PACKAGE NUMBER: EI109 TITLE: Crude Oil Interface Level Measurement System
Kiewit-Kvaerner Contractors (KKC) hereby invites interested parties to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) related to the future issuance of Requests for Qualifications and subsequent Requests for Tender for the following Scope of Work/Supply/Services package in connection with KKC’s EPC services for the Hebron GBS Project in Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada.
• The Scope of Work includes: Develop a permanent system which shall monitor data from instruments located in the crude oil storage tanks and the crude oil buffer tanks which measure the water/oil interface and calculate and monitor the amount of crude oil in the storage tanks. The instruments located in the crude oil storage tanks shall be able to detect the oil and water mixed layer. In addition the system shall detect possible crude oil in the buffer cells. The COILMS shall be computer based and be designed to perform tasks such as:
o Automatic data collection
o Processing
o Data presentation
o Recording
o Communication with other systems (delivered by others)

• The volume of supply shall be main and back-up sensors (21 off) in the Crude Oil Storage Cells, main sensors in the buffer cells (7 off) and a monitoring system located top sides. The monitoring system shall be able to communicate to other systems on common data protocols.

• Instruments must have reliability data, i.e. PFDavg (Probability of Failure on Demand) and SFF (Safe Failure Fraction) and Common Mode Failure rate (referred to as the Beta ratio).

• Location of the oil water interface is critical to ensure usage of the cell and to avoid pumping water, or sending oil into the sea

• Once installed in the storage cell, there is no access for life of platform (50 years), i.e. must be extremely reliable

• Readout includes oil-emulsion interface and water-emulsion interface
