and installation of HVAC units on this Malaysian platform.
There are times when conventional lifting capabilities will not work and clients require unique lifting solutions engineered for specific jobs, such as for this lifeboat extension deck in a Malaysian oilfield.
